Haze on new cetol ???
I just put a my fourth coat of cetol marine light on my hand rails. I did it in the afternoon about 3:00 the temp was about 15 Celcius it went down to about 8 Celcius that night. The weather changed the next day and it rained by about noon. I went to the boat today and found what I had feared. The cetol had not yet cured and had gone quite hazzy with water spots. Any thoughts on what I should do or have to do??? I live In Vancouver BC so it could get warm again this Fall. Do I need to just light sand and then apply again. Should I leave it until spring when it isn''t so damp? Do I have to take it back to bare wood again? help?? Is there a problem leaving the last bad coat on there until it spring ?

I had this problem when an evening dew fell on our back deck after I had applied a coat.

The Cetol instructions say to sand the haze area and apply another coat in the proper condiitons. This worked fine...

good luck.

Ha I am going to be putting my boat up there some were in Canadian waters next spring. I had a boat in Port Moody for a wile, are there any real good marinas with good rates up there you would recomend. It is a 38 foot Ingrid but thay have a huge bow sprit that makes it a 47 I am hopping to find a marina that will take pitty on me and not charge me for my bow sprit.
