Anchored in Deshaies, Guadeloupe with wonderful fresh French bread and pastries from the bakery and reasonably priced fruit and veges a plenty, it seems a great place to get a little work done. We are far from any kind of hardware or marine store and I wondered if there was some generic thinner for polyurethane paint? Obviously I'm not going to find the recommended Pettit 12121 for use with their Easypoxy paint.
Thanks.

I have used acetone with polyurethane paints. We are heading to Martinique in October, I'll bring some...:)
Thank you, acetone we have. And turps, though I'm not sure that with all the oil in turps it would be a good thinner for polyurethane. It's been so hot I need to thin the paint a tad. Just poor planning on my part, not having what I need to work in paradise. It would be sweet if "most larger hardware stores like Ace. and Tru-Value...at least at mine 'round here" were "round here"?
