Re: Seat backs and bottoms (epoxy)

:D Research your varnish over epoxy.I've heard a 2 part perfection plus will cure.My Epifanes didn't even set up(after 3 weeks)over epoxy. used a water-based paint remover to remove varnish.didn't touch the epoxy so used an epoxy paint over.

Re: Boat Show 2019

:D Up here,I 've heard -the #1 cause of drownings is peeing off side of boat.Get an odd wave and over you go.Gotta have a boarding ladder to get back in.Speaking of which ,I gotta get one for each of my two boats.Crawling up side of running out board sounds a little risky.I use an ol' coffee can. :D
