So we've been (v-e-r-y slowly) removing the old varnish
from the small amount of brightwork on our Valiant 40, and re-'varnishing' it with cetol. We live on the central coast of BC, where it rains 13 feet per year, so finding dry days to get this done is not a small challenge.
I recently got 4 coats on the combings in the cockpit
, but not one every 24 hours like the can recommends-- instead I got 2 done in one day (it was particularly dry and warm, so it was not even tacky after a few hours), then another the next day, and the 4th about a week later.
pools on this area when it rains (which it does....alot), and I'm noticing a discoloration-almost a white color- where water
sits on the new cetol. WHY?! After the first time I noticed it, once it completely dried, I did not see the spots, but they have returned with more rain.
This makes me apprehensive to keep cetol-ing, if the water is damaging it, or if we will always have spots (because- have I mentioned?- it rains alot)
