Used Bristol Finish for 5 years in Florida
. Had problems with bubbling and cracking, yellowing and what not. Confronted the inventor on boat shows.
It was my fault of course, wrong temp, wrong prep, wrong method of application, etc.
Finally hired a pro to strip all the sh!t off, then applied 12 coats of Epifanes Varnish
and in the Fort Lauderdale
sun had to apply maintenance
coats every 12 months like clock work. Usually 3 or 5 coats every year.
Been getting the varnish for $22 per quart when buying
Good stuff, but will still get burned in strong sun.
The Bristol stuff seems to be the same as clear coat for cars and it sure needs an controlled environment
when applying, 99% of us does it outside with no control over humidity and sun, etc.
Not suitable for boats, although some guys get good results..
