Redoing Cetol

My toe rail has Cetol on it that was done in 2008. I have added a coat once. The boat spent the winter in the BVI. The toe rail has spots where the finish has rubbed off or water has gotten under the finis in spots. A good bit of the rail looks good. I do not have to have it perfect looking. Do I need to take everthing down to bare wood or just lightly sand the whole thing and take the bad spots down to wood? RDW

Re: Redoing Cetol

We've used Cetol for years and love it. Sand the spots down to bare wood. Apply three coats of the base, we use "natural", and apply a couple of coats of the gloss if you have a gloss finish. Then lightly sand down everything and apply a coat of gloss. It should match fairly well. Chuck
