    Hey there! I am with RR and Peejay. Hereโ€™s what I do, albeit a much slower approach.
    If you have a spare piece of your veneer put a coat of resin on it just like you did on the boat. Let everything dry to the point of madness.
    As I am a test shot freakโ€ฆSand the spare veneerโ€™s resin evenly throughout and wipe with a rag with a bit of denatured alcohol on it. Then go light with a coat of spar varnish or a second coat of resin, thinned a bit with denatured alcohol and use a stiff brush to help keep the coat thin and even. If you like the result duplicate the steps on the boat.

    I used Floquil model railroad paint over a fiberglass finish on my trawler, and it has lasted over 35 years. The fiberglass can be considered to be just your waterproofed. If you sand it to give a little โ€˜toothโ€™ to a subsequent finish, it should be fine.

    I say sand it good and put on a second coat. Sometimes it takes 3 or 4 coats to look good. The first coat is always kinda ugly ๐Ÿ˜œ. RR

    Hi peeps
    I have a problem I am building slomo at the mo I have veneered it on top was not totally happy ,i have put epoxy resin on top and fibre glassed the bottom.
    I don't like the epoxy resin finish so was wondering what I could put on top of it could I use varnish over epoxy resin or could I paint it and if so would I need any special primer .
    Hears thanking everyone๐Ÿšคโ›ตcheers Phil.
