      Thank you all for your participation on the JD Forums.  We have enjoyed answering your questions, providing project advice and technical assistance on this forum for a number of years. We believe that there are now better ways to provide this service for our customers and the community. With that in mind, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue the Jamestown Distributors Forum.   Our JD Tech Team is committed to being your trusted technical resource, and we encourage you to reach out via email, phone, social, product reviews, and to post questions using the Q & A 'Ask A Question' function on all product pages.

  1. I recently renamed my boat, which entailed sanding the transom to bare wood before the UV ghosting effect of the old name was eliminated. Then I applied 9 coats of Epifanes varnish, with one day drying time after each coat, then sanding with 320 before the next.How long should I let what I believe to be my final coat cure before applying the new vinyl name decal and then launching into the water? Thoughts welcome!
  2. Thanks, Rick. I was hoping to avoid all this, but understand. Out of curiosity, why do you propose Gleam, versus your newer Lust product?
  3. I just bought an old Chris Craft that was refinished and then garage stored some years ago. I removed the vinyl boat name and there are "ghosts" left behind where the varnish was protected from the elements. My plan is to lightly sand (220 grit?) this otherwise great finish and then recoat, but with what? I want an easy to apply varnish for this boat transom. Use a foam roller? Thanks for any tips.
