underwater coating

2 posts in this topic

I am refinishing a 16 foot wooden stripper canoe, it has a west system fiberglass finish, recently applied. There instruction manual says I should apply a Linear Polyurethane finish for UV protection. However all that I have looked at and all the varnishes say not to be used below water line. Any recommendations? The canoe is not stored in the water. It is used for excursions and then removed and stored indoors.

So long as the canoe doesn't stay in the water more than a day or two, the varnish will be fine below the waterline.
