Varnish Cure before launch?

2 posts in this topic

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!

I'd recommend waiting at least a week before applying the new decal.
