re-coating an old finish

Post by LEE SCHNEIDERMANN » Mon Jul 09, 2012 10:42 pm

I'm sure this is covered somewhere, but I couldn't find it.
I'm about to re-coat the hull on the wife's Freedom 15.
Everything is sanded, but I'm wondering if I should wipe it down with a chemical wash to insure a good bond between the old epoxy & the new?

A light scrub with acetone wouldn't hurt. But sanding should have taken care of things.
