I am refinishing my wife's lovely classic runabout, the C-Rea. It is a mid fifties Custom Craft, a popular kit boat company. I have not had to refinish it for some tie as the finish has stood up pretty good. I keep it in the water in the summer but keep it covered. It is garaged in the winter. I sanded the existing finish and prepared it as best as possible. I put 2 coats of Spar varnish on and am just finishing up the final wet 600 sanding.
This is where I need the advice. As I understand it, I will add one more thin coat of varnish, dry and buff. I will then come back and tape the lines and paint.
Is this correct? What tape do I use and is it sill One-Shot sign paint for the lines?
Thanks for all your help.

I found the greatest help on refinishing an old woody here: www.vintageraceboatshop.com/Stain-Varnish.htm really a step by step with great pics. Here is the C-Rea with the third of 12 coats, Epifanes Gloss Spar Varnish.

She's coming along nicely! I put 12 coats of Epiphanes on my Wagemaker Clipper.
