Automotive Clearcoat Finish
The fiberglass and epoxy is protected by a final coat of transparent finish. This finish protects the epoxy from ultraviolet and slows down the natural color change of the cedar wood over time. This boat has been sprayed with 3 coats of automotive clearcoat. This is rugged 2-part urethane finish with holds a high gloss. Alternatively, a marine spar varnish can be used. The varnish is not smooth or as tough, but is easy to maintain.
