The Right Tools
A quick walk down the dock can usually tell you which boats are dialed in and which ones are not as up to par. Using the right products is paramount to getting the results that the pros do. Like any job, using the proper high-quality tools makes for a good outcome — and usually makes it much easier as well. To tackle any brightwork project, you're going to need good-quality masking tape, razor blades, 3M green pads, sandpaper, tack cloths, denatured alcohol, clean rags, clean quart pots, strainers, good brushes and a good-quality varnish or paint product.
