Wax after paint? How long to wait?

I have been topside painting in sections and need to know how soon to wax it?

What paint are you using? Some paints are not supposed to be waxed.

Exactly. Contact the paint manufacturer if you don't know the answer.

Usually I’m a Pettit girl, BUT, decided to go with West Marine part polyurethane topside paint. What a fabulous paint. I am using the roll and tip technique. It is usually recommended to have 2 people doing it. 1 rolling and the other tipping. I am doing it myself and this paint is perfect.

I will contact West Marine and ask them. I was under the assumption all paints needed to be waxed at some point.

Beautiful results on your paint job - are you planning to walk on that surface when it is wet?

It doesn’t show in the pics. It’s molded anti slip.

Yes those fender racks look tough to negotiate. Can you move them forward to get more walkaround room?

Yes, I can move them much further forward. You are right, it’s a must!
