Larry ,
We just used a 1/4" nap . I couldn't find any thing smoother locally . I have never tried a roller with varnish . I needed a little texture in one area to help hide some flaws . Overall it turned out pretty good . We just finished up a couple hrs ago . Joy is going to do some touch up tomorrow and remove tape then I wiil post some pictures . I think on the Interlux 1 part it's all about getting it to flow and that means thinning but not too thin that it runs .
It gets tough trying to keep edge wet when cutting in around windows and changing directions .Long stretches in one direction works best .

The shiny spots in this pic are where we repaired some areas of non skid and did not go back with non skid . Plan on adding some teak rails and teak frames under the hatches that should help hide some of this .This area was rolled only .

Last pic . If I was to do this again I might would add a little flattener to hold down the sheen .

Thanks everyone for the nice comments . Every time I do a project like this something gets donated to the lake . This time it was my old Leatherman . The case looks sad . I have this for over 30 years!

The older we get, the greater the losses.

Yes , In a rush I put the Leatherman in a pocket in my pants with a hole big enough for a forklift to pass thru . I watched it hit the dock and then the water !

Large magnet on a cord?
I've done it for keys in approx. 50 ft of water.

I will try that . I think the whole thing stainless steel, but maybe if it's a low enough grade it will still take a magnet .
