Hi Mike (Tugs53)

I've used an automotive clear coat (acrylic lacquer) on my AZIZ hull.  Why do you say DON'T use lacquer?  Should I be looking at refinishing with something else?

Lacquer in it's pure form usually reacts with enamel paint.  That annoying wrinkle effect.
If your application didn't do that initially; then you're fine.

For what it's worth Wilko's red oxide is the dogs danglies, just painted my hull and used satin acrylic polyurethane varnish and there was no reaction, lovely finish.
