Re: Strip: Ready to seal coat Night Heron

DO NOT USE a tack cloth before epoxy. Ever. The cloth can contaminate the surface, interfering with the epoxy bond.

Like Jay suggested, dust is not that big a deal, but the best way to clean it off is with a vacuum or a brush. You can wipe down the boat with water or denatured alcohol on a clean rag.
