Re: Strip: Ready to seal coat Night Heron

You can wipe down the boat with water or denatured alcohol on a clean rag.

I've used both water and alcohol in this way with good success, though generally I just vacuum and brush.
If you have a dark/light stripping pattern, be a bit careful with the alcohol as too much (a cloth that's too wet) can cause the color to 'bleed' from the darker woods into the lighter areas.
