I googled it,
viewtopic.php?t=60467

Not sure what you mean though.... The guy thought he had a problem, but was told he didn't, other than not to use vinegar to clean the boat, just your hands afterwords.

I did have some issues with blush using fast hardner in cool humid temperatures when fairing my canoe last summer, but it wiped away no problem with warm water and mild dish soap and a dishwashing sponge scotchbrite side. (not industrial scotchbrite)

Hi,

I got some places like this on my boat.

It was created by orbital sander at fast speed with dull sand disk burning epoxy.

Regards,

Carlos

Type in "Blushing through fairing compound?", in this forum's page search on the top of the page. It's the cleaning with water only..... I have been told to use so many different epoxy cleaning products....

Another good read is this page from System3 with some good tips on using epoxy and fiberglassing:

That's just one section of the epoxy book, and I think the whole thing is a good read.
