All

I am reading with interest the proposal of the introduction of the carbon mast, no doubt this will be fully debated at the inlands.
In Mikes reply I picked up the thread with regard to painting / varnishing of the carbon. I have a carbon boom which is begining to look faded. Has anyone any information on product / technique to get the boom back to its "shiny" condition. I would not be averse to applying a paint finish, again any info on this would be appreciated.
Any one out there who has goe down this route ?

Rub the existing finish down with 320 - 400 wet and dry and then apply two coats of two pack polyurethane varnish. International or Epiphanes is fine.
