Clear Coating Bubbles

Q: I rolled on a clear top coat by awlgrip on my boat. I now have bubbles on the clear coat. How or what do I do to get rid of them?

A: The only thing you can do now is sand down the coating and start over again.  There is nothing you can do to remedy the existing bubbles. Should you decide to redo the job, I suggest that you either brush on the clear coat or ask a painter in a body shop to spray it on using a professional spray gun. If you roll it on again, you will simply get the same result ... bubbles.
