How many coats of spar varnish?

4 posts in this topic

I've got the first two pieces of my boat floor cut and I have a couple coats of spar varnish on. I'm using 3/4" untreated ply. How many coats should I give them?

AT least 2. But more will give you more protection. It will need to be done yearly though. Why not just carpet the floor?

I'm going to carpet also. I'm putting a flat floor in my v-hull lund and need to protect the new wood from water also.

IMO you need at least 4 coats to protect it under carpet, even then I don't believe long term looks good...You should have started with treated or marine ply.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
