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.

      I see on the cam that Joe's gate is open, but the access is pretty trashed with cones out front. Is it still driveable?

      I also needed to buy a receiver so my total cost was $500 but they did have them at Scheels beginning of the year but you can buy it from dish. I think they charge $7 a month for use of the receiver.

      I was out last night in west metro and the water had mostly either frozen again or gone down the open holes. I was pleasantly surprised. We lost about an inch of ice though the top few inches were starting to soften.

      I would build a frame that your current otter sled would fit in that has downhill skis on the bottom of it.  I did this for my setup that is very similar to yours, I can pull 100 pounds through 8" of snow with very little effort.  Side note I wouldn't pull it with a four wheeler, mine slides to easy and wants to hit the back of the wheeler when I try to stop.
