How many coats is enough?

After stripping and sanding down to the bare wood, followed up with a good TSP cleaning, I plan on using honeyteak Clear on my interior. I admit I'm totally new to varnishing and have been getting a lot of useful advice from Tom at honeyteak on how to do it. However the question still unanswered is how many coats should be used on the interior?

Having six windows and semi-clear hatches, I get plenty of filtered sunlight in most of the cabin, with a lot of direct sunlight near the galley, and the companion/entry way.

I've heard everything from 2 to 10 coats, and so thought I would check with you good people to get your opinion.

Thanks in advance!
