There are plenty of two-pack varnish systems out there that would take a two-pack over the top - but if you want to be able to cut back to your varnish later, you wouldn't be using two-pack over the top.. IMO.

..unless you're drunk.

EDIT: To be honest, you don't really need varnish underneath - CPES would seal the timber just as nicely and be heaps easier to apply - but I think Jon's point was that you could paint over a good varnish. Heck, I find myself painting over good varnish all the time: a drop here and a smear there..

A bad day on a boat beats a good day in the office
