finishing wood cabin sides...

Hello all. I am looking at a boat that has clear wood finished cabin sides (exterior) and I am thinking about long-term maintenance. I would want to retain the look of the wood but wouldn't necessarily want to have to strip and varnish it at every turn. What would be the drawback to coating it with resin and a layer of glass so you could still see the wood, but then apply a clear gel coat? Seems to me it would work "on paper" anyway... Any thoughts?
