The key to varnish is depth of initial application. Most failures occur when folks apply 4-6 coats and call it done. Good Akylid varnish erodes from the surface if done right. Done right means a minimum of 8-10 coats. This protects the base of the varnish from UV and keeps it from lifting and peeling. Once ya have a proper base, two fresh coats per year after a slight scuffing, will keep it nice for years. A well done varnish job will last up to 10 years if maintained properly, even in Florida....
