Re: Waxing varnish?
There's a huge difference between waxing that nice flat deck on the Chris Craft and a curved cap rail on a sailboat. For a wax job to come out properly, I believe it requires a buffer, which would be very difficult on a curved surface like a cap rail.
I also suspect it would interfere with the recoating, especially in any joints (cap rail to toe rail/bulwark, for instance) where the wax would be nothing more than an unbuffed residue.
If you want more depth in your varnish, apply more coats, wet sanding between them.
