Once you see the damage,,its damaged, you can't undamage it. I saw whitened epoxy on the keeline of a varnished kayak where there was a strip of unvarnished epoxy 8"x 1". The kayak was outside all summer upside down between use. So that's three months of daily exposure about five hrs/day. My druthers would be to varnish it within a few months. The epoxy test on www.oneoceankayaks.com is worth reading for fundamentals on epoxy re. UV degradation.
