I've finished the huge step of filleting, glass-taping and cockpit glassing on my CLC 17LT. It was an all-nighter, so fortunately I didn't have to work the next day. Question. My plan is to bright-finish the boat, but how do I varnish the cockpit once the decking is installed? Is it best to varnish the cockpit prior to deck installation, or wait and just varnish as far forward as I can reach? I'm assuming that the cockpit epoxy will also need UV protection, at least for the area that's exposed, via the coaming, to light. Any suggestions are appreciated.
