Another newbie here. I've been reading the forum quite a lot, it's been a great help. One thing I've been looking for but can't find is do I need to thin my first coat of varnish even if I'm going over CPES? Thanks in advance a I promise pictures to come soon. For your information I'm building Doug Hylans 13' peapod.

From the "V" section of the FAQ: Proper varnish thinning proportion (http://media5.hypernet.com/cgi-bin/UBB/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=1;t=006720)

Let's just say it's a frequent topic of conversation... ;) Good Luck!

Thanks Jim for finding the info, I thought I had already read everything on CPES and varnish.
