Ok, so this may be a stupid question - but what the hell, it's too cold out to to varnish outside so why not ask questions. The varnish on the 1965 Old Town I'm presently working on is in quite decent shape. I'll have to strip & varnish the inner rails & rib tips, but the finish on the ribs & planking is in quite nice condition save for one or two spots where some areas where the varnish was too thick & had flaked away from the wood. Plus the aged color is just prefect. I really don't want to strip this finish off if I can help it. Anyone see any reason why I can't add a few touch-up coats of varnish atop the old finish - as long as it's been cleaned thoroughly?
