Bill, I have 2 coats of the 1015 on my bout now and it is awesome in my opinion. I pulled to boat off the trailer to finish painting the trailer. but I'll post pic later next week after coat #3. I'm new at this, but I'm seeing no reason to put 6 or 7 coats on whit this varnish. We'll see

The reason for the extra coats is the UV blockers in varnish float to the top of each coat. Some gets sanded off for the next coat. Building up more coats increases the UV blocker so the wood is protected. Some of the high build varnishes that do not require sanding between coats could get by with less.

Roberta is very correct. You need the extra uv protection.

Good point. I didn't stop to think more coats adds protection.

I used 2056 on my Zip. All came out well on my deck & transom.
