Very bad experience

Comments about Interlux Compass Clear Varnish:

I purchased this to dress up the existing top deck spar varnish on a wood boat I restored 5 years ago.
I prepped the boat and the first coat of this took hours to set; letting dust settle into the finish.
Can says it can recoat in 8 hours; 12 hours later and you could put your finger prints in the finish.
I did not use any additives. 8 days later, I was able to sand and prep for the second coat. The second coat actually reacted to and lifted small portions of the first coat. One week cure again; sand paper fills with gummy residue and does not sand well. There are still some soft spots in the finish. I will give it another few days, make a final prep and USE A GOOD SPAR VARNISH; NOT THIS ONE!
