Before beginning any varnish work on the coamings, my first step was to mask off the bottom edges all around the deck.
Afterwards, during the course of the day, with warm weather, I was able to apply three build coats of varnish to the bare-and-sanded areas at the top edges of the coamings and other areas. Building up the finish in these areas first would then allow me to blend a few final coats over the entire coamings, while being sure to have sufficient buildup on the most vulnerable areas.
