Varnish

Hi, I know there have been a few posts about varnish, but I have another question. The varnish that is at the big box hardware stores, the outdoor varnish, is it ok to use on a canoe? They do sell a helmsman brand that is for outdoor use too. I don't know where they sell the epifane or marine varnis...

Re: Varnish

Thanks. Those are the answers I was looking for. Like I said I was doing some research and didn't find anything like that. This is my first of hopefully a few canoes and I didn't want to mess it up.
