Refinishing Clearcoat Kevlar Canoe

After a couple of paddling seasons my clearcoat canoe has a bunch of cosmetic scratches on the bottom. I would like to refinish the canoe at the end of this season for asthetic reasons. I recall seeing an article or a thread on refinishing using marine varnish. This seems like it would be easier than mixing epoxy, would add less weight to the canoe and would add some UV protection. Has anyone tried this or can you provide a link to the article? Thanks!

Great instructions for doing the job.
