Two coats of the white, two coats on the cockpit trim, and one coat on the sheer line trim. The trick is to have a keel strip of thickened and colored epoxy for wear. The keel takes most of the abuse. The paint is pretty durable, but I occasionally touch it up. No need to varnish if you're painting.
