... that for boats, it's best to varnish it, but on the top side only. Apparently there's no way to seal it (tiny cracks in the varnish due to flexing maybe), so varnishing both sides can just make it take longer to dry. That's what some say at least. I like Pat's idea (from the other post) of carefully varnishing over the spline too, to help keep water out of the glue. No real flex happening there so it should seal pretty well.
