Default painting a wooden outrigger

This a post that might have been covered before. I purchased a rigger that has a bad paint job on it and I am looking to strip it and redo it but I would like it to have the wood look to it. What would I use to protect the wood. Clearcoat???? Posible I might paint it too, Since this not abs plastic I'm not sure of the effects of the paint on the wood, I have plenty of access to auto paint or is there other options.
Thanks in advance hose man

You can use the same varnish as used on 1:1 yachts, three thin layers should be fine, more will make the boat more shining, if you want that, I'd use epoxy resin for the first two coats and finish with the yacht varnish, as the epoxy isn't ultraviolet resistent.

Regards, Jan.

I've used a 20 minute epoxy on my wood boats. Put it on then remove the excess with a (yes) paper towel for weight savings.

There is no such thingas a stupid question, I think that I'm going to have to paint instead of leaving a wood color. I guess the next is what color to paint and paint scheme.
Lifes biggest questions what color and scheme lol
