BUFFING FINAL COAT OF VARNISH

GOOD DAY,

I HAVE BEEN WORKING HARD THE LAST FEW DAYS PUTTING VARNISH ON MY ALMOST COMPLETED GUILLEMONT DOUBLE AND HAVE NOTICED THAT ON EACH COAT, THERE IS ALOT OF IMPERFECTIONS ( DUST, BUBBLES, ETC.). AFTER I WET SAND WITH 320 GRITT, THESE IMPERFECTIONS DISAPPEAR. MY QUESTION IS -- AFTER I APPLY ALL THE COATS OF VARNISH, HOW IS THE BEST WAY TO FINISH THE FINAL COAT SO AS TO WIND UP WITH A SMOOTH GLOSSY FINISH?

SIDE NOTE: I'VE BEEN BUILDING MY KAYAK SINCE LAST AUGUST, HAVE ALITTLE OVER 300 HOURS SO FAR AND HAVE FOUND THIS BB EXTREMELY HELPFUL. I FIGURE I HAVE ABOUT A MONTH TO GO, JUST IN TIME FOR SPRING. THANKS TO ALL.
