Deck Varnish

Should I varnish the deck before I apply the caulk, or apply the caulk, sand, then apply varnish?

1 . Varnish first , seal the wood.

2 . Mask up the seams and caulk.

I am perfectly aware that the majority of Wooden Boat aficionados are sensible folk.
However, I need to point out that I am an amateur wooden boat enthusiast simply writing in order to try to help other amateur wooden boat enthusiasts.
And while I take every care to ensure that the information in DIY Wood is correct, anyone acting on the information on this website does so at their own risk.
