Cabin Sole Finish

My teak and holly sole needs to be refinished. Currently there is nothing on it and I was planning to use ultimate sole....but apparently they have pulled the plug on the product.
What else have people used for a high gloss non skid finish?
Thanks for any help

Polyurethane. Don't buy any of the new water based so-called polyurethanes, buy oil based, it holds up better. Make sure you sand it down to bare wood before applying, to make sure there are no other finishes.

We had very good results using MinWax Products obtained at Lowes and applied in very thin coats (16) with foam pads.

FWIW...

Google "Moisture cure urethane". Excellent finish for the application but it's VERY nasty to apply. A MSDS "4" if I recall correctly. There are several mfrs.
