cabin sole refinishing

What is a good product to hold up to foot traffic for the cabin sole. Ours has a teak / holly ply top. We used varnish years ago and it held up well, but can't remember what we used.

Re: cabin sole refinishing

Captain's Varnish holds up pretty good. But do ventilate well until it dries.

Re: cabin sole refinishing

Having done a whole lot of research prior to replacing my cabin floor, I settled on Amtico. I got it in teak and holly. I had numerous samples from other manufacturers but most looked too fake/plastic for my liking. It comes in strips and you glue it down with thin alternate strips of the holly. After two years of heavy wear there's not a mark on it and it still looks brand new. Happy to post a few photos of you wish.
