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.

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.
