Finish for the cabin sole

Nothing is ever simple. Previous owner of my 1977 O'Day 27 project didn’t pay attention to his chain plates because he hid them behind 1/8" mahogany strips which he applied to the 1/2" plywood bulkhead. So out comes the rotted bulkhead, and then the head for an upgrade and then the hull liner behind the head and then all the contact adhesive used to hold the foam backed liner to the hull. What the heck since I had the compression post out I figured that it would the right time to refinish the 3/8 x1-1/2"" mahogany cabin sole. Now that I am ready to begin to put it all back together any recommendations on a finish product for this application?

Ultimate Sole... good stuff for a cabin sole... not slippery even when wet... relatively low maintenance..

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

We can second SDs recommendation - having just used Ultimate Sole on our boat.

Really good finish, easy application. We have been using other finishes in the past (varathanes, and old fashioned spar varnish) with less than stellar results. Ultimate goes on beautifully, and dries smooth and bubble free.

Not cheap, but worth it. (and we imported it after buying on-line - worked out to close to $100CDN/quart after $38US purchase + shipping and customs brokerage fees - ouch!)

Should I use their sanding sealer or just cut the product 50/50?

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

Thank you all for the information. I'll let you know how it all turns out. Is there ever a spring where all you need to worry about is bottom paint & polish?...

Nope... not if you own a boat... the bigger the boat, the more you have to work on...
