thanks for the advice. I am not using Ultimate sole, as it is ultimately unavailable at the local marine stores (their words). I would have made plans to get it elsewhere, but decided quickly to put down the new sole, so I didn't have time to wait for mail order, etc.
The perfection is not regular varnish - it is a 2 part ployU varnish. The local shops said it was waht they would recommend, and it very durable.
The can did say to sand with 80 - 120 grit on new wood. I did scuff it with the 120, as I was off the net, and didn't see your advice. Could only put on 1 coat (thinned) as the forecast was for humid weather after that. Will now sand with 220, in between the next 4 (or so) coats. Looks good so far.
I am concerned with not having it too slippery, but am not sure if there is anything that can be done about that!!
