how about coat it in epoxy then do a " hot coat " with something like bright sides. ie paint the bright sides on it when the epoxy is still tacky

It's most important to seal the edges so the plywood doesn't delaminate.

Epoxy primer followed by a non-skid deck paint is what I have used on my floorboards with good results. i took them out for a week to assure that they were thoroughly dry before sanding and coating them.
