cabin sole coating

We've just applied the fourth coat of polyurethane to a freshly sanded teak and holly cabin sole. Should I stop? We don't have enough left for a fifth coat so either we just coat the high traffic areas once more or buy more.

Any comments on what to do?
Thanks.

Re: cabin sole coating

I'm no expert but I would think you have enough coats for the cabin sole.

On a hardwood floor in a house you'll find that most people will put two coats of clear finish, three is considered overkill; and I would assume the floor in a residence gets a lot more, and harder traffic that your cabin sole.

Just my thoughts.....

Thanks for the comment.

Only two coats in a house is considered enough eh?
We live on our boat and seeing as there is really only one path down the center of the boat that gets all the traffic, I think it will get a much harder life than the floor in a house where traffic is spread out more.

Re: cabin sole coating

Maybe go a year with what you have, but, plan on adding two more coats next year.

I live aboard. Three coats in galley/companionway area wearied off in one year.

Re: cabin sole coating

Like I said, I'm no expert, now, living on board changes things.
Buy another can and put 4 more coats..... the more the merrier.....
