I bought a quart last year in hopes of a refinishing job I'm just getting around to now. Good to know that I'll be able to put something else over it in the future - or perhaps it will return to the market.
I've decided to strip the sole first. Ultimate sole recommends using their ultimate sealer on a stripped sole (which I was in the process of looking for when I discovered their demise). Any suggestions on a replacement sealer to use first? Do I really need to re-seal after stripping?

I spoke with one of Ultimate Sole's distributors in Canada yesterday and asked him if they carried it. He kind of chuckled and sighed and said that they were restructuring the company and that it WOULD be available again sometime (no specific idea when) in the future. Why they're not getting the word out is beyond me ... I sent them an email and it did NOT bounce so it's sitting in someone's inbox.
I also asked him what was compatible OVER Ultimate Sole (I probably have enough to do mine) if it isn't available in the future and he said "any varnish".

I've heard of 2 alternates for ultimate sole
GymsealŪ Floor Finish
waterlox, tung oil, tung oil finish, waterlox tung oil, floor finishing, floor refinishing, tongue oil varnish, polyurethane, floor finish, wood floor finishing, wood floor refinishing, wood floor varnish, wood sealer, wood floor, hardwood floor, VOC
Both are said to do well under wet feet

I'm searching this out too.
I was thinking about doing a test strip on the shower board in the head which I did with ultimate sole as well. Maybe a polyurethene..?

Does anyone know what is compatible with Ultimate Sole? More specifically, if you've already applied and need to refinish down the road what product(s) can you use over it?
I have *maybe* enough product to do my small sailboat with ... but I'm afraid I might get about 3/4 done and need some more. I'd like to use it but ...

|josrulz||Yeah, I have no idea if the "account of events" given is accurate. But the fact that Ultimate Sole is still not available is nonetheless disappointing.|

The sole of our current boat is a ways from needing a refinsh, but I looked for Ultimate Sole at the boat show last year so I'd have some on hand when the time came. I'm hoping now that the product gets reintroduced or someone else steps up to the plate before my sole is truly worn out.
