I believe I used a semi gloss poly on the deck. Hope this helps.
I do on all areas. I like the way it looks. I even add to painted surfaces to enhance the lookDo you recommend using this finish for most decks? Instead of a varnish or stain? I’m still looking for something that would look good on all decks. Maybe this will do.
Karl, I went back and looked to see if I had any notes on what stain(s) and I don’t have anything written down. I don’t remember exactly what I used but the stains I typically like are walnuts, oaks and ebony. I probably used an oak stain on masts and deck. Likely walnut on deck furnishings. Ebony not on this model but I like it for display stands and certain areas as highlight. Hope this helps
