If you seal the smoothly sanded wood with primer, then paint some enamel or automotive paint, that would cover the wood grain completely. Then a few layers of polyurethane for bump protection, then finish with some automotive clear coat for UV resistance if the poly is not already UV stable. It will be quick and easy. Not sure how it will hold-up over time or when banged against the boat or rocks.
