  What I used was
  Posted by: pirateoverforty on Jun-20-13 10:28 AM (EST)

Rustoleum ultimate spar varnish (gloss). It is water based. I followed directions on the can regarding applying coats. It sat in an air conditioned room for about two months after finishing before being used, so it was thoroughly dried.
When the stain didn't take I suspected that maybe the old finish was impregnated in the wood but I had definitely sanded off all surface finish. I spent several weeks hand sanding them.
I had already done the refinishing when the previous thread came out and as soon as I got off the water and looked at the paddles I remembered that phrase about sun burnt skin.
