I’ve had great success with a product called Epifanes varnish. This stuff is not cheap and requires that you apply multiple coats. Following their directions, I used it on an outdoor bench made from white oak. After seven years, it still looks like new.

I’ve heard of that one. I’ll look into it. Thanks :-)

Define best.
Beautiful – good spar varnish, Larry’s suggestion I right up there.
Ease of application and maintenance – Cetol
My own boat is almost all Cetol and the maintenance is minimal.
