Looking for suggestions on refinishing the entry stairs/ladder on our 94' Catalina 30.

After a nine year hiatus from boat ownership, I can truly attest to be blessed with a wife that is as excited about our new to us boat as I am. Funny thing having someone that has a say so on "our" boat and happily joins in on all the ongoing efforts. Love it!

I am particular about keeping our boat looking its best, and my wife would really like to tackle the entryway ladder to refinish the teak steps. Any suggestions on a durable finish that will withstand the non-stop traffic? Will Cetol withstand the abuse? Many thanks!

I used Minwax/Helmsman spray polyurethane semi gloss on mine, two years ago. looks good and is holding up well.

Looks like two days ago! Looking into it - thanks!
On my second C30 now - I have teak sides, not S/S - disassemble treads from the sides - strip old finish - 8 coats Interlex Schoorner Varnish - long lasting and looks great -
