The hardest varnish I have found is Epifanes Rubbed Effect. I finished all interior cabinetry and the floors with it. Three coats on the floor and after 11 years it still looks great. very easy to apply and because it looks like a waxed finish, small imperfections don't show.

I have used Minwax Antique Oil Finish with great results on our 22 year old boat.
Just wipe it on in one direction only and if you miss a spot leave it and go back the next day.

Pulled out my original GB Owners Manual and find that they list my "varnish" as "Epiglass Teakwood Oil". Can't find anything about that brand online but I am betting a reasonable quality teak oil is what I need. Knew it didn't look much like any sort of varnish. Varnishing over oil, no matter how old, would probably have been a disaster.
