I am wondering if there is a product that is stronger than Man o War
marine varnish yet not as difficult to apply as fiberglass resin. I am
building some skimboards for friends and family and have used the
marine varnish but it doesn't seem to hold with the sand grinding away
at the bottom. Is there a 'in between' I could use on these wooden
Sand is quartz, very hard, and nothing will stand up to it.
I would try a (genuine) polyurethane, which as enough elasticity that it
might do well against sand abrasion. A two-part polyurethane system, not
the so-called polyurethane in a one-part can.

There are now 2-part epoxies that have UV protection included. West System has
one. Epoxy's achilles heel as a coating has always been UV degradation. That has
been solved by a few epoxy companies who now have hardeners formulated to avoid
UV issues. I am not aware of any one part finishes, varnish or otherwise that
would solve your particular problem. Once you learn how to work with two part
finishes and epoxies, it really isn't that difficult.
