Question boat floor sealer

I am very soon getting a new Haynie boat and was curious if anyone who has a non-skid gelcoat floor has ever put a sealer to prevent staining. I had an older boat that would get stained and I am looking to prevent staining if possible. I have used woody's wax in the past but was thinking about a clear sealer like marine grade Toon-brite or something similar. has anyone ever used a regular clear sealer from Sherwin Williams that could be brushed on.

I had safe floor put in my boat. It is easy to wash of and has not stained in 7 years.

What kind of stains? The splatter deck gelcoat finish is super common on numerous Texas built boats. Generally very easy to clean. If you leave something rusty it will bleed in but FSR will get that right up. My last two Haynies were a 98 and 99 they looked new when i sold them last year. My current splatter deck hull (different manufacturer) is a 2008 and looks new. Previous owner left some rusty stuff in places which leached onto the flooring gelcoat but since cleaned right up with FSR and now no worries. All stored outside.

If leaves or something is a problem where you are store inside or get a cover.

No experience with the other products mentioned as necer had a need.

I saw Starbrite recently came out with a deck wax that claims to do exactly what you are looking for. I bought some but haven’t had a chance to try it out.

The starbrite deck cleaner is awesome. I spray that stuff on, brush it, sit for a few minutes and rinse. Does a much better job than just soap.

oak leaves will certainly stain. Cover of some sort is best for that. I guess it would be helpful to know what sort of stains you're looking to prevent. Most things like blood and fish slime from the fish will power wash off.. except for snot from gaftop, that is some sticky stuff. Do not let that stuff dry. LOL.

2 X on Starbrite Boat Deck Cleaner. I've been using it for about a year now and it IS awesome. Over time, also seems to restore mildly oxidized deck surface.

woody wax works good to prevent stains on nonskid
