Minwax Helmsman Spar Urethane and BIN is a good combo that works for me but I use rattle cans. You can cut the Helmsman with mineral spirits.

The SOL board has a good thread on a test they did with a bunch of sealers. Search for "Plug sealing experiment". All sorts of charts and graphs you can draw conclusions from.

Thanks for taking me fishing Grandpa!
