F-1 bed wood coating

I need some advice on what to use to prep & coat the oak wood strips that I'm putting in my F-1 before the stainless strips tie them down. I've had several ideas and all are said to be the "best"! Oil stain, water based stain, varnish, shellac, etc. though one fellow says he used automotive clear coat on his teak strips on his boat & they are 6 years past & still look new! Any expert thoughts here??

Thanks for the input. After digging around the past few days I'm going with Behr Tung Oil which is readily available here and likely similar to formby's. It won't peel & a coat every year is an easy upgrade.
