Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Than The Rest I have been painting and refinishing professionally for over twenty years. IMO water based poly requires you minimize your brush strokes and move along quickly. The benefit to the person applying is virtually no odor, fast 2 hour recoat, simple cleanup with water. This poly goes on very smoothly and has enough open time to create a great finish. I have tried several other water based polyurethanes through the years and prefer Minwax Helmsman water base.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as expected Does not act like a urethane. Goes on milky white and doesn’t provide a rich warm finish to the wood like regular urethane does. Won’t use this product again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great durability Window finishing I replaced all windows in my house with Anderson wood framed. The window wood and trim are pine and I conditioned, stained and applied 4 coats of the Water Based Helmsman® Spar Urethane. It looked great 10 years ago when I did this project and it still looks great now. One window is right above the kitchen sink where it gets often splattered with whatever is in the sink. All it takes is a quick wipe with a sponge and it looks like new. The product is made to last!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product I just purchased this water based spar urethane and I have never used it before. The finish on my dining room table (also stained with a Minwax product) came out looking like it was professionally done. I did use an HVLP sprayer that is gravity fed. Since I was spraying the finish on a hot day, a painter friend had me add a little extender to it before spraying. I really am glad that I did as the material sst pretty fast. Another benefit was that the smell was almost non-existent. Awesome product and I will buy it again

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Porch Swing Flaking Finish I used this product to recapture a porch swing. Wire brushed and sanded previous finish. Coated with Minwax, allowed to dry 2 hours, lightly sanded and reapplied...coating flaked off. Repeated process...coating flaked off. I am now planning to resend and will use Minwax oil based poly finish. Time consuming terrible results with water based finish.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy or use the water based Helmsman product I have been very happy with Minwax Helmsman Indoor/Outdoor Oil Based product. I bought the water based one and it is terrible. As others have noted there is no way to apply this without visible brush marks. I have applied it on different woods with different brushes with the same result. I will be sanding off the water base and applying the good old oil base product. I believe the issue is that it dries too quickly and there is no chance for the product to self-level and have the brush strokes disappear. I hope they do not remove the oil base Helmsman from their product line because it is the only one that works.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I am an experienced refinisher. I followed the directions to the letter and used a top-quality brush. I applied four coats to a countertop. I had difficulty with brush marks, despite extremely careful application. After s i x days drying in excellent conditions, the finish still is marked by water. If I had read similar negative reviews previously, I never would have used this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware of this product. My husband thought this produce was an excellent solution to finishing wood countertops he painstaking scraped back to bare wood. He applied as directed. Waited the right amount of time per the label and found that any water stains the top. When the water dries the stain generally disappeared except this one. I'm writing this since my husband is angry. But I thought the company and others needed to know.
