As Jim said - the less tint and the more it covers the surface, as opposed to soaking into the wood, the shorter its life - most of the covering types like urethanes you are lucky to get 2 years from, and because they seal in moisture that gets throguh the dsurface, they rot the boards in a few years. You best bet all around is a deep penetrating oil based sealer, but sounds likek you already stained so that may be out.

From my personal experience - Olympic good, Behr bad, Thompson Waterseal worse than useless.
