Floor replacement

I have a zodiac futura and need to replace the front 2 floor sections I have the 12mm thick marine ply but am slightly confused by the different amount of paints.
Could somebody recommend a type (polyurethane, epoxy, barge type paint? etc) and where best to obtain it, if epoxy is the best option which type premixed or 2 pack ? I have looked through e-bay and seen lots of possibilities but the choice is confusing.

I will also repaint the transom at the same time so any rough idea as to how much paint I would require.

I've used Danboline Bilge paint on the transom - lovely stuff to use - like single cream. Not so sure for the floor - you'd want to maybe use a non-slip type or throw in a suitable anti slip 'grit'.

Factory paint is catalyzed polyurethane (two part poly paint).

Any paint works to prevent rot / damage, but I recommend the two part for best durability and chemical resistance. Spilled gasoline might eat it off otherwise.
