Odourless varnish

Love building fly rods, particularly on CTS blanks. I usually use spar varnish or something similar to coat the blanks, with good results. But my wife of many years has become quite sensitive to the odor, which poses an imminent threat to my future as a blank-rod builder. Anyone know of an odourless varnish or polyurethane compound? Suggestions appreciated... thanks in advance...

Any of the water based urethanes used for floor coatings would be okay.

Mel,
Use U-40 PermaGloss just once and your wife will never complain about spar varnish again. lol
