        Boards is a pretty generic term.
        Not trying to cause an issue but just concerned that you bought the right materials before sealing with any thing.
        Real pine treads are thicker, and not just one piece of wood. There laminated strips of wood to reduce cupping.
        There also rounded on the edge that over hangs.
        Poly made for floors is what you need. The more coats the longer it's going to last.

        Go with a high gloss poly designed for floor use. All will tend to yellow a little with age but the water based versions will stay clear longer. Just make sure whatever you use is rated for floor service.
