    Default Spruce to Teak

    Having replaced my ancient bowsprit with a new spruce one, I need to stain/varnish it to colour blend it with the hull of my 1935 teak gaff cutter. Thoughts please on methods/products to help me. Thanks.

    Use Sikkens Novatec/Top with a suitable tint in the top coat.

    Varnish with Epifanes 1 pot.
    Most classic yachts do not have teak masts or spars
    so you don't need to colour match it..they should be different.
    It shows that you have chosen the right wood for the job.
    Each coat of Epifanes does darken the spruce
    so get about 20 coats on and she'll be right
    Cheers,
    Chris
