Re: Wood Mast Varnish/Oil
I used "Coelans" on my douglas fir masts, three years ago, They still look beautiful and I expect it to last at least another five years, it looks like it will. At least 6 coats and plenty of primer, at least three coats. I always paint the top of my spreaders white, even with the coelans on them.
Check out www.coelans.de it is excellent stuff, now been reformulated and even better, it`s going on my bulwarks, toerails and covering boards as we speak! I used varnish before then, but used to put 12 coats on and it still even with two coats a year, lasted four years. I cannot reccomend coelans highly enough. It also looks fabulous! With a shine you could fall in and drown!

If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong.
