I am not attempting to guess at the color on Bob's schooner but in the past the color that I have used for spars that are supposed to look traditional is a color called Grand Banks Beige. My take is that does not look like wood, but it does look appropriate for traditional painted spars.

Petit made the color in Easypoxy at one time and I have been pleased with it in the past. Interlux makes a color with the same name in Brightsides, but looking at color chips it appears to have a slightly greener tint. You might want to order a larger chip than the color charts at the store to see whether either is what you are looking for.
