sikkens cetol question

Gary, a friend was tired of going up his two masts (spruce, I believe) twice a year and revarnishing, so he stripped the main mast and applied Cetol. This was after he and I ran a test with a 4'' pine board for 14 months, to see how different layers of Cetol sealer and sealer + gloss would hold up. It seemed to work well on the board, and he''s satisfied with doing a once/year maintenance run, altho'' in the end I think he just went with the sealer. The spar looked fine and, given the older, darkened varnish on the mizzen, the difference was not that noticeable.
