Since I'm doing a bit of mast down rigging and replacing wiring/antenna, I have my wooden spreaders off.

After a light sanding with a pad sander, they look very good but need a protective finish.

The simplest is to varnish, sand, varnish, sand until I build up 6 coats or more.

Another option is to coat with West system Epoxy and do a couple of coats.

One or two part Epoxy paint is another coption.

And the last involves painting the top white (supposedly deters birds perching on them) with either varnish or epoxy on the underside and edges.

What have you done with yours?
