I just happened to notice a can of Minwax stuff in one of your piccies. Firmly grasp that can, walk to the open door of your shop, and fling it as far as you can. Do ot look back. Go get some Captain's Z-Spar varnish and use it. Never look back.
Jack.. I noticed that also , I figured it belonged to his helper since you have to be really squirrely to use it or even have it near your boat , fortunately it was just stain and not ( SHUTTER ) there crappy varnish. :twisted:

Looks like it was for staining, not clear coating.

Well my helpr got a 20$ and spent most on nuts. Thats what he
brought back. It was "on sale" as I later found out. Yep, it's just
waterbased stain. The little guy came back with no beer. :cry:
