    Re: Wood Stain for mast

    Good point. I did not think of that. Didn't even consider it would fade. The golden oak I have is really far off from the desired color. Is there another starting color you would recommend?

    The seams are not spitting any putty out and I don't think any frames are broken but I will take a closer look. Could it be fastenings that have loosened up?
