Can you tell us what the name of this stuff is? I have heard
of Berh's "pour-on" but have never been able to find a pro-
duct by that particular name in my local building supply stores.
(Plenty of Berh's paint products, but no Pour-On).
I have been using the Minwax Marine Spar Varnish on my
coils for the last several years now with good success but
of course it has to be applied via multiple thin coats to get
a reasonably thick coating.
