I had bad staining from boogwood. I boiled and boiled it but the boiling
water still stayed brown. I drilled a hole and put the particles in warm
water and it immediately turned brown, so showing that there was a lot in
there still. I gave u, removed the bogwoodp and did many changes of water,
and the stain is now hasrdly noticable. My dealer recommended using Yacht
Varnish varnish to seal the wood and I am experimenting with that. I will
report in a couple of months.
