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.
