Mccklosky’s Man O War spar varnish is made by Valspar. The different colored cans may denote satin vs high gloss. Other wise, I’ve found no difference.
Mine comes from Wal-Mart @ 75 a gallon. It’s cheaper on line but shipping can more than eat up the savings.
It’s good stuff. It can be thinned for spraying or mixed with a BLO based oil (I use Watco) to make a wipe on finish.
