it is my belief that UV is the culprit for killing the color in Red Cedar and other woods.
if you can apply several coats of a high grade clear marine spar varnish immediately
after processing, you “might” extend the fading effects for a few years over the polyurethanes.
there are several good brands of marine spar varnish with high levels of UV inhibitors on the market.
6 to 8 coats will be required for the best protection.
