It is indeed useless. Best you can do is protect it from sunlight with a solid preferrably light color stain - top of boards only and only do the sides of posts that you see. Used to use Cabots but now thye only have water based stuff that will still protect but also wears off in much time faster than the old stuff. Personally haven't used it but my kids use Behrs and like it.
