Re: Interlux Schooner vs. Sikkens Cetol

I have seen weathered teak on another boat like mine and the coaming looked terrible with splits and rough/lifting surface. No thanks. I'd rather do a little maintenance every couple of years, than have to have it replaced for lack of upkeep. When the covers are made this winter I won't need to re-coat but once every 5 years or more. Teak decks should never be finished and for safety I did not finish the hatch cover but now I regret that decision, the teak is heavily worn. It will be easier to replace the wood than repair it to apply a finish at this point.
