Re: Cetol Marine Finish Woes

I too think wood prep is key. It is very easy to stop just short of the final sanding surface needed. Any "soft" teak layer will create a less than perfect application of any varnish. My guage for having reached the right level of sanding is when a tack cloth run over the surface does not catch at all... My recommendation would be to work with a short section and take it to complete smooth 400 grit. If that works you have your answer...
