The big enemy of exterior teak is the sun. For interior teak, it doesn't really need any protection unless you want to change its look. If you like the way oil looks, use oil, but your will have to renew it ocassionally. Varnish will hold up a long time inside and look good. On recent models of cruising J boats, they have no wood on the outside, but lots of varnished wood on the inside; looks terrific.
