Sole preparation

Id try teak AB and plan on the oil finish you put on later to blend in any color differences between the cleaned and the wood that did not need cleaning.

Teak and holly floors are not traditionally varnished. They are oiled.

If the wood has been oiled in the past (besides the inadvertent oiling it got from the engine) you might have a hard time getting a varnish to stick.
