I second that

I agree with Cam. I just redid my washboards, retainers, and other random pieces of teak from around the cockpit with this stuff. The color is very natural and the grain shows through wonderfully. I'm planning on doing my toerail and handrails later this summer with Cetol natural teak.

I know, I know, there's nothing like real varnish. Real varnish rules the world. Everything else is a cheap, inferior, imitation. Only losers would use something other than varnish. Varnish, varnish, varnish. Well, this looks pretty friggin' good to me and it took about 15% of the time of varnish. Personally, I like to spend my free time sailing.

I used two coats of the Cetol Teak and three coats of the Cetol gloss, LIGHTLY sanding in between coats. I am very pleased with the product, , I just wish I could not get bubbles in my gloss!

Time will tell how it will hold up, but I'm hoping for a light sanding and additional gloss coat once a year. (I have very little teak to maintain.)

I'll post some pictures after I get back to the boat.
