Cetol Vs Honey Teak

Let''s face it. There''s nothing more beautiful on a boat than yards of glistening bright work, (as long as it''s on someone else''s boat!) The old J Boats are something to behold, but require a full-time paid crew to maintain.

So I want to get this right, the first time. After 20+ years on no maintenance, the exterior teak on my Express 27 is all coming off, and being replaced with new teak.

I''m willing is spend as much time as required, but after I bolted it all back on, I don''t want to have to think about it, except for annual (once-a-year) maintenance. I''m looking for that high gloss, ''8 coats of varnish'' look, but something a lot more durable.

I''ve heard good reviews on both CETOL and HONEY TEAK, and in another posting, someone even recommended a couple coats of varnish over these products.

Any thoughts?
