Teak Treatment in the Tropics

I love teak it is a beautiful wood for sure. The stuff is a pain in the butt to keep up with nothing last very good in the tropical sun. I did my wood last spring and went cruising for three month to Florida June-Sept and the varnish three real good coats were history bare wood yellow creeping crud.I have tried Epathane and regular varnishes with little luck from ether. I am going to try some other tricks but I am haeding south again and maybe oil the teak and th hell with all that sanding just tape and wipe it on done for a couple of weeks to a month.
