I 2nd Cetol Natural Teak. I have used Bristol Finish (2 part eurathane) and am not at all happy with the way it applies or smells although it looks nice. I have not tried Honey Teak yet but expect that the learning curve will be just as frustrating.
I also highly recommend you use some Teak Oil or Tung Oil on your bare wood to bring out the grain before you apply any finish to it. A quick wipe down with Acetone before you apply the finish will seal in a nice, rich looking wood.
Varnish is for people who can afford to hire and pay a maintenance crew.
