Or work to pay somebody to work on the teak.
Or, if the guy working on the teak is costing you more per hour than you earn, take a couple of days off and work on the teak.
Or hire your buddy the house painter with low self-esteem. He only charges $25/hr? A business that grosses $50K/yr isn't a business- it's a hobby that isn't surviving.
IMO boat maintenance is a lot like illegal immigration. If you don't want to do it, you really can't bitch about the cost.
As boat jobs go, it doesn't get much more user-friendly than brightwork.
