Post Old C&C teak table refinish

Does anyone know if original teak trimmed table on 1980 C&C would have been oiled or varnished. I have mine out and lightly sanded, the way it fouls sandpaper makes me think varnish, but sure does not have that look. Which is better to refinish. Dave

If you are talking about the cabin table that drops down to form the starboard bed, then it's varnish. At least that's what mine (1981 C&C 32) is finished in.

Put some teak oil on it and let that dry and soak in.
Wipe down with acetone or alcohol a week later and then
Put on up to 10 coats of your favorite varnish.
The finish should last for years inside the cabin.

I don't use varnish for exterior wood though.

Thanks I kind of thought the table had been varnished, the teak oil starter should give it back some colour.

Use lots of sandpaper or clean the paper as you sand. even new teak will clog the paper. Don't think you need to go finer then 220 for a nice finish. it takes quite a few coats of finish to fill the grain

FWIW, my cousins, who restore wood boats for a living, gave me the following advice when they helped to re-do our cabin sole (they did all the cutting, my wife and i did all the varnishing):
1. Dilute the varnish with turpentine using a 80:20 ratio (80 parts varnish, 20 parts turpentine), this helps it flow better
2. Use a very low nap roller brush to apply (Don Casey's book doesn't mention this, but it worked like a charm). Roll very slowly.
3. The recommendation for the floors was 3 coats of high gloss epiphanes followed by 3 coats of rubbed-effect epiphanes
4. Between coats, we sanded with 320 grit foam-backed sandpaper, and then followed that with tack cloth. After the tack cloth, we rubbed down the wood with a damp/dry paper shop towel that had been soaked in turpentine

Here are the results (with one old floor board for comparison):
