Refinishing Teak

I can't seem to find an article or instructions regarding how to refinish/restore teak brightwork. We've just bought our first boat and the exterior teak trim is in immediate need of maintenance. Can you help?

Dan Dickison responds:
Congratulations on your new boat, and thanks for the question. We've got lots of information on that topic lodged in various places on the SailNet website. If you simply conduct a search (in the Search window that appears in the upper right hand corner of every page at SailNet) under "teak," you'll see that there are 50-plus articles that refer to that word. As a matter of fact, you can find information on most maintenance topics by simply conducting a search like that.

Now not all of the articles that you see listed will pertain to your question, but the first six definitely do. I particularly recommend Tom Wood's piece on "Bristol Teak." Here's a direct link to it: Bristol Teak Article.

Here's hoping you'll find the information you need in that article and some of the others. Best of luck with your new boat.
