Your companionway steps would be better off having non-skid material placed on the portions where feet touch it.....the purists will "gnash their teeth and wail" over that, but a set of varnished steps will cause you , a family member, or a guest, to do the same after an impromptu slip and tumble down the steps.....
On our interior teak, my wife has taken that job on (I''m too messy), but she is using a "wipe on polyeurathane" that we got a Home Depot. Thus far the teak that she has done looks absolutely GREAT!! Prior to her working on it, it was dull and dark...we were afraid more oil wouldn''t be of benefit. We like the "shinier look" on the teak anyway. Just read and follow the directions. Oh, btw- our boat is 26 years old...and the teak had not been maintained properly...looked sad when we got her.....looks great now.
