To those that use teak oil - did you find that the oil eventually oxidized and blackened the exposed to weather teak?
After a complete stripping, our teak has been protected with Cetol Light for two years now and I'm satisfied to have made to right decision. Varnishing would have involved 10-12 initial coats plus two-three additional coats each year. Four intial coats of Cetol and one annual maintenance coat (after a light Scotch-Brite rub), was all that was needed.
On the other hand, after just one summer & two coats, the Swedish formula ($$$) teak oil I applied to the aft deck folding table, has blackened and is ugly! As easy as it is to apply, I'm considering other options for next year.
