Teak decks - are to be left natural, no coatings or chemicals, no exceptions.
Teak trim, such as toe and cap rails, doors/ hatches, grab rails, etc., in my opinion, only look proper if coated with a hard protective sealer. The choice between varnish, Cetol, Bristol or other finishes, can be, and has been, debated in hundreds of threads on SailNet. Check the archives.
The final choice of finishes is dependant upon the amount of money available to hire pros, or the time and effort you are willing to sacrifice sailing days for.
