vertglas and teakguard

I found a website claiming to have some revolutionary products, teakguard and vertglas. Does anyone have any experience with either of them?

I tried teakguard one season. I didn't think it worked any better than just oiling the teak. It did not stand up to wear and ultimately ended up flaking. It is easy to remove when you want to start over.

I have a teak cap rail running down both sides of my boat. I wish Beneteau had just used an aluminum toe rail. I have tried a number of products - various teak oils, ceatol, teak guard. Last season, I just cleaned it and let it weather. I hate maintaining teak.

Herb,

I just bought a fisher 34 and the teak treatment is peeling. I'd like to go natural like you did. Is there any downside? Is the teak not protected this way or is it naturally protected?


What is the best way to get the old coatings off? Heat gun?
