Smile I'm oiling the deck teak instead!

Hello Fellow Sailors:

I have taken the majorities advise and decided to use "Starbrite" teak oil on the deck. I started last week and it is a simple job. I cleaned it, put a brightener on it and then oiled it. I'll spruce it up as the summer progresses with a shot of teak oil.

Thanks again.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Moe--

The next time you really need to clean your teak, try using some "Greased Lightening" from Lowes or Home Depot.




I don't knw what's in it but it does a heck of a good job cleaning up teak (brush across the grain!) and it's far less costly than the teak cleaners at marine outlets.

When you apply the teak oil, be sure to wipe down the caulking with a clean cloth soaked in Mineral Spirits to keep that clean. Works like a charm.

Cheers,

s/v HyLyte
