Teak Floor/Seating

T37 is spot on right. I missed that detail earlier and was referring to brightwork finish primarily.

The teak flooring and seating offers a non-slip quality to it, even when wet. You should not put anything on it or your be slipping and falling all over the place. Teak decking, seating, flooring should be left natural to retain its non slip quality.

WSB,

Others may chime in, but if it were me, I wouldn't do anything to what I see in the pic above...just let it gray. If you did anything, try a little sealer on one of the seats at the helm (less likely to step on it), and like I said, the Semco is a great product. If you don't like it, it will be gone within a few months Anything else other than oil or sealer will be a pain to remove

Nice boat BTW

Cheers,
Shawn

You might give this consideration if your intent on doing this ..

TeakGuard Products - Teak Finish and Restoration Superior to Teak Oil

"Go Simple...Go Large"

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.


The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

Just let it gray. The whole reason for the teak is as antiskid. If you coat it in plastic, it is pointless! If you want it to remain looking brown, just put on the occasional coat of teak oil. Gray is distinguished and classy on a well maintained boat.

Still don't know what to do... So many different option...

I want the "wet" look provide with oil or varnish but varnish is slippery and oil get dirty and will turn grey anyway?

I don't belive there is not product with UV protection and grip to avoid slippery finish?

WSB,

If you are talking about the teak surfaces shown in the photo (beautiful, by the way ), I agree with the others who have said that this teak should not be treated with a hard coating like varnish or cetol. Doing so would only make the teak slippery and would defeat the purpose of its use as a non-skid surface.

Most folks would just let it weather naturally, but if you really want to keep it shiny/bright looking, the most you'd ever do is lightly sand it and treat it with some sort of teak oil (see recommendations above).

There is no need to protect this teak from the UV. I only mentioned UV protection in my previous posts because you were talking about coating it with epoxy. Epoxy needs UV protection, teak doesn't.

So like my bottom paint, I give up and take your advice guys and let the teak natural and make my mind to live with gray/black wood with a crappy black bottom slowing my boat!!!

Just kidding, natural teak and antifouling bottom will only make me more often sailing than cleaning, right?

As others have said, teak decking, unlike other teak bits on the outside of a boat, is generally left natural to take advantage of its non-skid qualities. While it will go gray, I believe folks with teak decks scrub them down with saltwater periodically to keep them clean.
