Teak Treatment for Toerail

I see that Star Brite has a product called "Tropical Teak Oil Sealer," which they claim lasts and will never turn black. I stripped all the peeling varnish off Jolie's toerails and would like to put some kind of protectant on the wood, but don't want to go the labor-intensive varnish route. Time is better spent cruising. Has anyone here used this product? Results?

Not familiar with that particular product. If redoing the varnish is out, then your two choices are Cetol (or similar) finishes or teak oil. Strange that this product uses teak oil in the name because the WM description almost sounds like Cetol. May just extend the time between recoating with teak oil.

YES, where are these good & peaceful Muslims? Why don't they stand up, and declare themselves? It seems the Mosque are a breeding ground for influence! The politically correctness is choking the life out of this country.It does not leave me with a warm & fuzzy feeling........i2f

A hair off topic there, I2F. Unless in the 2nd part a two-part post you're going to brilliantly tie that back into a discussion of Starbrite Teak Oil. In which case, never mind.

have used this product, easy to use and has a nice finish. It certainly does not last foever and does turn black. It needs to be recoated every six months in San Diego.

Check out Teak Guard. It's water based and if applied properly will last several months. Easy to apply and refresh. Teak stays nice and gold colored. Not slippery. Cleans up easy. Been using it for years and very happy with it.

There is a good article in the May 2009 Practical Sailor, that examines 53 exterior wood finishes after 6 months of exposure. It covers one part varnishes, two part systems, varnish alternatives, teak oil, and teak cleaners, and rates all of them using 7 criterias. In another 6 months there will be another report showing how they all fared...this is worth reading.

Check out Semco for a teak sealer if you really don't want the varnished look...but my suggestion would be 3 coats of Cetol Natural followed by 3 coats of Cetol Gloss, perfect for the toe rail

Maybe I2F has some muslim people looking after their teak and didn't like their work.
