I love these threads. What to use on teak (or not to use) is like anchors, religion, and politics.

Let the games continue!

I got a boat where the guy wanted Starbright Tropical Teak Natural light , looks very nice, takes me about 4 hrs when needed to brush & rag the foredeck, side decks, sundeck & flybridge of a 45 footer.

Me, I have no teak deck but I use cetrol on everything else; you can work enough clear coat to get a really nice shine on stuff like handhold, bulwarks caprails bowsprits, hatches, dorade boxes etc,etc,

Everything that would be under wet foot gets just the base color coat, (x3)no gloss, I've had no issues as long as footwear with good deck soles are used

Who the heck wears shoes on a sail boat? That's just crazy talk, Pappy.

A related question for y'all -- I left my can of Cetol in the boat over the winter, do you think the stuff is still good to use this spring? (Boat is in MA, so we've had the usual freeze/thaw New England winter here.)

While we use Cetol Light Teak and Clear Coat for "brightwork", for the teak on the seats and deck in our cockpit we have been using:



In Florida this needs be renewed annually but it is easy to do and turns out very nice looking and the non-skid properties of the decking are not compromised.

As for cleaning the teak, we used to use the Starbrigh Teak Cleaner kits but they are unnecessarily costly. What I have found works just as well for cleaning is a product known as "Greased Lightening" from Home Depot. After dampening the wood, spray this material on and allow it to sit for a few minutes and then give the teak a rub down (across the grain) with a Scotch scrubing pad and then rinse thoroughly with fresh water. To lighten the wood, a wash-down with a mild solution of Oxylic Acid and water will do the trick but we have not found this necessary. I finish up the surface prep with a mild scuffing using 320 grit sand paper although it's really not necessary but I do like the smoother grain. Before applying the Sealer I wipe down the wood with piece of cheese cloth mositened with 90% Alcohol which removes any dust/dirt remaining and dries quickly without raising the grain.

FWIW...

It should be fine if the can was well sealed and it didn't get exposed to too much air.

Generally, the stuff will thicken if left too long in a partially filled can. You will notice it with application, harder to spread, goes on a bit too heavy. Unfortunately Sikkens recommends against thinning it with anything, so if it seems heavy and you are beginning a project large enough to make the cost of a new can seem trivial, don't gamble.

The clutz that need to run around the boat from time to time and stub their toes on anything and everything in other words " ME ", but I talking sanuks and they're not really a shoe type shoe, more of a sandal, but with a good deck sole to them...............hard to find now, certain board shops carry them though

I find that a thin layer of cetol will harden on top leaving the rest of the cetol in good shape, just run a blade around the inside of the can and you can remove the hardened stuff out in one piece, lightly stir ( very lightly ) and go to work
