Teak Cabin Sole
We''ve epoxied the ends of some of our teak veneer floorboards (Brunzeel, I think, but more than 20 years old, so the ends get worn and water gets in...) but have left the actual floor surface simply varnished for the most part. IMHO that the epoxy will eventually darken and be impossible to remove (like your grandma''s beautiful mahogany furniture that is now black because of the UV getting to the varnish). Varnish can be sanded off pretty easily, but epoxy is a lot harder. As an experiment last season I did replace a small floorboard in the galley area and fully epoxied the edges and faces of it. It may take a few years to see how it turns out, however.
