Re: East coast Lady Update

Teak oil will tend to collect dirt and darken over time.. the good thing is you can reapply anytime with minimal prep but it's really an interior treatment.

Lots of people like Cetol, lots don't. A good varnish always looks best but is the most maintenance intensive method and takes some skill and practice for a good result.

Teak oil vrs varnish...your choice...both owrk

Teak oil when done right continues to be absorbed by the wood giving it a natural finish. You will need to keep applying once or twice a year.

Varnish will coat the exterior, give you the shine you talked about. Important to get one with a good UV rating as thats what breaks it down. Usually have to apply a couple of coats, but should last a season. Each year you can light sand and reapply. If it starts bubbling or cracking off you need to heat strip and start over.

Both need attention over time. If your C&C is like mine there is minimal teak...back rail...companionway and frame on the outside.

Re: East coast Lady Update

Cetol Natural Teak is a very good choice and rivals varnish in looks. Even more so if topped off with clear Cetol

Cetol......

*shudder*

IMO it's the marine equivalent of aluminum siding and fake shutters.

Yes it is. So is "last place," but neither is a finish to be bragging about.

Sorry, I'm all about the varnish. Properly applied, quality varnish will outlast Cetol with minimal upkeep.

Re: East coast Lady Update

O.k So I sanded and added 2 coats of teak oil. I dont like it? Too dark for one thing and no sheen at all. How can I do the varnish now?
