A little behind the ball here , I am new to the group.
I use McClosky''s "Man-O-War" Spar varnish on our 50 foot wooden ketch. It looks great on teak especially. I have used the interlux stuff but find the Man-O-War to have a better, traditional (somewhat red) color. I think it spreads and levels out in fewer coats than the interlux. And it is under 20 bucks /quart. Really, I think you can have "Perfect" varnish with most any product provided you have an excellent first few thinned coats and many gloss coats on the top. When we bought our boat to restore, we sanded everything to bare wood, then put on 8 coats. We have never been sorry for all the work.
Go2Marine.com sells the Man-O-War stuff.
