Re: Passport 40 1984 teak deck
Every two years ... quick power-buffing with 3M Perfect-it.
Intervening years, scuff up with Scotch Brite pad (100 grit), and quick lay down thick 'flow-out' coat of 'clear' overcoat .... and 'remedy' of any lifting, etc. at scarfs, etc.
Once you get a high build up of 'clear' just power buff.
Otherwise, dutiful quick repair of nicks & dings, etc. ... as is needed for 'any' coating to prevent major repairs.
With Honey Teak, the colder the ambient the better the 'flow out'. ... but with HT the 'learning curve' is quite steep.
Like most 'coatings' the flatter you get it during the 'finishing' the longer it will last.
