I've used Cetol products on log homes and trims...
Sikens Cetol 1 and 2-3plus, SRD, HLJ, and the newer Cetol one step products...
Not familiar with the "marine" version, But doesn't it build up after after a couple applications and then "flake" or peel off leaving a huge mess to try to touch up..?
At least that's what I've seen of their exterior products...

Cetol falls in between oil & varnish for both looks and work.
All IMHO of course.

Cetol is the best looking low maintenance exterior finish. Oil collects dirt easily and varnish turns into a career.
For the interior whatever you wish - gloss varnish with the final coats mat finish looks great and will last years inside.

|StormBay||Third vote for Cetol. I just started using their natural teak color and must say it is much more natural looking than their previous colors (not orange at all)|

|msmith10||Agree with Cetol outside. Inside, teak oil or lemon oil is fine.|

Oil.. or Varnish...?
Topside trim work...
Putting on new Cumaru rub rails and grab rails and need to sand and refinish companionway teak ...
Do I want to "oil" my wood with say Australian Timber Oil or Mesmers...for open grain wet look...
Or four coats of varnish...? For glossy hard coat...?
Or just let it all age gray...?
