Sold it last week. The P30 is a great boat, my family liked sailing so much that they insisted I get something larger that we can spend weeks at a time on.

It's a bit of a project but completely do able. Strip the varnish off, bleach the wood, seal the wood and re varnish. I have done it in my boat and it looks brand new. Of course, I am assuming that the wood behind it is solid and not rotted.

This isn't my boat, just one I'm considering, so I haven't tried removing this stain yet. The chain plate above leaked at one time, and dripped down the back of the wood in the photo. It is a veneer over ply.

Barkeeper's Friend is cheaper than any "marine" oxalic acid.
A can is about $5 and you can clean a lot of different things with it.
Mix with water - apply - wait - wash off.

Try Wood bleach, AKA oxalic acid

Oxalic Acid Wood Bleach | Real Milk Paint

Re: Stained interior teak

One worry is that that piece of wood is likely a veneered ply.
Heavy sanding is not possible in that case.
did water get in behind that panel?
The stains look to be about the height where objects on the nav table
could chafe it.
Have you tried all the conventional cleaners?
Oxalyic acid (Barkeeper's Friend) is in the one part teak cleaners sold at WM.
It may remove lighten up some of the stains.
Light sanding with a fine grit (#220 or higher), re-oil and/or varnish
and hope for the best.

Or... paint it white!

Re: Stained interior teak

good question, you can always try a teak cleaning kit, I used the one by aurora and my teak came out real nice
not sure what it will do to a water stain though
good luck
