Squidd 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...

Bare, scrubbed wood looks O/K for little work.

Oil looks better for more work.

Varnish looks the best for the most work.

Cetol falls in between oil & varnish for both looks and work.

All IMHO of course.

mitiempo 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.

Squidd Ahhh.. That also covers my next question, what do I do on interior teak..

Sabreman Cetol.
