Re: teak decks - how much work are they really?
keep them clean, soft bristle brush on broomstick, a harder brush, hand size
use a decent oil if that satisfies your desire for color, or let them naturally grey.
repair any issues, promptly
do not use silicone based stuff on them
careful with harsh cleaners and bleaches
NO pressure washing - ever
use deck mounts to secure spinnaker poles, hooks, etc
contact HR for what they use on the show boats and advertising
I did maintenance for a couple of owners.
