Re: Cetol Natural teak vs one part vs two part varnish

The modern two-part coatings, such as Perfection Plus, are much more durable. However, they are unbelievably hard to remove, if you find you must. BTDT. 40 grit on a random orbital would chew through pads within inches. Hard stuff. It's also unbelievably toxic, when curing and outgassing. A serious organic filter mask is an absolute must.

I ultimately went with Epiphanes spar varnish on my cockpit table. 10 coats. Made a winter project of it. Top coat every two years now. It stays covered when off the boat and we use place mats to avoid scuffing. Wife actually sewed a custom table cloth too.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
