Hi guys,

I have have a slight problem with my bosses decks :eek: !!Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

I have recently joined a 50m 1930's classic motor yacht based in France.
The previous deck crew had left a generator on the aft deck leaking diesel
onto the teak for a few months. Now the teak has a nasty stain right beside
the owners entrance on the aft deck. I have tried two step teak cleaner to
remove the stain and also oxalic acid with no joy. Apart from sanding down the
deck do you have any ideas on how this stain can be removed??:confused:

Thank you!!:D

Varnisha u are now officially my goddess!!!

Thats great advice. I have been told bits and pieces of what u have told me but by far that is the best explanation i have ever had on teck maintenance.
I did have a drink with a fellow that owns a company that imports a high percentage of teak for the yachting industry into europe and he told me you should only use chemicals on the derck maybe once a year best thing to do is just scrub down with saltwater using.....a white scotch pad!!
I do have another question..... In the yachting world(white boats i mean) its common to use 2 step teak cleaner(acid-alkaline) with a brown scotch pad that tends to be really rough. So many yachts tend to do this 2-3 times a season!! What do u think of using these products??

Thanks so much for your help guys!!!
