Where's the Teak ?

Hello everyone this is going to be my 1st original thread all others have been at the expense of others and I apologise for changing the direction of YOUR threads so ..I started working on my teak and the boat has only a little on the deck so I used oil ..not a big deal ..now Im below deck and man there is a lot of teak and it is not very bright so Im thinking I dont want to tackle It and was hoping someone out in the ether could direct me toward some place south of Fla. where I might find someone that could do it for me at a resonable price..Im heading toward the Panama Canal and any where between the Bahamas, Dominacan Republic ,Haiti,Jamaica,Mexico and points farther south of Mexico would be acceptable Thank you ZEE for the help and hope I post this in the right place.DVC

Re: Where's the Teak?

You want to strip it and revarnish it or add a few coats? This is a big difference in labor costs.

Re: Where's the Teak?

i leave my interior teak alone as is a huge mayhem to redo interior teak finishes.
when i clean it i use orange oil or lemon oil to do the job..... shines it up and smells awesome. but refinishing--i would rather sell boat first....

That's what I decided to do too. The orange oil worked great.
