I actually have not had the occasion to have to have teak
decks, and their upkeep, in a long time. So I am unaware of their maintenance
issues/materials in this modern day.
But I was thinking back to a significant number of years ago when an old captain
on a nice Trumpy classic motoryacht
told me of his method of upkeep. I can only remember he telling me that he did NOT utilize those expensive oils that were sold thru the marine
stores,...but rather he utilized some 'blend' of automotive oils. I think one of them was some sort of transmission
Any old captains out there with some knowledge of such??
