Chaulking white problems

I have a white chaulked oak "deck" in the salon of my catamaran. Since I hade to varnish the oak when it was layed and after the chaulking, the varnish was on the chaulk also.
First problem was that the varnish was to hard on the chaulk (Sikaflex type), which became sticky...and then very dirty.

I then removed the varnished chaulk to replace if with new...but I wonder if there is any hope in using white chaulk, without the risk of getting it dirty.

Also I wonder if anyone has used any type of varnish over white chaulk, that doesn't make the chaulk sticky, even though it's inside.

Has anyone used white chaulk on teak deck, and keeping it white?

I am just in the decision making if to use white (which looks nicest) or traditional black chaulk.
Your experience could help a lot.
