When my mast
came down last year, it took out the teak
fiddle rails along with it.
After I rebuilt it all, I had the same problem - it didn't look original enough.
All I did was scrub it with a stiff brush and Barkeepers cleanser. After one season in the weather
, it looks old & worn out like the rest of the boat. All I do is wash with seawater and barkeepers for the tough stuff and a scotch bright pad -- never a stiff brush! (unless you like lots of raised grain) I dont oil
anything except spars. I spray.. all the wood with antifreeze
( etheylene glycol) especially the water
ways, places where mold
is likely to grow. Works great! You wont find much green slime on my boat. Plane old cheap
