I stripped all of the failing cetol last spring and recoated with Honey Teak. I had tons of trouble with bubbles forming as soon as the sun would hit wet honey teak......it was a real nightmare!

Bingo. Wood Shield Exterior Marine and Spar Varnish. Lays better than Epifanes, dries faster, can be hotcoated without complaint and lasts longer. They have discontinued gallon size cans, but it is still available in quarts, although maybe not for much longer- problems with the VOC content.

I pulled all the wood (inside and out) off the boat this weekend and WAS thinking of refinishing it with poly. After reading several opinions and searching the internet, I've decided to go with the old Navy guy and try the oil route..

I have already sanded and wooled all the wood and now all I need to do is to start oiling. I'm probably going to use Tung oil since I've never seen teak oil, but I'll look at the big box store down the road.

I'm throwing out the old plywood/Formica bulkheads and table and was thinking of using either birch plywood with molding or using some scrap red oak I salvaged. These I WILL refinish with poly, however I was wondering if anyone saw any problems using birch or oak inside the boat.

Please continue the oil, honey teak, leave it the *#$$ alone thread.

Not all tung oil is created equally. The type I have used is Jasco Tung Oil and although it is marketed (as are many other tung oils) as a tung oil is actually considered a "wipe on varnish". It would be wise to do your homework before deciding on a tung oil.

It was inside a white poly greenhouse, that had a coat of latex paint on the exterior. The suns rays where still strong enough to heat the teak and cause it to "gas". I don't know how someone without cover could varnish an entire boat without it being exposed to the sun?

Red oak rots and shouldn't be used on boats. White oak is used on boats.

Well, I went with your advice and used teak oil on the exterior wood. I have to say it looks AWESOME. I can't wait to re-install it on the boat. I'll post some pictures when it is done.

I do have some white oak and plan to make a new tiller out of it. When not in use it will have a cover on it and I plan to poly it pretty heavy.

Cetol

I used Cetol on my old boat for years and it always failed. Now I use it on Idora (it was already there). It is also failing in this case. I simply intend to continue fixing it. Sanding and scraping and sanding and scraping........I just can't stop. Don't forget bleaching and washing and washing and bleaching....... Oh there is oil on the cockpit seats and it is failing too but I digress. Ohh the humanity.

We went "grey" with our teak. I thought the only time you varnished your teak was just before you put your boat up for sale....
