Silver Teak

Hello all,

i have a Hans Christian 48T - teak central

Anyway, I am stripping the external teak cap rail and was wondering if I just let it silver and kept is washed in saltwater, would this shorten the life of the teak?


its not bush week!

Re: Silver Teak

seawater is what teak likes best--wash it with salt water and a 3m pad to brighten her up a bit, and if you wish to add oil after it appears dry, the pretty wood will be lovely for a year. oil on dirty wood makes black teak. natural with sea water douches is also good for the wood.
