Hi All, I've read with great interest the threads on treatment (or non treatment) of teak
decks and topsides, but am still uncertain as to my own best course of action. I've recently purchased a teak
Van de Stadt, whose decks have gone beyond the soft brushing across the grain treatment, and have elements of black and green staining. I've investigated products like the Onward Trading teak renewal 3 pack which is an acid/neutraliser/sealer, looked at Lignol teak oil
and Deks Olje and I've seen some teak oils create the need for constant maintenance
(not lasting a season before being back to square one or beyond) - the deck
teak is three quarter inch thick and could stand some sanding/brushing, but would that open the loose fibres of the wood and cause more trouble eventually? Personally, I'd be in favour of regular soft brushing across the grain to keep the pink/white dry effect you see on superyachts, but that doesn't get red of the present stainings. Any advice greatly appreciated! Fair winds!
