Redoing teak on the Lake Erie

Does anyone have any recommendations for a company or someone that redoes teak in the Lake Erie area. The boat that needs work is in the Port Clinton, OH area.

Thanks

Re: Redoing teak on the Lake Erie

I would suggest you contact Catawba Moorings Marina in Port Clinton Ohio. I docked my boat there for quite a few years and there was a gentleman who docked his sailboat there that was a marine woodworker. I can picture him and his boat but I don't recall the name. If not him I'm sure the folks at the Moorings will know and be able to recommend someone in the area.

Make it look new/good again.

I'm pretty sure that it needs to be stripped &/or sanded before new sealer/stain is applied. Mrs. Strypes and I were thinking about tackling it ourselves but we're running out of time and if it doesn't cost too much to hire a professional to do it and do it right, we figure why not?! I don't mind supporting local businesses!

We've heard from other do it yourself boaters many different ways of how to do it ourselves as well as the sales associates at West Marine and other Brick and Mortar stores. We can't seem to get a definitive answer on what the correct process is.

There was a company that we've seen at a couple of different boat shows(Cedar Point & Cleveland), but we never got to speak with them directly, just some kid that they had sitting at their booth and he wasn't sure on cost or the process. I can't remember the name of said company.

Thanks!

Re: Redoing teak on the Lake Erie

Should you decide to tackle it yourself I recommend stripping with Citristrip (hardware store). How you choose to refinish is somewhat like religion. Some do a half dozen coats of varnish, some do teak oil, others the fake varnish like Cetol.

I've been using a teak oil with tint.

I would think paying someone to do a traditional varnish would be expensive because it's very time consuming.
