Trying my first picture post...

This is what I started with:

The only thing I was not happy with when I bought my boat.

Took about two weeks to get it clean enough for me.

I put a few more coats of oil on it after this and hung it in the garage. I'll probably do it all again before putting it back on the boat this spring.

I have some lake water residue / scum on my tracking fins, propeller, strut and rudder. I was wondering what different product(s) everyone uses on their boat for this sort of cleaning problem ? I have a OJ 3 blade Nibral propeller. I do not want to try to clean these with to strong of a chemical. Thanks for any help on this topic.:)

If you do a search on teak... You will find more information on refinishing than you could ever imagine;)

Cool...I'll give it a shot...yours looks great, but mine was in a little worse shape when I started. I think my arms are going to fall off from sanding...even with an electric sander.

before you sand do several rounds of teak cleaner and teak brightener...lightly sand after that and start the oil sand oil sand routine

Looks great! You're lucky, at least you didn't have to strip polyurethane off of the teak before you could clean and sand and apply oil and sand and oil and sand and oil and sand and oil and sand and oil and oil.

I've been following Harold's process, but I'm at about 3 - 4 coats with wet sanding between, and am noticing that it's beginning to get gummy. Have I reached the maximum with the wood not being able to absorb any more?

It's not about absorbing into the wood because it will only take so much oil, it is getting gummy because you are not allowing it to dry enough between coats and you are applying too much oil for each coat. You are getting impatient, APPLY IT THIN and LET IT DRY! Nuff said!
