Ok, here is the finished product. Starbrite 3 step for 35 bucks, but I think I have enough left over for 2 more times. Approx 10 bucks then. It turned out better than any of my previous efforts. These included linseed oil/ mineral spirits and Watco teak oil from Lowes. I think whatever method you choose, preparation is very important, and ALL of these methods are pretty good.

It looks nice and even....but the pic is pretty dark. Hard to tell. What counts is that YOU are happy with the results. I used the Starbrite too, and am very pleased with the outcome.

Picture is not good. My camera only seems to work in direct sunlight. I am 100% satisfied. After buying the sandpaper and the Starbrite I am in to this about $45 , but have enough for 3 restorations. Pretty good deal. I will post a pic on the boat the next time I take the boat out.

It's that time of year in my boat care regimen. This is no show platform. It will be stepped on, jumped off, and treated like a platform should be treated. Bringing the shine back took less than 15 minutes.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

I'm sure most of the products are of the same quality, but I've always used Watco Teak oil. Watco makes a variety of stains and varnishes for furniture. I've used their product when working and its top notch. Just my 2 cents.

Alright, so I am in the process of redoing my teak. I am fairly certain they used some sort of varnish previously on this teak, but looks like most of it is gone and or I have sanded it off. However, I sanded with 220 and have used the StarBrite Teak Cleaner and Teak brightener, and my teak still looks very dark and stained with too many black/real dark lines. Am I over thinking this? Or...

Do i need to sand more and repeat the cleaner and brightener? Or should i move on to Oil or what? Need some thoughts and help on this! Thanks!

Did you only sand with 220? I started with 80 and did not use the brightener and only used soap and water to clean. I think the 80 grit looked after most the problems.
Picture is a little small but I had the dark lines you refer to and the sanding looked after it for the most part, still had some when i oiled but it looks fine.

Thanks for the response. Was thinking about getting 100 or 150 grit out first and giving it a good once over then 220 and then clean it up again.
