I’m about two days late on my reply. I’m seeing the same “dulling” and “grey” returning after three applications. I was going to ask if more will fulfill my teak dream... dang! I’m going to keep hitting it with oil as it probably was never treated right. Per suggestions above I will go with the mixture once my 1/4 gallon of oil is gone.

Should have listened to the experts! You all are awesome, sometimes we live and learn (now I guess with a little teak oil on the interior).

My '93 Teak Looks New - Here is my process

I bought my '93 ProStar 205 new and actually enjoy making the teak look great as it is a distinctive feature. Here is the process I use.

When using the linseed/mineral spirits do you still sand the teak?

I just used the starbrite three step teak cleaning and oil process with great results. I did sand after the cleaner/brightener and then brushed on three coats of team oil while in the sun. I didn't wipe of the excess, but after a few minutes of sitting in the sun I would even out the oil with the brush. don't like using a terry cloth rag or anything like that because of the lint left over and it tends to stick to the wood. Once dry, I would add the next oil coat.

I was a teak oil guy for many years and religiously applied to keep my platform in top shape. When I started leaving my boat on a lift with the platform exposed to the sun each day I made the switch to a basic deck stain made by FLOOD. It s a simple clear stain that brushes on and gives my platform the look of a team oiled platform without the oily residue and I did not touch my platform for 2 years except to touch up the occasional edge wear from getting in and out.
Sorry I do not have pics but it looks the exact same as the oiled photos in this thread and does not fade or darken with exposure.

I just had my platform redone. All new wood in places. Better than new. I found the 3 step Star Brite to be the best. Just go light on the oil and let it soak in after wiping it down. If you go heavy, it will be tacky a while. The linseed oil procedure is a cheaper way to go, but also is great. The guy who fixed my platform is a master wood worker, and mine was in bad shape. It looks perfect.
