Ever try this on teak?

http://store.nationalpaintsupply.net/arwoflco.html

I'm ready to try something other than teak oil - leave the boat in for about 6 months straight and the oil is gone in a few weeks.

Any other suggestions? I know this is a hot topic.

Thanks!

Looks familar to Siekkens (sp?) or West Marine's Wood Pro which I use. It's not a varnish, but does last a long time. I had the same issue you did. I'd clean, sand, and oil my teak, but even after many coats of oil it wouldn't stay within a couple of weeks it'd dry out again. (From what I could tell the previous owner never oil the teak so it was a disaster) Used the Wood Pro and the first coat lasted 2 years with only some minor touch ups where the skis slide off the platform, etc... See my photos for a picture. I'll probably have to sand down and redo in a year or two, but it's WAY easier than oil and looks as good with very little work. After using this stuff I'll never go back to oil.

I tried Teakguard this year. See this thread:

http://www.tmcowners.com/teamtalk/sh...ight=teakguard

It's great - not oily and it is supposed to hold up for a year.

You'll have to post the results after a few months with the TeakGuard. I'll be interested to see if it holds up better than the WoodPro I used.

Take some before and after photos of the platform when you do it.

Scott - I think I'm going to take your suggestion of Wood Pro or try the Sikken's again. Your pictures were nice - I have the same boat as you so it gives me a good idea as to what it will look like.

I tried the Sikken's a few years ago but only did one coat. I would try the teakguard but the reading I did about it suggests that imperfections in my teak might produce poor results.

I'll do some before and afters for everyone.

Looking forward to the pictures. I think I put on 3 coats of the Wood Pro as they recommended to get a nice even coverage. Hope it works for you!

I would stay with teak oil, we tried stain, it lasted one outing to the lake! Our teak seems to last...
