Thanks! Used the StarBrite 3-step system. I did steps 1 and 2 twice over a couple of weeks period and then put 6 coats of their teak oil on it. The first two coats were soaked up really quick and didn't even really make a difference. The last 4 I followed the advice on here and put a coat on and then let it bake in the sun. I'm really pleased but I'm curious how long it will last and look this good!

You done good!! That's the system I use as well. Many make their own "brew" as well, and I gotta say they too look really great. I started with the StarBrite and never switched because mine really lasts for me. The boat sits on a lift under a canopy, but the teak is in the sun all season. I only do a touch up (2 coats of oil only) over winter, and am good to go in the spring.
Keep up the good work, looks great.

I know to some it's sacrilege to even consider putting anything other than oil on platforms, but does anyone have any experience with the Honey Teak system? It's a two step acrylic urethane enamel I have been reading some sail forums and people swear by it even though it's pricey.

I think I read somewhere that a urethane or varnish type finish will have a tendency to flake and peel after some time. If that's true, that would be a bear to get back to bare wood and go old school.

It WILL flake...keep it classy and invest a little time and elbow grease each season. Cold beer opportunity awaits...

I love the 3 step starbright package for teak. However, I skip the third and got with the mix.
