Spent the weekend bringing the teak back to that ‘new’ look. Used products from a company called Onward Trading who supplied the active cleaner and neutraliser (stage one and two) and a coloured sealant from Semco.

Took a lot longer than I thought it would given that we don’t have a full teak deck, just the cockpit, toe rail and coach roof.

We like the golden honey colour while others like the aged silver look however the ‘teak oil’ we used last year must have contained linseed oil as the teak started to go black.

Put a page with pics on the website http://www.yachtconosur.com/teak_treatment.html

It does what is says on the tin and we are really pleased with the result.

black means  dirty before oil applied.  i use sea water , 3 m pad(green) and  then teak oil. linseed oil should not make teak go black--dirt WILL.....i spend 6 hours per YEAR on my teak  finishing--i donot spend much m0ney on it-- grey means the teak is deteriorating-- the silver powder is your teak going away into the wind...i have more time to sail and more money to spend on tacos here in manana land........oil shoild not be put on th edeck-- that needs sea water daily or will shrink into  leakiness.  have fun and smooth sailing.....

Just finished refinishing the teak on my endeavour 37. Used cetol.  Strange the amount of teak seems to grow as you go along. Anyway it looks good  and ready for the season.
