I keep the teak clean and let it go grey except for a few pieces of trim that I keep covered in Cetol.
With an early Marine Trader it's the only way to stay sane.

My wife bought the Eagle because of the teak decks, rails trim and the teak interior. She figured it would keep me busy. Actually I do enjoy doing the bright work a couple of hours a day time permitting. However we do live on it so its like maintaining a house. Also if its maintained a light sanding and varnishing I'd required. Its the teak swim step and long rub rail that takes the most time and work. Its the calking that usually fails, not the varnish, so in stead of caulking been using epoxy instead, and epoxy for problem areas.

However the interior had to much teak and made the hall and staterooms dark, so we wall papered the hall and one wall in the staterooms, so if in the future the teak could be brought back. The Eagle does get a lot of attention and complements. However I would not want any more teak.

I like a little exterior teak. Unfortunately th PO of The Promise was merciless over the years sanding, and ruined most of it.

@Marty, where did you source those stainless side-rails?

Wood belongs in the interior. Don't have the energy to work on exterior wood nor want to pay someone else to maintain it. Third-person maintenance bills are sufficient high, thank you.
