I had a boat with "some" exterior teak. I said "never again" and then bought a plastic bottle sailboat. Never looked back. One of the criterion for a power boat was no exterior teak. I am busy, lazy, and have a bad back. I didn't want to spend my off days sanding, varnishing, or oiling.

Larry, what were your steps in painting the teak? I'm redoing the fore-deck on our boat & am over the teak, though, there will still be lots. How did you prep the wood? Thanks Tonto

Sanded to prep with the final sanding using 220 grit. Wiped down with acetone to remove any oils. Primed with Interlux Bitghtsides Pre-Kote primer and sanded again with 320 grit. Then 2-3 coats of Interlux Brightside 1-part. Sanding in between coats as needed. I thin the paint using Interlux 333. It helps the paint flow and to keep a wet edge when brushing.

I prefer the one part over a two part if for nothing else the ease of touch up and application. It's not as durable as the 2 part but it's pretty forgiving.

Thanks Larry - way to much wood. Re-caulking the raised fore-deck. Good grief - what a process. Going to buy a good paintbrush or 9

That, and so many have said do the varnish as an under-layer to facilitate return to wood grain... with that in mind I might just stop at the varnish layer...

BTW... here is my existing condition...

An alternative to paint is FG itself.

This is a friend's boat in Alaska. He's a good layup man and after he removed his cap rails he overlayed the two hull pieces together. Then painted grey.
I also like his anchor mounting and the 65lb Forfjord fit perfectly. Last I heard he planed to replace it w a Claw.
