I would like to re visit this topic on our forum and to that end I am looking forward to fresh ideas;
I have taken off all our deck teak hand rails and have them inside for finishing over the winter.
Given that there is no such thing as maintenance free varnish, I am reading a lot of conflicting stories on the various products on the market.
Has any one used the non - petroleum " Le Tonkinois Linseed Varnish " ?,
OR should I go with a petroleum based commercial marine product OR should I just leave the teak as is ( raw ) and do a teak oil wipe once or ( twice ? ) a year ? The boat is based out of Ontario Canada.
Any help would be appreciated as this restoration is a major labor undertaking and I don't want to do this again anytime soon .....
Thanks in advance, Frank B.
