RE: Painting Over Teak

Not sure if it will work but based on years of residential painting experience and the oily nature of teak, your success will be in the primer you use. First wipe down the teak with alcohol or laquer thinner to remove surface oils and sand with120 grit. I would then use a shellac based primer like BIN or Kills. I prefer a good oil based paint myself for exterior use so any good marine grade enamel should work fine.
Just a suggestion.
