Another user of Deks Olje - both #1 and #2 (you can stop at #1 for a flat finish if required).

Removed Cetol which as many others have noted is a bit orange for my liking. It also was laid on pretty thick on my boat.

It is 2.5 years with Deks Olje. By the end of the first 12 months left exposed summer and winter the winter rain had really taken a toll and needed lots of work in the spring. I had shorted the recommended top coats and only did 2 - so perhaps little surprise it wore off in places. After doing a better job (!) and having a rain cover the next 12 months still look great with minimal touchup required - and those from chips and bangs.

The #2 finish is not as good as varnish but better IMHO than Cetol.
