    I did mention that and good on you that you are happy with the results. A fellow can't go wrong with your process.

    Board looks nice. Good job.

    • Hey quick question for those in the know, maybe WL?

      How does the 75/25 linseed/spirts mixture compare to what Tommy and crew at Teak World use to finish their boards prior to shipment? I bought a new one and spoke with him on the phone, but can't remember what he told me. I need to refinish my original once we get a decent warm stretch and would like to compare with sheen/color from brand new.

      Also, out of curiosity, what would change color-wise if I applied this method to the new board later this season, or at the end of the year?

        Tommy uses a light oil made for teak (teak oil??). I cannot be certain of what kind. I got something from him today and it was not treated but that is OK. I'll use the Linseed / Spirits. What I have found is the Linseed/Spirits is less oily per se' and it lasts a long time. I like it because it does not track back into the boat, get on cloths, or otherwise leave a trail of application. Other oils seem (to me) a bit more evident of the application.

        If I can remember, I'll call him tomorrow and ask.

          Thanks WL!

          Any reason I couldn’t go over the top of the new board with the 75/25 as is new?

            No Sir.

            All good. They will look great. I have done two new ones recently. They turned out just fine. No abrupt changes, etc.

            Just follow my recommended steps to the letter.

              • Starbrite teak cleaner, 80 grit on a DA, teak brightener, light 220 grit, 80/20.

                I've got about 45 minutes of work in this with drying time.

                • I like the second pic. I don't like the dark wood. Lots of pics of dark, shiny wood platforms in this thread. No knock on what others like, but I think that would look silly on my boat.

                    That's unfinished raw teak and wouldn't last a week looking like that in water/sun conditions.
