I used Cetol from West marine as a finish coat. It lasts and stays looking perfect for a whole season, and my boat sits in the water from May to September.

Went with Cetol as well. Happy so far with 1 coat.

Pressure washed it:



Sanded it 400 - 1500 then washed it off and let it dry:

The attached looks really thorough. I must admit I go for a less scientific approach. Stainless steel wire wool (gets into all the nooks and crannies that sandpaper can't) wash down then 2 or 3 coats of teak oil. I don't want the surface too smooth.

If you use sealer and no sand off you will get a painted look. I did this to mine and I think it takes less maintenance over time.. to get a rich look I would use a good teak oil.

When you go to get that off, you'll wish you had listened to some of those here and I do not mean Kyle. He's like Sgt. Schultz...

Another TT member here (clucked maybe?) has a writeup on the Mineral Spirits and Linseed oil.

best on the results. looks good so far

I might not sand it as much as it says to do, it can make it really slick
