After years of weather on the Chesapeake the teak on this boat has changed. The old varnish has failed and needs the be removed. After that I clean the teak to remove the oxidation and dirt. This makes the teak ready for a old system that I have mastered over the years. This system is a oil based varnish that doesn’t peal or crack. For this project I’m only doing the second step, oiling the the wood which rejuvenates the wood and repels water basically the wood will be ready for the third step varnishing. The photos here show the teak after the old varnish has been removed and the cleaned. By the way the linseed oil soap I make will achieve this result.
