Brightwork Maintenance

Postby AllanY » Sun Jul 11, 2010 6:28 am

From looking at various forums the concensus seems to be Cetol for use on teak

Which Cetol product is the best to use to get colour back into the teak and give me a gloss finish on cap rails and window frames externally??

Does Cetol have to be sanded off completely or can a light sand do before overcoating it??

Thanks for the link Chuck. The boat looks good. I just hope I can get mine looking as good.
Unfortunately those Cetol items you used are not available here in OZ however I have emailed the Aust agents for their input so i'll see what they come back with

Good luck Allan, I am sure there must be something similar in your area. You might consider doing some dock walking on the weekends and talk with other owners in your area that have some good looking brightwork. Chuck
