I called a local paint shop and they said Cabot's Austrialian Timber
Oil is superior to any of the Teak Oils (including cabot's.) They
claim it will last twice as long as Cabot's Teak Oil.
I also looked into Sikkens Teak Oil - $30 a quart!!!
Nope, but I grew up on boats, and spent every summer of my life cleaning and
polishing teak. It's one of the reasons I don't own a boat. :)
Go to a boat store and get some marine teak cleaner followed buy a lot of
teak oil. It's an easy, albeit tedious process to clean and oil the teak
each year, but it's much better to clean it annually (if you don't like the
gray, which I don't) than varnish it, imho.
www.boatus.com has a good guide for how to look after your teak. It's
oriented around boating purposes, but the information should be applicable.
