Teak wood on a boat can be a real hassle to maintain.
All marine products from most paint stores will create
a high maintenance surface. The photos below show how we
scrubbed the dirt accumulated over the season off and then
applied a coat of the organic boiled linseed oil to protect
the wood. In the spring we may want to have the wood thoroughly
cleaned to get ready for the season with the organic linseed
oil soap depending how well the boat has been protected
over the winter. Organic linseed
oil, organic linseed
oil varnish, organic linseed
oil soap and the organic linseed
oil wax are excellent marine products. They are completely
safe for the environment, human contact and last much longer
than any petroleum product.
Apply the linseed oil soap directly on the wood surface. Activate the soap with a few drops of water. Scrub with a stiff deck brush then rinse with a garden hose. No power washing.
