Fig 1: Teak deck after the removal of many layers of paint.
Fig 2: An application of a very common "oil" product was recommended to bring out the grain of the wood and protect it. Four coats were applied, it was beautiful but did it last!
These photos were sent to me by a man who bought a 1976 Trojan with a beautiful teak deck. When the vessel was purchased the deck was painted and many hours were spent removing this. This was the result (fig 3), one season later after the application of an "OIL". More sanding is now required, and a new topcoat will have to be applied. The unique formulation of CPES when used as a primer bonds paints and varnish to oily woods such as teak.
