      Comments about Sikkens Cetol Marine:

      I bought a boat with gray weathered teak and figured it was time to give her some love!

      After a good sanding to get the ridged out and the gray off, I simply wiped the wood down with a damp cloth. After letting the wood dry thoroughly it was time to apply the first coat! The cetol goes on easily, and blends well making it easy to get an even coat. Make sure to tape up around the edges! Stray drops cleaned up without too much hassle with a little water and elbow grease. Alcohol or thinners might work better but didnt spill enough to warrant it. The hardest part is waiting 24 hours to put on the next coat because we had fun slapping it on! We used 2 coats of marine and 2 coats of gloss.

            Comments about Sikkens Cetol Marine:

            I applied Sikkens Cetol Marine to a well weathered wooden deck. It had been treated, and linseed oil mix or commercial wood preserative had been applied, but none for several years. I can not, yet, speak to its durability. However, as to its application and immediate appearence, the result has been excellent. The first coat was applied on a very windy day, but the wind did not cause any problems. The viscosity is excellent. The varnish clings to the brush, yet spreads smoothly. It also readily sinks into cracks. It was a few days before I got to the second coat application, and I was able to see the good water proofing effect after just one coat. I anticipate a good, long lasting effect after the recommended three coats.

                        See my review of the companion product, Cetol Marine Gloss.

                        This is the required undercoating for the Cetol Marine Gloss. It does contain pigment that will darken the golden color of your wood, so if you are concerned about that issue, check first on a donor piece of wood. They do sell a clear or near clear version of this product, but I wanted this one because it will keep UV light off the wood and keep the wood from changing color.

                        Great product line, far superior to regular varnishes or other synthetics, in my opinion.

                              Goes on easily and lasts four to five years before needing renewal coats on my mahogany and other outdoor wood furniture. Sikkens Cetol Marine has kept my furniture looking new for almost 20 years!
                              Also makes removal of accumulateddirt and pollen very easy with Endust or Pledge.

                                  Almost 20 years ago we bought a mahogany picnic table and benches, chaise, adirondack chair, etc. This product, recommended by a boating friend, has enhanced the color subtly and protected the furniture for all these years, needing a light sanding and reapplication about every 5 to eight years. It goes on easily, dries fast, and leaves a beautiful, easy to clean satin finish. I have only used one or two coats, not the recommended three (I'm a little lazy), or the finish would probably have lasted much longer. It is expensive but worth every penny! Works just as well with our furniture made of other exotic hardwoods.

                                    I have used Marine Cetol on my trawler in Florida for years but have recently moved to the North Country in NY State. My recent project includes a hot-tub room in a 3 season enclosed porch with walls and ceiling in tongue and groove white cedar. Marine Cetol has given the room an aged and lodge-like look that we were wanting. It will also add protection from the high humidity from hot-tub use.
