I power washed the teak, now what?

Postby clonjers » Fri Jun 22, 2007 12:22 pm

I knew before I started that power washing is not the best for the teak as the high-pressure water removes the soft grain leaving the wood serface very rough.

I have done this a few times in the last 30 years, this time it seens to have really removed more of the soft grain.

Is there some kind of sanding filler/sealer product I can apply that I can then sasnd and varnish over? Also it would be nice if it did not leave a slippery surface on the parts of the deck I don't want to varnish?

Saved me a very sore back and knees by cleaning it this way, and evern though the decks are 30 years old it still looks pretty good.

Thanks for any help you could give me.

Some Refinishing Products

Postby boatpride » Tue Sep 30, 2008 6:43 am

Hi Clonjers,

reading through your post reminded me of a page i wrote regarding generic products and sealants for decking and wood on board. It covers a range of explanations of the products, but no specific recommendations for brands.

Many products share similar properties so brands are not always crucial, it's what's in the tin rather than on the tin that's important. Have a look at this page http://www.boatpride.com/teak-refinishing.html

Best Wishes

Chris

The decks on JS had been pressure washed for a number of year when we bought her & looked dreadfull, I took the risk & GENTLY cut them back with a power plane before sanding with 80 then 120 grit DA sander. Have a look at the pics.

I should have added that we now keep them clean using mild oxalic acid & a gentle scrub accross the grain.

Hi Mike, my decks (HC Christina 40) are 25 years old and suffer from the same problem of too much jetting. Did you also have the problem of the deck screw heads starting to show? Did you screw them in further? Thanks. Ray

Fortunately I've only one screw head that's showing, I'm going to remove it and either bore the hole slightly deeper, use a shorter screw and plug over it or just plug the hole, there's more than sufficient depth to bore slightly deeper and re-plug.

Ray,

Where is Lionheart now, I was working in Royal Quays last week and were talking about her as that's where I last saw her. Last I heard she was in Ipswitch?

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the reply, most useful info. Yes she is still in Ipswich awaiting various jobs completion, genny, decks etc. How do you know of her? Ray.

Hi Ray,

She was in Royal Quays Newcastle when we were in there having our new spray hood fitted, had a look round her, looked to be in very good condition, totally different to the traditional HC. Strangely I was working there last week and was speaking to the manager of the brokerage, her name was mentioned as he is looking for a Hans Christian in the near future, we both wondered if she was still in Ipswitch.

Oh well I was also looking and I found her, she is in very good condition and has many blue water items which is what I was after. I am sure she's not a one off as I've seen at least one advertised in the USA but there can't be many Christina's. I really like the look of her and can't wait to get to sea. The association is a good thing to belong to. Thanks for your help I hope I can help someone else one day.

Happy sailing
