I am refinishing various pieces of teak on my cd this winter and am using Cetol Natural Teak finish on the exterior, but am also refinishing my interior cockpit step/box and the inside of the sliding door. I am trying to match the color of the rest of my interior which is a darker, more reddish color.
Does anyone know what kind of finish was used on the interiors of our CD's and were they all the same? As far as I know mine is original and has not been redone.

I seem to remember reading in the manual that the interiors were just oiled. Could that be all they used?

Thanks,
John

I used Howards Restore A Finish - Mahagony. I removed all interior trim, cleaned, sanded then Howards Product. Easy to apply. Comes out great. I will be posting before and after images soon. My interior was in need of restoration and thankfully no one before me made the attempt to refinish.

John: I also completely re finished the interior (floors, bulkheads, doors and replaced the head liner) last year. The orginal finish was dry and a Porter Cable orbital sander (80 & 120 grit) quickly got down to new wood. Hand sanding and a cabinet scraper took care of the hard to get at spots. Some areas were water stained, bleached or dirty and I used Minwax's Cherrywood Gel Stain #607 to restore the color. The color on bulkheads did not need touching up (after sanding) and two coats of varnish completed the job. I prefer varnish because it is so easy to clean and mold cannot get into the finish. Whatever you do you will be thrilled with your brand new interior. Larry
