I've found an excellent product to clean and maintain the interior wood. Check out Howard Restore-a-Finish on the web. Since oil tends to darken the wood over time, this product cleans and covers minor scratches with out changing the color of the wood. I found this product through a recommendation on the Cape Dory Sailboat owners website. Has anyone else found a product they like?

Thanks,

I have been looking for something as I have some scratches, discoloration, etc.
I have tried cleaning with Murphys, wiping with furniture oils, etc. with no real improvement.
It would be great to just strip and refinish the whole interior, but I can only imagine what a huge job it would be.

Which color are you using? I see they offer it in a wide variety of choices.

Thanks,
John

There is a great thread on the capedory.org site (CDSOA) about cabin teak and holly. here is the long url:

here is another thread about replacing the deck with something other than teak and holly:

Thankfully, the interior of my new 1989 FB had been totally neglected by the
previous owner. The surfaces were uncontaminated (unknown finishes &oils?)and ready for renewel. I used Acetone or Lacquer thinner to spot clean unknow gunk. Using a Porter Cable orbital sander and light hand sanding, I made all the surfaces ready for varnish. I used Minwax cherry PASTE stain for touch ups and blending. For worn down "holly" at the door, I taped off the lines and sprayed on new "holly" and varnished over. You can't tell the difference.
IMHO, I think varnish is superior to oil for looks and cleanability and some owners may be looking at the interior and thinking "I'll just cover up this mess with a new coat of oil". You will be amazed at how well sandpaper can clean up that teak veneer, if the wood pores are not totally clogged up with crud. I expiremented on the inside of the head door and the sole (hand sand only) below the cabin table. If your sanding produces dust, you are on your way to a beautfull, maintenance free interior.

For cleaning a lot of oiled teak, say a complete interior, Murphy's Oil Soap, mixed with water as recommended and applied with a sponge, possibly a soft scrubbing pad, and a lot of elbow grease, works well.

For smaller areas try the new "Mr. Clean Magic Eraser" household cleaning pads. They work really well on oiled teak (and a lot of other things, like white formica counter tops). Available at all Supermarkets. West Marine has a re-branded, "marine" version for a much higher price. Looks like it all came from the same factory.

Both the Magic Eraser and Murphy's Oil Soap not only remove oil and dirt from teak, they take oil out, so you'll have to re-finish when done.
