Neglecting the teak on your boat? It's not too late to restore the relationship
More than a cut above, teak is the best of the boatbuilding woods, and for good reason. It can be varnished to a lustrous finish, oiled or left to weather to a silver-gray. It is virtually impervious to waterborne pests, such as the teredo worm, and will last years with practically no maintenance.

The twin 200-hp direct-fuel-injected 2-strokes on Wally Szeezil's Contender 27 have logged 900 hours in their nine-year lifespan. Well-maintained 2-strokes are capable of running longer, but Szeezil's starboard engine began faltering intermittently last year, which got him thinking that he may soon have to repower his 2001 center console.
