I have untreated teak woodwork on the inside of my sailboat,

This answer was rated:

I have untreated teak woodwork on the inside of my sailboat, which is not varnished, and I was wondering what is an excellent oil or other product to use to give it a rich, more finished look to it. I am looking for something that could be easily wiped on and is not a varnish, but would not leave an oil residue.

Rick :

Tung oil is probably the best option for a boat. It offers some added protection as well as enhancing the finish

Rick :

Tung oil sells under many labels. The only thing you need to look for is that it's pure tung oil. Some products are modified with polymers. Best to avoid those
