Interior Stairs Finish

3 posts in this topic

I stripped the interior stairway for my Island Packet to bare teak.  This sees little outside weather, but gets wear (obviously).  I'd be interested in opinions.  Should I use teak oil, Danish Tung Oil Sealer, or two part urethane I used on the outside teak?  Thanks.

It depends on the finish appearance you're looking for.  The two part urethanes are very durable, more so than teak oil.  Danish Oil Sealers are a no-gloss natural finish.  Again depends on the appearance you like.

If you use a finish like varnish, they will be slippery, raw teak has non-slip characteristics that will make the ladder safer. If you want to finish them so they appear like the rest of the interior you can put clear non-skid tape on them to keep everyone safe.
