Teak, Danish, Linseed, or what?

Which oil for teak
Posted: 17 Oct 2021 - By: Geoff Crowley

This winter I'm going to do a lot more oiling of the internal teak on my R32 Contender.

I've been recently making a lot of oars and paddles and used Danish Oil.

I now wonder what really is the difference? Some list their components, and typically they're  linseed, boiled linseed, Tung oil, and sometimes some solvents.

Any experiences that suggest one being so much better than another?

How about for external teak?
