Do it. I mean really. We did for twelve years. One thing I learned, though, all that teak is a pain. Do it.
Teak is a pain to keep up, but best not varnish it. Holystone it and stain it and leave it as non-skid. And if you buy the boat, I anticipate an invitation to crew it.
My crew will wear black turtlenecks and carry grease guns.
