    better yet why would I want to
    Im staying in today

    I have a Teak floor in a unheated enclosed porch to finish and I think Im just going to look forward to breaking my back on it tomorrow when its a nice steamy 20° out and my space heaters can make a dent in the temp.

    alkali based clear stain as a sealer and tonge oil finish wont like this temp at all either

    cheers

    If I could get the teak in that "just turned grey", nice, even, clean look and stay that way! (somebody will track grit into it, wear ice cleats on it, or comment "what a shame he let the teak weather like that"! All things to make me wanna' turn "Nylex" on 'em. Hai - YA! (dead before they hit the ground)

    No you cannot.....your rubber knee pads will freeze solid. It is freezing here in Knoxville too. A high of about 16* However you can rub teak oil on the floor. But you are correct to stay inside. Stan

    It's raining up here! I took the opportunity to have the boat set indoors ( due for a deep-freeze early next week) - now there's no excuse!
