  4. Teak oil or brywax is much the same I have brought both they are kind of a varnish , need time to dry , befor recoating if you use housing oil you will be doing it again soon , I binned the timber rails and had them made in stainless and there lies the end of the subject most of the housing oils can’t handle the weather , sail , and most of all teak hates foreign oils most of the time they go black after oiled in time
