  I've been doing Teak finishing all season on my Landfall 39 cutter (lots
of wood trim) and using Armada. On the first coat, I add in a little
"Penetrol" to aid in penetration and drying. First coat dries overnight, as
do the second and third coats applied full strength.
  As with Cetol, next year it will be a wipe down with a purple scotch brite
pad and one coat (annual maintenance coat).
  I also get lots of compliments on the finished wood. I think it's the
"plastic Clorox Bottle boat" owners that mention it most. I actually get
strangers coming by my boat and posing for pictures!
  I used Armada on my Alberg 30 while I owned her. Annual maintenance coat
took about two days total (not full days). I always got compliments on her
as well. Traditional designs, maintained reasonably are always beautiful.
