Erik,

I've only used Watco exterior grade oils. I've used both their walnut rubbing stain to darken my ash rails and the Exterior finish oil to provide the protection. It builds up nicely and gives a quality finish. I've found the stuff at the local home center for a couple bucks less than at the canoe/outdoor retailers that I'd have to drive a couple hours to. You also can commonly find it at your local marine supply store. Some folks like the danish made Deks Olje which is available at marine stores, or Mad River Canoes Gunnel Guard. Both seem to give favorable results too.

PK

I used Scandinavian Tung Oil made by Behr,avalible at Home depot and Rona.
Used it on my gunwales,decks,seat and thwarts.
Easy to apply.Looks great.

Dave, does this have UV inhibitors? does it produce a nice water repellant surface?

Thanks

Pressure treating works well however,instead of pumping up to 40 psi, try to create a vacuum to suck the moisture out of the wood cells and then flood the chamber with the oil of choice. Warm the oil first.
