We would like to enlist your help in finding the best products for maritime and boating communities and your job is a simple one… All that we ask is that you share our articles with your friends via Facebook, Twitter, E-mail or word of mouth.

And one more thing… we also ask that, if find guides help to make a buying decision, you shop by clicking on the links we have in each article. If you want to do even more to help then please bookmark this page and use the shop links below for some of your future purchases.

Each time you click on a link from the site and buy a product we recieve a small kickback from the retailer (at no cost to you).

Each product is reccomended after many hours of research, calls to world leading marine experts and sailors who have logged countless hours using the gear on the high seas. We don’t just pick any gear, we only pick the best… and the best way to make this research possible is by clicking on product links.


Amazon Homepage Logo

Because it often has the lowest prices and offers discounted (and fast!) shipping to its Prime members, Amazon has been my favorite retailer for many years. They offer a wide range of marine products but also let you purchase books, tools and countless houshold goods. For this reason we participate in the Amazon Affiliate Program
, a program which provides TheTeakRail with a cut of any (e.g. toilet paper!) products you buy on Amazon
after clicking there from this site.

West Marine

West Marine’s mission is to be the best supplier of boating-related products and services that provide outstanding value to every customer and they support the teak rail by providing us with a commission on every product sold through our site…. but to support The Teak Rail you need to click on a West Marine link. Or CLICK HERE to get started.


We only link to products, books, and services that we have researched and feel confident reccomending to you, our readers. We also work with other affiliate programs and retails like West Marine, skimlinks and Viglink (to name a few).
