Thanks, this is the platform that came with the Surf Edition, I'm pretty sure it is just a darker piece of teak.

I agree, the teak platforms look so much better, us they are some more upkeep, but IMO, they are easy to restore and the look is classic!!

Finally did it

With the downtime and a little motivation from this forum....I took care of my platform. Sanded 60/80/120/200/400/600 top and bottom. Boat is 10yrs old and needed it. Just threw the oil on and have it curing. Thank you for all the information!!

Looks awesome, but be very careful when it's wet. That thing will be slippery then bald private parts using KY liquid when wet.

Followed a lot of the advice in the thread and tackled my ProStar teak last weekend.

- Started with the nervous task of disassembly. Go very slow removing screws because if any are at an angle, they can chip a piece of the platform when coming out of the recessed hole.

- Lay everything out exactly as you disassemble it. Be MOOCD about what goes where throughout the process.

- Next I hit everything with 80 grit sandpaper on a belt sander. Got everything to an even wood color. Wear a face mask and glasses. The dust gets on everything and is not healthy to breathe.

- Then I touched everything with 120 grit on the belt sander, being very careful on the ends and corners.

- Next I blew all pieces off with air compressor.

- Then I wiped everything down with a tack cloth to remove any remaining dust.

- Then I coated everything with Star Brite teak oil (I chickened out on the linseed oil).

- Several more coats with time to dry in between before re-assembly.

- Finally re-assembled with new stainless hardware, and put 2 more coats on while letting bake in the sun.

Turned out nice for 22 year old wood. Thanks everyone for the advice!
