    .before

    Another before pic.....this had some sanding on it.....in between every board was really black before...it took 7 hours alone to sand that little part...I found an electric angle sander that got in there good...still took 7 hours tho...all worth it in the end!!

    Call Bob Maher at Maherajah Water Skis. He puts a brand on the skis and it looks nice. See if he has any tips for you. Sounds like something that would be too easy to permanently screw up to me. Teak is expensive.

    ** check this idea out**
    before throwing the oil on last night a friend of mine said "you should get a brand made up that says mastercraft heat it up and then burn it into the center board of the deck. then stain over it." basicly engraving the teak.
    i thought it was a kinda cool idea. VERY RISKY though if you mess up, really only get one shot at it. has any one ever attempted this or thought about doing it?
    Sweet Idea! You do it first!

    Go for it. I found a gallon of Daly's Seafin teak oil in a basement from the 60's... Worked Great.
    Remember its just a swim platform, not furniture
    Scotchbrite then teak oil. Repeat as needed

    this is only and best thing to use,been doing it for over 15 years
    -make sure its dry
    -sand with 400 -600 grit
    -hand sand,go with the grain
    -sanding will take 10-12 hrs,maybe more
    -vacuum clean
    -do not let it puddle
    -apply first layer
    -let dry 24-36 hrs
    -apply sencond layer
    -let dry 36-48 hrs
    -apply 3 layer
    -let dry 48-60 hrs
    once your done,it will look great,gives it a deep , rich look

    i tried the steel wool, problem was the spotty layers that never got taken in by the wood became. sticky/tacky the steel wool just stuck to it and ripped apart andmade a bigger mess...
    tried light sanding... but then the deck was not uniform any more....
    Sooooooooo! i got out my good old sander aaaagain and stripped it all
    i shall start all over from step one in the morning.
    this time i will make sure to watch for puddling where the teak is no longer taking it in.

    (2nd times a charm!) knock on teak
    I have never tried the home-brewed mixture before. The stuff I use has always dried evenly and has not had any issues with the steel wool once dry. Sorry it didn't turn out well for you.

    It wouldn't hurt to hit it lightly with a sander again, like 220 grit to get it to take more oil, but not necessary.
    If you're not into sanding it, just let it sit in the sun for a few days, it'll soak in. Any excess will be not noticeable and gone quickly once you hit the water anyway. Always leaves a nice little oil slick behind the boat for the first few hrs on the lake.
