    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
    UGH! Sorry, that sucks. Just think when you crusing the MC by all the ladies this summer and your wood looks as good as it does it really wont matter!

    Hit it with some steel wool to take the sheen off. Then recoat with a light layer then wipe off to fill in the low spots. Sounds like your first coat did the trick and nothing else will be asorbed.

    i used the linseed oil/mineral spirits mix to finish it. not teak oil.
    but i will try brushing on some mineral spirits to see if that will react it help the wood absorb it.
    Thanks

    After oiling it, you want to wipe off the excess after about 10 minutes. Adding mineral spirits will help it absorb as well.

    Put it in the sun for a couple of days and see if the heat won't help the wood absorb the rest, or help finish drying the oil that didn't fully absorb. If nothing else, when it's completely dry the deck shouldn't feel tacky.

    PROBLEM!
    ahh, well the first coat went on beautiful as shown above.
    it dryed nicely and the entire deck was smooth and felt like teak should feel.
    i put the second coat on. (i waited an entire weekend before putting the second coat on)
    and the second coat is not drying right. its not getting taken into the wood evenly in all spots. some sections are drying normal but i now have spotty sections that are just staying glazed and sticky.... like they dryed but didint absorb into the wood... total bummer... i should have left it with just one coat

    i fear im going to have to sand it off and restart.
    tips???????

    Thought about that too, however, I am worried about the thickness of the powdercoat material and the bracket receiver on the boat. I know previously I have taken metal off around bolt holes and such to allow for the extra thickness but have real concers about shaving metal off of these brackets to allow for the powdercoat.

    Any thoughts, has anyone powdercoated there platform brackets?
    You know I'm not sure. Mine are very sloppy when mounted. I can move the platform up a good inch or more. Because of that I order the drop down brackets from Eric at OJ Props. I install those sometime next week.

    If you've not seen them they are pretty sweet.

    Foil tape from Lowes.

    As for what I know about the paint, I have seen brackets scuffed and repainted. I don't know if powdercoating is a better way to go. I just know that the paint jobs I have seen have not lasted more than a couple of outings.
