    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?

    Also I notice in a previous thread that you changed the insulation in your motor box. What tape did you use for the seams?

    Keep talking TEX. That is my project for tonight. What do you know, what have you done? I was going to rough them up with a scotch brite pad and paint with rustoleum. Hadzinak is talking about stainless? Where did you find those?

    FWIW: I just found the #12 oval head ss screws at Lowes 5 for 2 bucks.

    Most commercially produced teak oils are either a combination of linseed oil and mineral spirits or tung oil and mineral spirits. The commercially produced teak oils also tend to have some components in them to offer UV and mildew resistance. What you have is likely a tung oil based "teak oil." You might consider doing the bottom of the platform first. If you like the results, continue on with the top. If not, try something else on the top. Nobody sees the bottom anyway and I'm sure whatever you have will offer ample protection.

    Teeking Swim Platform

    HAs anyone ever used Circa 1850 tung and teek oil on their swim platform? I am starting to re-do my this week and this is what the hardware brought in for me. Would hate to do all that work and apply a really bad teak oil......Thanks!

    I havent painted the brackets black ( I am not sure about the term brackets... the metal things that connect the platform to the hull ). I 'm thinking about replacing them with inox ( stainless steel ) brackets

    I used tight bond 3. It is supposed to be waterproof, although it is not really designed for constant submersion. My boat lives on a trailer and the deck is only under water when we are stopped, so it should be good I hope. Regardless I'm not doing it again for as long as I live. I know the glue gives some strength to the platform overall, but the main reason I used it was because the slats are flexed and on constant tension and I didn't want that stress on the screws alone for the next 20 yrs. Also when I took apart the deck hardly any of the 13yr old glue was actually holding anything but sand and dirt.

    I was really worried about getting it all back together once I had it apart, but it actually went back together quite easily. As far as what oil I'm using, the stuff the guy sold me at the MC dealer. I'm not sure what it is, but I'll post it along with a final picture when I'm all done.

    1st picture is of the bottom side after taking it apart. 2nd and third are after putting it back together tonight.

    What do you mean by 'dyed' the brackets?

    Got to do mine next; I was just going to paint them with a spray bomb.

    By the way your teak looks beautiful!
