      FoggyNogginz: I am usually on Old Hickory around Drakes Creek but I'll be hitting Center Hill a lot more this year, probably around Hurricane. I mostly Hydrofoil. Where do you ride on those Lakes? I would love to get out some evenings during the week.
      I'm in those same locations, and live in Mt Juliet near Shutes Branch. PM me and we can get together during the week sometime!

        I'll second that. I did my platform with the linseed oil / mineral spirits mixture. Wow, it is the best my platform has looked in years. I'm a huge fan of this....and I'm glad the warnings about linseed oil rags were posted on here because I had no idea.

        • Retro-fitting my '79 S&S with Teak. This deck was new, but weathered. Sanded and refinished with Linseed/Mineral Spirits. This was prior to reading of the volatility of Linseed Oil. Fortunately, I didn't catch on fire. (I may have posted this in the past.)

          • Guys,

            I redid my platform last year with the 75/25 mixture of linseed oil and mineral spirits. It looked great like these last ones. One year later, getting the boat ready for the new year and the platform looks like I hadn't touched it. I believe that I had had 3 coats on last year. I didn't expect to have to redo it every year. Does your refinishing job last, or am I missing something?

            • Gents, just make sure you are using raw linseed oil and not boiled. The boiled will harden and continue to darken with age.

              • This deck was a little tired and had about a one inch warp to it because it sat in the water for 12 years with the back brackets not being level with each other. Best I can figure is that it was a manufacturing flaw from Mastercraft because even when I switch the brackets side to side I end ended up with the same side being about an inch higher than the other at the end.

                To fix it I TIG welded an extra bead on the end and reshape how it sits on the boat.
                Then by taking it apart and sanding it all out and rerouting all the edges I am back to a new deck.

                  • Oiled and baking in the sun. This was some dark teak. I understand the darker it is naturally the more natural oil it has in it and it felt oily after sanding.

                    • 03 35th anniversary 197 that needs teak help. Any suggestions on how to get the black out of the natural groves that are in the platform and then what to do after that? Clean, sand, stain, ect... Thanks for any suggestions.

                        • Where is the recipe for the mixture and the actual products used for this mixture? I would like to try this on my new platform and give it some love...

                          • 3 parts boiled linseed oil, 1 part mineral spirits. my newish platform only took about 2 1/2 cups for 2-3 coats.

                              I had not heard this distinction pointed out before...raw vs boiled.

                              • question.... after all of this refinishing, how slippery is the deck when wet? I'm a new owner of an 89 prostar 190. My deck needs to be refinished but, damn if it ain't a slippery SOB right now.
