before and after

Back for redemption......

I've only had 3 free days of suitable weather in about 4 weeks so this has taken more time than expected - boat is sitting in the lift without platform (the rumble sounds pretty sweet running without it installed).

Following Waterlogged's prescription, mostly: Long pressure washer session. Dry several days in garage. Random Orbital with 60grit - pretty extensive - a bit of hand sanding including corners. Starbrite Teak Cleaner. Dry a couple days. 75/25 linseed oil/mineral spirits - 2 coats on the top, one coat on the bottom, following recommended wipe and dry process.

Without a waterline cover, the sun sneaks under the lift canopy later in the day, so I will start drying and 303'ing as part of the daily wipe down process and see how she goes for the summer. Comparing my results now, I might try hand sanding with a finer grit for prep next year depending how it holds up.

The key to success.

Teak Thread- Everything teak in here.

Teak World really knocked this one out of the park. Very pleased with how this custom cushion saver step (matched to the swim platform) turned out. Thank you Teak World!

Brilliant! Love the teak step! I've said it many times that I'm appalled by the fact that MasterCraft has yet to figure out that we don't want to step on vinyl and replace it every few years. This is a major improvement. The guys at TeakWorld are great to work with too. I live about 30 mins away.

So I started with a piece of wood covered in gray carpet, and now my Gen 2 is a white MDF with knock of Sea Dek on it, but this is very classy ... well done!
