View Full Version : Swimstep Worn

02-27-2007, 03:58 PM
My 88 Prostar's Swimstep is pretty worn out. Grooved pretty bad with the grain of the Teak and around the edges to the point where some of the screw heads are showing through. I pulled all the screws around the edge and cut them off a bit so thats not so much a problem but it just looks beat and old. Any Ideas to bring it back to life, or know where I can look to get ahold of a new one?

Do an advanced search for "Teak Refinishing" or "Teak Swim Platforms", there are numerous threads full of information and opinions, along with the FAQ, "Frequently Asked Questions" thread at the top of "General Discussion" forum.

If you have visible screw holes on tope, you can buy teak plugs, drill the holes out, try out the wood with some mineral spirits, fill with some marine epoxy and pound the plugs in. Let them dry, then sand and oil the platform.
