I can't seem to find the teak oil everyone talks about in the platform resto threads. Where does everyone buy it? Are there different shades? How much does it cost, also? Also, I am having trouble finding a good way to sand in between the rungs...any suggestions?

Tried that, there are no dealers in any zip code close to me. Anywhere to buy it online?

No hotter than your teak inlayed platform. I could see how it would be an issue on a big boat, but since this boat is so small, the platform dunks itself in the water by the time anyone puts any weight on it.... cools it right off!

Where does the heat go? Into the water, evaporates into the atmosphere and we have more Global Warming! Algore will be doing a documentary on you before long and winning another Nobel Peace Prize, so he can buy a MC with a black rubber mat on the platform!:rolleyes:

I heard if you paint the teak with white porch and patio paint it will stay nice and cool.....

I have had luck using the B+D mouse sander for the in betweens.
Kind of a time consuming deal....but its MN and the lake is 14" thick, what else is there to do to get a fix:D

I get my teak oil/ teak cleaner @ Mills Fleet Farm. :twocents:

Teak-r-Us is the best place to get teak oil and teak care products. Check to see if there is one in your area

I can't seem to find the teak oil everyone talks about in the platform resto threads. Where does everyone buy it? Are there different shades? How much does it cost, also? Also, I am having trouble finding a good way to sand in between the rungs...any suggestions?


I have been using the Black and decker Mouse sander for the slats.
I also get the teak oil at Mills Fleet FArm.

Has any one ever used STARBRITE Tropical Teak Oil Sealer? I was wondering if it offers any more protection than the white bottle STARBRITE Teak Oil / Sealer.

This thread, http://www.tmcowners.com/teamtalk/showthread.php?t=15427&highlight=tropical , sheds some light on the product. I appears all 3 Starbrite Teak Oil products give similar results, just the price, container size and construction (white bottle, clear bottle, can) are different IIRC.

When you buy that kit you get the premium oil in the clear bottle.

I use a small piece of 1x for between the slats, and a mouse sander in the inside corners.

I have no idea, cause I've never bought a kit except back in 1980 for a piece of teakm on a I/O and way back then it was all white bottles. Just a lot of extra added value, I guess.
