Saw photos of a teak platform that was coated with "LINE-X"

it is a spray on bed liner substance...

Just a question...

Its been talked about, but I couldn't cover the beautiful teak like that.

Why do you need opinions?

I've heard that its not too nice on the ski, and that it can hurt the finish of your boards.

Its not removable.

I've read that if you want to try it just buy a sheet of marine plywood 3/4 or 1" thick, and then cover it.

And then you could use it and see if you liked it or not, w/o being out your platform.

Unless your deck is trashed pretty bad, I'd keep the teak.
Like '88 said, mock one up out of plywood and cover that. Linex will prolly stick better to rough sanded plywood than smooth/oily teak anyway.

No problem, I'm covering mine with "Butcher Block" Formica, I'm out of the teak oil business! :eek: :rolleyes: 8p

If the Formica doesn't work out, I'll make one out of Corian or Granite!

I made one in plywood, sealed it with resin and covered it with marine carpet. it's great on the boards and skis. Also, you can make it a bit larger than the stock platform. I love the look of teak, but this is more practical.

Every year while I'm sanding and oiling my teak platform, I think about doing something just like that... got any photos you can post?

You need to know TMC#1 has a slightly warped sense of humor. His ski platform is in better shape and looks better than most living room tables. It is the coolist looking teak you will ever see. There are photos in the FAQ section I think.

Whoa, a granite platform would be awesome on a wake boat!!!, assuming you could have some rubber stipling added on it for padding and grip.

I think that Trex would work pretty well too. Never wear out!
