I'm in the process of sanding down my teak swim platform and was wondering how much do you need to remove? I've been using 80 grit sandpaper for a few hours and there are still small areas of shine (residual oil) and some darkness at the edges/cracks. So do I have to suck it up and get everything off or if I leave a few areas will it not be noticeable once I put on the 80/20 mix of linseed oil and mineral spirits?

Thanks for the replys. This forum has helped me out a bunch and also opened my eyes to all the things that I need to work on. It reminds me of a picture at my grandma's place "The definition of a boat: a hole in the water surrounded by wood into which one pours money".
