After getting off of work Monday, I pulled the platform and started sanding. Here is what I learned.

1. Progress may be slow due to repeated trips to the fridge for a fresh beer.
a. Solution - place beer in cooler and take to where you are sanding.
2. It's going to take longer than you thought.
a. Buy extra beer before beginning.
3. Any glue used in the original assembly has probably failed by now. Disassemble as much as you are comfortable with, it makes the sanding easier.
4. As much time as I spent sanding; next time I may just run it through my thickness planer.
5. See items 1 & 2.

This is early in the process.

Got one coat of oil on it last night. I'll get a couple of more coats and then post pics.
Being on the water is best, but when I'm not on the water I'm on TT.
