Meguiar's Teak Products

Does anyone know of a retailer that stocks their cleaner and oil? I stopped by West Marine but they only had their branded products and they were as expensive as buying the stuff I'd rather have.

Linseed oil and Mineral Spirits. Best thing since sliced bread and ski platforms....Ace hardware or similar...

So just sand the platform then apply your formula? Or do you use anything on the bare wood first?

I just clean the wood and cover it. Unless it's just a mess, it will go on just fine. However, I have had fairly clean boards for the last three I have done. I'd probably give the board a pressure wash and let it dry. Unless the board is trashed out, I don't see any value added to sanding. No prep for me on the bare wood. I think most of these guys that sand do it for show purposes at boat gatherings. I like to keep it simple.

Can't stress enough to wipe it down before the excess starts to dry. Put the first coat on and let it sit for no more than an hour on a mildly warm day, then wipe it off as much as you can. Then let it dry completely (24-48 hours) before the second coat. Wipe it clean too on the second coat after a short time.

The excess will not soak in before it dries as a film on the board. Makes for less than desirable results. More is not better in this case.

Thanks Chuck, my platform is fairly clean but also neglected. It does not look like it has been oiled in a few years. I think I will pressure wash it, let it dry, lightly sand then apply your special mix.

I use a household 2-cup measuring cup and mix a 1-cup batch. Makes mixing easy in the proportional ratio and that is all you'll need for the first coat. While waiting on the board to dry, what little that is left over will semi-harden and be useless so just clean the measuring cup when done and remix another batch for the second coat.

I use 75 % linseed oil / 25% mineral spirits. New boards are good to work with. I have done two new boards right out of the box and they turn out nicely.

Teak oil is just too heavy for my preference.
