Thanks!

That's what I was thinking...It seemed the cleaner and brightener would be used had I NOT sanded everything down already.


I put in enough hours on this already and do not want to mess up the process at this point.

So I figured I would ask...good thing is that going forward, maintenance will be easy.

I shop-vac'd the platform and used the air compressor to get all the dust off the platform and wiped it down with a damp cloth. So the platform is about as clean as it is going to get.


So here is my dilemna...

Do I go straight to the teak oil application or is there a need to get the 3 step kit...1-Cleaner, 2-Brightener and then 3-Oil? Seems like steps 1 and 2 for me are really not necessary Do I still need to wash the platform down with a mild dish soap and steel wool ? ...any thoughts on my next steps???
I'd wash it and let it dry for a day or so. No big deal. I was a teak fan for many years until I went with the mineral spirits and linseed oil. My opinion and experience is that teak oil is a thing of the past for me....

Otherwise, I'd put a straight shot of teak (light application) let it dry for half an hour, wipe it down to remove excess, let it dry for a day or two, then repeat once more or until you find the shade for which you are looking.

Good luck

Put a power outlet in the small compartment behind the rear seat - so I can plug in my inflator. Oh yeah, I pull inflatables! And proud to do it!!

Same here.

I put a converter in to power a 110v pump. Fills tubes twice as fast.

I thought about an inverter, but I'm a little queasy about using high voltage around water and passengers. As long as it has a good ground fault circuit, I guess it would be ok.

John I am a fan of the linseed oil/ mineral spirit formula too. I spend years using #1's method and that is way too much work and doesn't hold up. (unless you forbid everyone from using it)

Snipe all that has to be removed is the transmission. The rear main seal is a one piece seal.run a self tapping screw in the old seal and pull it out then lube the new one one to prevent dry start and tap it in. Done! It was a 3 hour job. Took it to the lake today and have a dry bilge again! Woot!
