Looks great though

Hoping so Jeff.

I believe going this route, the yearly maintenance is going to be alot easier than having to go thru this proces again in a few years. I think my maintenance would be any spots that show up, sand down with a high grit sand paper (wet) and reapply some of the mix.


The 2 platforms on the BF200 are totally different. I think I used Teak Oil and then sealer. I never liked the way they looked (like they were painted) but they have lasted a long time without fading or chipping.

More correctly it would be called "Teak Oil Finish" (actually, even better would be "Oil Finish for Teak"). Most commercial TO is either Tung Oil or Linseed Oil and may have some additives like UV inhibitors or driers (otherwise can take a long time to cure). Personally, I use the 80% linseed oil / 20% Mineral Spirits mix--it's cheap, and does a great job. I also happen to like the dark, rich tone it gives the wood, but that's a personal preference more than anything.
Agree. None of my teak trees had any oil in them!

Finally got a flush pro installed. Wasn't going to do it but they were on sale for 40 bucks at a local shop and had to snatch one up. Shockingly it was the exact width of the fitting that tees back in the block drains on the merc. So now I have those lines capped off and ready for a shower install next winter. MUAHAHAHA

Wiped down the engine from winter and oiled up some of the bolts... 18 year old power plant still has lot's of shine..

Next up is washin' down the bilge and cleaning carpet and getting a new battery and... sorry MCOCD took over.... I so need to get some cool valve covers... any thoughts on where? These are soo boring... really envious of the 351's with the stripes and MC Power on them...

I spray a the manifold bolts and other bolts with liquid wrench and the residue is usually enough to wipe down the rest of motor... leaves a little trace of oil but then of course I'll wipe it down again a few times this every season... and then of course a spritz of engine shine as the meds for my MCOCD

Added switches for transom lights and speaker lights. I'm working on a new panel with labels but this placement actually looks pretty good and is quite functional as well.
