Well I decided to give the Linseed & Mineral Spirits combination a try. We'll see if it lasts any longer than the Teak Oil does.

I'm doing my sanding makeover again -
Last year, partner dropped off the Star Brite 3 step -

Belt sanded it clean - coated the final teak oil on - install platform.
It looked like a joke from the start - had that urethane look - sure enough the brush used
was solid rock a week later.

The Unsanded end of platform looks as seen when removed last fall -
I'll be finding some actual Teak Oil that penetrates vs just lay on the surface and it shows.
One would think it was 5 years of varnish worn through.
6 weekends maybe max of in & out of the water.

REMOVING STAR BRITE FINISH
Beltsander process began yesterday - 36 grit plows it off decent.
30 degrees to the grain each direction - then final cuts with grain.
It blends the end joints flush nicely.

Leaving the micro cut of 36 grit in the surface to lesson slips when wet.
I'll try a micro focus close up to show what that looks like tomorrow.
Tonite was removing the rest of it - and the outer edge.



Hoping the image shows the horrible finish in close up of this section.

Turned out much Better than StarBrite - with a real look and feel of Teak. Huge Thanks to GoinBoatin.

Actually - A floor sander is the first thing I thought of using -
I grew up with those 300lb machines.

Making a starting & ending jig of 2x6's on the ends for running the machine past the ends of platform -
would do the deck in two minutes - vs hours - and massive quantities of Beer.

Update - Just returned from Menards - Yes they had the WATCO Teak Oil Finish.

I have been making my own formula of teak cleaner:

1 part TSP
2 parts hot water
8 parts bleach

I apply it to the platform, let it sit for 10 minutes and then scrub with a brush. I reapply and repeat a second or third time if there is any black. Requires an easy light sanding after, and then it is ready for teak oil.

Just bought a 89 prostar and someone painted the swim platform! I have started sanding today( very tedious) with the small hand sander I have. My question is how do I take it off? It seems to be wedged in between the bracket and the tow hooks on the back. Three of the screws are gone except for one that is rusted in the hole. Any help is appreciated

Was the platform black and the boat from the Atlanta area? If so, that boat has been the subject of a few posts on here. Glad she's in the hands of someone who knows you don't paint teak.
