I used Cetol on my last boat (ski supreme) and it worked fine. I sanded it clean applied a base coat or two then put a gloss coat on top. Things were still loioking good two yrs later when I sold it.

$140.00 seems really high for the two new end parts. I built an entire new platform for about $160 (pic attached). Where did you buy it?

Looks Awesome!

Jake,
That platform looks awesome. I tried to get teak from Lake Elmo Wood Specialties. I had gotton some there in the past to make my transom saver, but they stopped carrying it. They suggested Rocklers in Maplewood and they had it. Do you know where I can get it cheaper in the Twin Cities? I would love to know for future projects.

I would like to know if after you took the platform all apart, did the screws tighten back up like before?

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pristine, well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "-- WOW--What a Ride!"

Sully: I like Rockler, one of my favorite stores, but they are on the high side for exotics. I buy all my hardwood at Youngblood on Central in North Minneapolis. They have a great selection of exotics, and their rates are much cheaper than a retail store such as Rockler.

Where do you ski at?

Thanks

Jake,
Thanks for the heads up Youngblood Lumber Co.
I ski mostly on the St. Croix River, close to home. Great to go to during the week, but on week-ends you need to go really yearly or late.
How about yourself?

We ski on a private lake in White Bear Lake with the Ski-Otters ski club. It's pretty tight, just big enough to get a course on, but private is the key. Where about's are u? You should come over to the ski lake with us some time...email me at [email protected]. Maybe we can hook up for a pull this summer.

Dude, that platform looks awesome. Post some pictures after a couple trips to the lake. I am interested to see how it holds up.
