Mixing these two actually works well for several things outside of just Teak (ever needed to refurbish black plastics? :-) ).

This is basically the same stuff that you find in Teak Oil to my understanding, but cheaper and in bulk.
It's 75% linseed oil(boiled or otherwise) and 25% mineral spirits or generically paint thinner.

I have some leftover Brazilian Ipe, so I am toying with this idea of a new teak deck as a winter project.

I figure using the current fiberglass platform and brackets as a template should make everything pretty straight forward?

Anyone have experience doing it this way?

IPE wood is awesome. All of our outdoor furniture is IPE and has held up perfect.

I've put 3 coats of linseed oil on my deck and it seems like it's getting lighter. Is there a trick to getting it to go darker?

Need repair suggestions on swim platform 87 PS

Has anyone undertaken repairs on a split part of the platform? Mine is split on the top so that it
could pinch someone or cause a splinter. Perhaps seadek placed over the platform? Is that a possibility?

Take it off and replace it with a new rail; no need to go to the expense of a complete overhaul.
I think I read somewhere here you could replace the entire platform for $300.00+ change. That's if you choose to go new. I think you can make it look just as nice with a little effort: and you can say,"Look what I did".
Good luck
