Here's a before and after of my teak. I couldn't find ANY sandpaper in the 400 grit and had to use a 3M product that was kind of like a very thin sponge. It was supposed to be 400 grit, but the 600 grit did way more to clean up things. I think it would have turned out a lot better if I could have used the proper product during the 400 grit stage. The last three stages of sanding were done with steel wool - again I couldn't find any 1000 grit, 1200 grit sandpaper in Bozeman.

Hi guys,

First post after very recently becoming a Mastercraft owner - 1993 PS 190 - and have decided the first task is to restore the teak. With some good advice from a friend who was a fine furniture maker / restorer in a past life I am hopeful of a good result. Will post some after picks once finished (hopefully in time for the upcoming summer!!!)

Finished! A blast with a hot water pressure cleaner and 3 coats of Wattyl Estapol 7008. Pretty happy with the result for what adds up to about 5 hours of work.

And on the boat. Has certainly provided the inspiration to continue the work and bring the rest of the boat to the same standard... but that is for next winter, Summer is here. So for now, a quick going over of the engine (change fluids, filters, water pump etc), have the prop balanced, install a perfect pass and boom bar and it's ready to enjoy!!

I'm interested in finding out the history of the boat which has still has the US rego ID on it and a couple of stickers that might help ID it, so will post these in an appropriate thread and see if anyone out there knows the boat.

Hi Prostar190Downunder, Although your teak looks great at the moment, I would be a bit worried that it will crack and peel after exposure to water. I am not in any way a paint expert, but I was told to steer away from any form of varnish on wood that will be submerged in water. Everyone on here normally uses teak oil. There is a article here somewhere by TMC01 that explains really well, the best way to look after your teak, (I just can't find it at the moment)
