kiteklan's terrible

I am sending these photos because most of yours platforms are in great shape so do not be so picky ,look at mine and be happy

Mine was in terrible shape and best I could get out of this was the last picture.
I think salt water do not treat the teak nice as fresh water.
I am planning to reconstruct the same style platform with new teak this summer.
What I am curies about if should i repeat the same model with grills or make as the platform as new models thicker and less grills?

Mine is pretty rough looking. I'm thinking about planing mine about 1/6th or and 1/8th thinner and starting over with fresh wood. It looks like someone tried to route the grooves in between the planks out and they aren't straight anymore. I was thinking about doing this and epoxy sealing it.[IMG]file:///C:/Users/THESHA%7E1/AppData/Local/Temp/moz-screenshot.png[/IMG]

Salt actually stains and preserves teak. Most sportfishers go "blonde" with there teak and sand down to bare wood, brush saltwater on the decks and then let them bake in the sun. The sun bleaches the teak out and then if they are really ambitious, they will apply a coat of teak oil. Nobody in the salt does a TMC job on there teak. It would get torn up in .01 seconds and is slippery than hell when trying to fish or move around on a moving boat.

Kiteklan, as long as the teak is not cracked and broken it's possible to make it look really nice if you go with the teak sealer and wetsanding procedure described on the forum.

I had used about half litre teak oil and made a day long sand paper.It has lots of cracks.
I will take it to a professional next time.
