stainless steel brackets will be custom made, take off the old ones and use them to make exact copies out of stainless steel

Any thoughts, has anyone powdercoated there platform brackets?
You know I'm not sure. Mine are very sloppy when mounted. I can move the platform up a good inch or more. Because of that I order the drop down brackets from Eric at OJ Props. I install those sometime next week.

If you've not seen them they are pretty sweet.

PROBLEM!
ahh, well the first coat went on beautiful as shown above.
it dryed nicely and the entire deck was smooth and felt like teak should feel.
i put the second coat on. (i waited an entire weekend before putting the second coat on)
and the second coat is not drying right. its not getting taken into the wood evenly in all spots. some sections are drying normal but i now have spotty sections that are just staying glazed and sticky.... like they dryed but didint absorb into the wood... total bummer... i should have left it with just one coat

i fear im going to have to sand it off and restart.
tips???????

Put it in the sun for a couple of days and see if the heat won't help the wood absorb the rest, or help finish drying the oil that didn't fully absorb. If nothing else, when it's completely dry the deck shouldn't feel tacky.

After oiling it, you want to wipe off the excess after about 10 minutes. Adding mineral spirits will help it absorb as well.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

i used the linseed oil/mineral spirits mix to finish it. not teak oil.
but i will try brushing on some mineral spirits to see if that will react it help the wood absorb it.
Thanks

Hit it with some steel wool to take the sheen off. Then recoat with a light layer then wipe off to fill in the low spots. Sounds like your first coat did the trick and nothing else will be asorbed.
