Dear Team Talker's,
Only 10 more days before I win my 22nd master teak wood best in show award... Please remember the "Do Not Touch" and the "No Shoes" (for the red carpet the boat and trailer will sit on under my big red tent) signs around my boat. I dont want to have to keep cleaning it or telling you and your kids to keep grubby fingers off my stuff. If you don't abide by my rules or oil your deck like I do mine I will remove you as my friend on TT.

Yours truly,

Mr. Hero Boy 1

I am getting ready to start restoring mine. I have a different kind of question though before I do.

My platform seems to give a lot when stepping on it. I know I am not the smallest guy but I figured it should hold 200lbs without rubbing marks on the back of my boat. I am trying to think about ways to strengthen it. I am starting to wonder how much gel coat I will have left on the back of the boat if this thing keeps rubbing into it when stepped on. Does anyone have any tips on trying to strengthen these up?

Great looking platforms!

Is there a good Teak wood care guide floating around?

It shouldn't be touching the boat. I know mine touches against the depth sounder feed-line, but it isn't compressing it...?

my '83 I got last June... the teak is the first thing we did. Had to sand it down, clean the woor and apply lots of oil. I wipe it down and oil it about twice a month.

Before and after

And how often should it be oiled?

Thanks

I oil at least twice a month... others prolly do it everytime out. I even oiled it a couple times over the winter... but my boat only leaves the garage to go to the lake...
