I can't wait to get back into the teak beautification business! I plan to use the Tommy Nation method this time instead of the harold way I used to do. Although, I never had anyone bust their butt on mine. I also skipped on the pledge Only 10 days until I go pick it up.

Using Harolds method, how long do you let it dry between coats before sanding?

You have to let it completely dry. You can just leave it in the sun.

I would caution against using this method as it makes the platform very slippery and unsafe.

You can see here what I am talking about. Whenever someone stands on the platform, it will flex just enough that it rubs.





And here you can see where it rubs against the boat.

2 options to fix it.

1 remove platform and sand the side that will face the boat. Make sure that you keep the same arch as the boat.

2 leaving the platform attached to the boat. Remove all of the screws holding the platform on. Move the platform out 1/2 to 1 inch. Pre drill new holes. Screw the platform back on. Remember do not remove the brackets from the boat.


The platform has play in it so when you stand on it, it will flex. Also when a wake hits the back of the boat it should flex snd not just snap off. The problem lies on the person at the dealer who installed it too close to the back of the boat.

I'm sure you can wet sand the back of the boat where the scratches are and buff all of that out.

Good luck
