Finally...after many Blue Moons, Spotted Cows and don't really recall how many sanding pads...platform is DONE!

Here is a quick summary...to be honest, I was really apprehensive about using the linseed oil and minerals spirit mixture instead of using regular old Teak Oil, but I took the plunge and it was awesome. Going let it dry this week and see what it looks like Friday...might add a very thin second coat.

I mixed enough of this together to have a small paint can for any future use. Anyone see any reason this would not be a good idea to store these two liquids mixed together.

Thanks.

I actually took the entire platform apart, mitered all the small spacers in the middle and put them back so they are were spaced evenly. I roudned all the edges so they were even and ran 150 and 220 grit over for a few hours. It was very time consuming but I do alot of woodworking and if I did not do it this way, I was not going to be happy.


What did you do to yours that did not make you happy?

Looks like a fine piece of furniture, great job...

Rock mine turned out alot darker than I hoped for. I think I mixed wrong.. I did 80% linseed oil and 20% mineral sprits. Is it the other way around? Maybe I just had a not so good quality linseed

You can store your extra mix for about 2 years in a cool dry place. Like your basement not your garage unless its heated. Just make sure to shake it for about 5 min before you use it.

Well I burned 10.5 gallons of gas in mine today. Sat on the beach looking at it too. I do wish it wasn't putting oil in the bilge (rear main probably). And there's more water in there than I'd like (haven't figured that one yet). But better burning gas than working on it!

Stereo upgrade done this morning. New d class polk amps sound amazing! Barely warm to the touch after running pretty loud for 20mins. Amazing how small they are. Was able to fit 4 channel and sub amp in the same place that was occupied by my old hifonics brutus 1200 watt amp.

Began the ballast project by taking out the locker side and back panels in prep for mounting pumps and drilling 3 hole in the bottom of a perfectly good boat!
