I bought my touch up paint from Discount INboard Marine in a spray can for my 88 PCM engine.

Great project Jim! I'm looking forward to seeing the finished project. I also jacked my boat up in the garage and set it on blocks. It seemed amazingly stable, but I didn't have as much work to do on it as you're looking at.

FWIW, while I prefer teak in general, I'd go with the original fiberglass for your swim deck.

Thanks Shepherd, It is a fun project it has been keeping me busy that is for sure. I agree blocking is the best way to go. I am not going to get under the boat just do as much as the sides as I can reach and leave it at that. I like teak also I will have to get a pic of the glass deck tommrow. it need's some work but nothing I cant handle.

I am partial to the teak platform. How well will that teak platform fit on you S&S? I personally think the teak platform will compliment the root beer color very nicely as opposed to a fiberglass platform.

Hi Markismm, I am not sure how well the teak deck will fit on the boat yet. I will have to hold it up to it tonight when I get home. I think it would look real nice on the boat. I just have to wash it and oil should look alot better.

I would fix the fiberglass, but I would use the teak for day-to-day usage.
