Meguiar's Teak Products

Does anyone know of a retailer that stocks their cleaner and oil? I stopped by West Marine but they only had their branded products and they were as expensive as buying the stuff I'd rather have.

So just sand the platform then apply your formula? Or do you use anything on the bare wood first?

I think most of these guys that sand do it for show purposes at boat gatherings. I like to keep it simple.

Can't stress enough to wipe it down before the excess starts to dry. Put the first coat on and let it sit for no more than an hour on a mildly warm day, then wipe it off as much as you can. Then let it dry completely (24-48 hours) before the second coat. Wipe it clean too on the second coat after a short time.

The excess will not soak in before it dries as a film on the board. Makes for a less than desirable results. More is not better in this case.

Thanks Chuck, my platform is fairly clean but also neglected. It does not look like it has been oiled in a few years. I think I will pressure wash it, let it dry, lightly sand then apply your special mix.
