Longest and Hardest

I will say the most difficult project was the rebuilding of the swim teak platform
I ordered Cumaru or Brazilian Teak from a local mill $300.00 in just the lumber plus all stainless screws . Because of the arch and the bend in the slats I had to build it using a negative pressure to say. The Arch at the rear of the boat would flex when you try to put the slats in place. To say the least now finished, I WOULD OF GLADLY PAID FOR A NEW ONE from the factory. Although it is cool to say I built that. I used the 70% linseed oil an 30% mineral spirits finisher several soakings. I did not get any before pictures of the platform prior to rebuilding it was cracked chipped and abused.
