Scrub it good with the bleach, then brightener [do not mix together or do at the same time] and a good STIFF brush, let it dry real good before starting to sand. Using a sanding block, sand wet then sand dry to get the fuzzy wood off the surface, then sand dry again, wipe with a damp towel, let dry good and take a tack rag to it before applying any oil to remove any remaining sanding dust.

Knot in New Teak

i was cleaning my teak swim platform on my 2005 last night and noticed right in the center between the two handles is a dark line with a knot in the center...sure enough it looks almost like a gouge...any suggestions on filling this in or protecting it???it is a good 1/4" deep and dark black...

looks like it was that way from the factory!!!

They make teak plugs. I found some online when I was redrilling one of my brackets.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
