After I hit it with a finishing rub, it won't be quite so shiny. Plus, I just put the oil on. I lost track how many coats the top got. Bottom only got two.

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.

Is my platfrom an aftermarket one? I see all the other platforms on the site and they all seem to have many more slats with less space between them? Or are there a few styles?

Thanks, all. TMCNo.1 is right, it will last as long as I touch it up. It's been a couple of years since I sanded down and started from scratch. Even then, it wasn't grey or white looking. Just sort of rough in spots from my standing on it with the ski.

I've had a hard time finding plain starbrite locally. The last two years, I've used Amazon Golden Teak Oil. I don't think it looks too bad. I did, however, use the first two steps of the starbrite three-step after I sanded with 80 grit to get all the old stuff off. Then, I just oiled, let it dry, hit it with the medium steel wool, and repeat.

Brian26, I don't know. Throughout the 90s, they had the smaller slats. I don't know what they were doing in the early 80s. Your platform looks somewhat similar to some that I saw for sale online though. You've done a great job restoring it. I love the way the teak looks when it's all sanded down.
