That platform looks great!

Thaks for the help guess I should have know to check the FAQ's Sorry guys. Thaks for help. Now you can actually see it. Thaks for the compliments. As far as the application it was pretty easy as far as my teak projects have went. No sanding after each coat was great. Only time will tell how the sikkens holds up with the added grit to it. Am the first to try it in the hood

#47 if you wanna ship it this way I have nothing but time. Just blew my knee. Complete tear of ACL, tore MCl and tore meniscus. Hit the 3rd roller off the d-up and stomped the trick(huge nuclear grab) but while attempting to finish the cut out WHAMMO! knee said sweet trick but you ganna pay for that

We oiled it tonight twice, so i'll get a few more pics tommorow. We'd like to sand it with 220 grit sandpaper and then oil it one more time
If you don't fall, you're not trying hard enough.

Just finished redoing the teak on my 88 ps190. Looks like it had been varnished somewhere in the past, so it took a bit of work to get it even ready to be oiled. I couldn't find the star-brite in the white bottle locally, so went with the "golden premium" instead. In the first 3 pics, the teak is still wet from sanding. In the last one, it's completely dry with 6 coats of oil.

How many coats do you guys put on. I re-did mine this past winter and it already has faded pretty bad. Maybe I didn't sand it well enough, or is there a sealant that should go on???
