Teak swim platform damage

Recommended Posts

corpusmalibuguy

Hey everyone. I recently "bumped" the corner of my cement retaining wall with my swim platform. It took a gouge out of the corner of the platform. It didn't rip off any of the boards, but there is about a 1/4" gouge. Does anyone know if you can use woodfiller on something like that? I went to west marine, and home depot, and neither really had what appeared to me to be a waterproof woodfiller. Does anyone know if there is such a thing? All I found was an indoor/outdoor wood filler. Thanks in advance for your help. I have looked all through the forums with little luck.

Take the belt sander to it and blend it out to smooth surface. If it looks different from the other side, do the same to it and make it match side to side and re oil.

Yeah, I thought about that, but I think it might be a little too deep. I will take another look at it though. In the meantime, if anyone has any thoughts on the woodfiller, let me know.

eHow.com has some teak repair tips on the website, they indicate fillers are available. Your local dealer might have an old platform that you could buy the plank in question from, or the whole thing for spare parts.
