Teak swim deck

Recommended Posts

Dutchtouch14

A friend of mine (yes it really wasn't me), varnished my teak swim deck when I left the sanded deck at his shop.  All though I don't mind the look, it isn't as nice as the original and the deck is now super slippery.  I would like to either remove the varnish and re-oil it with teak oil to restore it to the original look.  Or if that is too much hassle I would like to rebuild the deck ( since I've already had to remove/rebuild a few rotting sections).  So I guess I'm asking for either a link to someone that can build a quality new deck, or suggestions for how to go about removing all of the varnish   thanks for the information!  Love this site!

Teak world enterprises Tommy Nations is the dude.   They were oem and likely can pull you original template

Try a can of gel paint stripper first.  It will probably do a decent job on varnish.

FWIW, if you do go with a new one, get one with the boards close together and a wedge door.  I bought mine from a guy on this site with a 2005 Vride, and it fits my Echelon perfectly.

Yep, some paint stripper, then wet sand with 60 grit.  Let it dry then apply some teak oil.  I prefer Amazon's Golden Teak Oil.
