Big brother thinks he’s going to have some fun? i’m going to have some fun to What are you doing.you idiot I’m Andrew I’m Kevin Welcome to Brojects! This weekend we’ve decided to build the ultimate swim raft.
Yeah i am pumped about this project it’s going to be awesome! Any other time I’ve been on a swim raft yeah it’s alright you get out there you hang around for a few minutes and then you leave basically We’re trying to make this so that you’re able to go out there and stay and really have know wants out there if you’re hungry got something if you want a beverage it’s there.
So it’s a long weekend we’ve got three days to build the ultimate swim raft we get a simple eight by sixteen foot platform and we’re gonna put five barrels per side to give us our pontoon style flotation on top of the platform we’re gonna build a pergola we’re gonna use four by fours as the uprights with two by six cross braces we’re gonna need seating as well as storage so a couple rectangular boxes.
Should accomplish both the plan is to stay on board for long stretches so both the barbecue and a drink cooler are mandatory we’re gonna put a couple hammocks on board as well some hooks for our fishing rods To get moving we’re thinking of installing an electric trolling motor to accompany that a solar panel table.
This is an ambitious weekend build but if we put our minds to it i think we can do it It’s taking a lot longer than we expected We’re flying at it we got a lot of daylight left today Time crunches on.we’ve finally finished our little window frame exterior perimeter It will look great when you’re on it but.
We need to skirt it for sure.junior? Skirt? I don’t do skirts man that’s your thing and Kevin is gonna cut out our notches for our four by four uprights we’re about two days behind on the decking but hopefully it will go fast from here on out Believe it or not we are both self trained carpenters.
You might not notice that it’s trial and error.all this stuff is trial and error These are a couple of benches we built to go on the back of the swim platform Pretty simple little cedar boxes we can take off the lid inside is where we’re going to keep the battery for the electric trolling motor and the other ones gonna be dry storage Not too bad.if I do say so myself.
The plexiglass is going to fit right on top of the solar panel Little table for the back of the swim raft I just get the little people to do the work for me after I do the brainstorming I wouldn’t say I’m the little people This is head and shoulders above what the initial thing started out to be We threw in a lot of extras like the pergola and the barbecue.
Restore Teak with Iosso Teak Cleaner
Eric: this tutorials brought to you by sailrite. Visit Sailrite for all your project supplies, tools, and instructions. If youve got a boat or furniture made with teak wood, and its outside in the weather, chances are that over a short time it will need to be restored. In this tutorial, well show using Iosso Teak Cleaner to restore this swim platform on a powerboat.
Iosso teak cleaner safely cleans wood without damaging or drying out wood fibers, and its safe around fabric, carpet, metal, or fiberglass. Iosso Teak Cleaner is biodegradable. Its a wood cleaner with no chlorine and no bleach. Mix the recommended amount of Iosso Teak Cleaner with warm water. Stir until dissolved.
You can sponge, brush, or spray the solution onto the surface to be cleaned. If its hot, cool with water before application. Brian: Just let that soak in. Eric: After brushing, let it stand ten minutes or longer, keeping the area wet with the solution. While the solution is being allowed to rest approximately ten minutes onto the wood we also like to keep it wet with the solution during that time well then take a scrub.
Brush and thoroughly brush the solution onto the wood. This removes all of the dirt and grime. We also like to keep that scrub brush that were using wet with the solution as well. A 16 oz. jar of Iosso Teak Cleaner makes four gallons of cleaning solution. Brian: It works better if you keep dunking it. I figured Id have to do it twice.
I may not have to. Eric: After scrubbing, rinse with clean water. Youll notice right away it removed the dirt, the mildew, the stains, the black algae, and also oil stains, and it restored it to a bright natural look. This weathered teak is no longer weathered looking. You must allow the teak to dry at least 24 hours before applying any stains or sealants.
Extremely weathered wood may require a second application. After allowing the wood to dry completely, Brian applied the teak oil. He applied several coats. Here are the results. As you can see, its gorgeous. Order Iosso Teak Cleaner from Sailrite today.
