Discolored, moldy, exhaust-stained and weathered teak decks are an eyesore on even the most expensive ski boats. After a few years of having dozens of kids, skis, tubes, wakeboards, and who knows what else sliding across them, teak decks start showing the beating they’ve taken. Not to mention these decks are constantly engulfed in engine exhaust and moisture.

But have no fear. Even teak decks that have been subjected to years of maritime abuse can look like new with just a couple of hours of refinishing work.

Bring your ski boat’s rear deck back from the dead with these steps.
