This is some of the Teak trim off the V-20.  Note the round spot where the finish washer protected the wood.

There is a mount of wood about 1/8 inch tall around the old holes.

Using a handy-dandy hand held 3 1/4 inch surface planner on the lower setting, Tah Dah! now the mounds are gone and the trim ready for sanding.

Add a little hot wax and elbow grease and you have Teak that kinda looks like Teak again.

That whole process took about 1 hour with breaks, cost one emergency candle and enough propane to cook a couple of burgers.

Marathon in the Florida Keys should be your next fishing vacation destination. Join us for charter fishing, fishing guide trips or our fishing 101 so you can fish on your own with better success.

 Tight lines,

  1. Hey Capt. Dallas, I'm coming out with an app for fishermen and was wondering if you'd be willing to try it out. If you like it maybe you could mention it in one of your blog posts, and in exchange I could list your blog on my sponsor page! Let me know what you think - Kyle. (

  2. loving the pics and the progress! chicago joe

  3. KCF I have been trying to talk a few of my younger anglers into doing a fish identification app that would work with your stuff. Maybe a few of them will get re-inspired?

    joe, as long as the transom repair goes smooth, she should be ready before too awful long. I do have to beef up the fore deck a bit with some glue and screwed lumber for the sunbather/fly guys, but that should be easy.
