Perperation /swim platform

After I cut out the damaged spacers with the sawsall and sanded the remaining wood, I'm ready to custom cut each spacer, drill holes for the all-thread, epoxy the pieces in place and tighten it together. Once it sets up I sand it flat and even with the belt sander.

We made progress today, crossed off few more things from our list. We need to rebuild the swim platform. After 38 years it has much rotten teak. So we pulled it off and will take it to Nancy's house where I have access to a a table saw and belt sander. Purchased a piece of teak 4/4X8X36 from Bucks Woodworks in Marathon which I will use to rip the spacer and rotten pieces that need replacing.
