    Good morning to all. Got this boat that was sitting out side on a trailer for the last 7 years. Trying to bring the boat back together. Is anyway I can save the wood? If yes what should I do?
    thank you

    That wood does not look worthy of your efforts (my opinion). It would likely be a whole lot easier to buy new wood and build yourself if you're a bit handy.

    Good luck!

    Teak can usually be brought back if you are willing to invest in some elbow grease. My Cobalt had a teak swim platform that look about like some of your teak.

    You can restore it but you are going to lose some of it in the process. For my platform I took it apart and ran it all through a surface planer I bought at Harbor Freight. Once I got down to bare, clean wood I started the sanding process. I then finished with several coats of Minwax Spar Urethane in Clear Satin finish.

    Here are a couple of pics....
