I am interested in purchasing a new/used teak deck to replace my fiberglass one this offseason. 2004 Mobius LSV. I live in Alberta, Canada.
I will try the local Skiers Choice dealer here but am thinking brand new might be to much $$$ so any links, tips and all information is welcome.
Thanks.

you should hook up with jeffro and build a couple together, like a Moomba group project

I cannot state how much they would charge for just the part new from a dealer but I am pretty sure when we ordered ours with the boat it was a 250 dollar option. It would be interesting to see if anyone on here has a teak deck they would sell to you?

I had to order a replacement platform. Long story, buy my wife did not tell me to stop when I was backing up a short driveway and my glass platform got crunched. We ordered a teak to replace it for a couple of reasons. 1. it looked nicer, 2. it feels better on your feet, and 3 it was less than a glass replacement. It cost us $500 from a Supra Dealer.

I will let you know what a new one ordered costs from our local dealer.

We ordered our boat from the factory with teak option. It looks great! I am amazed at how heavy it is! I have to take it off in the winter to get the boat in the garage. That is also when I sweat, and breath hard, and curse and strain. You know when I take a bottle of teak oil and a rag and wipe it down real good! All that extra maintenance! :p

FYI...
Local dealer est was $850 CDN plus freight which will take it over $1300!
I will keep looking for other option.

yes, perfect fit. Three years later, still looks great. Many people comment on how good it looks.

We also get comments about ours!

Again a skiboat is supposed to have a teak deck! If it doesn't it is a pretender! :p

I might be kicking this Idea around this winter. I have the tools to do the wood working and I would think if you stuck with the design about the same shape as the fiberglass one you would be ok.

We just got our boat back in April and everything was fine. Well tonight I started noticing black feet prints from the swim platform.

Depends on the cost of teak compared to the swim platform cover.

I am pretty sure this was a 250 dollar option when we ordered the boat. Now these excellent price might be from the fact that you are not getting a fiberglass deck and that cost is figured into the boat so the 250 is the extra a teak cost over the glass.

I am planning on building one this winter for my 07 LSV, that's my winter time hobby.

Hey,
We lost ours for a week or two. I went to CT Supra dealer A& N . I went and picked it up for 300. it was a little damaged so they knocked off 150. I think they had one or two more left. A local Marina then found our original fiberglass platform floating . Now I have two but love the way the teak looks.
