Teak deck options

Recommended Posts

What he said , been there :-)

Its stuffed. Once it starts letting water through to the base layer, there is no going back.

The sooner you tackle the job, the easier it is, specifically that you have less rotten ply deck to cut out.

Basically do what raz said. We had to do it ourselves. Once you put down a nice new glass over ply deck, you wont miss the shitty looking old grey teak at all.

It is a simple enough job to tackle yourself, assuming you are half pie competent at DIY, and reading instructions. Invest in some good knee pads though....

Ok, will wait for better weather,strip fittings off, remove all teak, then probable annoy you again. One problem is doing under the deck mounted shrouds without mast falling over.

Did all this on a 28footer. When removing teak a short pry bar was great and then an electric plane. Fisished then with orbital sander. Didnt need to touch ply apart from a small section. Glassed over and glued/dowelled toe rails on top. took 1 week flat out from out to in.Coved around cabin top after glassing so totally watertight. Still looked mint 5 years later when I sold that boat.
