Oh, well teak I can handle. Caulking/sealing... perhaps. I am 54 and want to go to Bermuda/etc. and write the great American novel and be basically solo, until I find some fellow wakos to sail across the Pacific with me. Writing, motorsailing, varnishing-- that's the life for me. And I do want to have a big engine, as long as there are no maintanence problems with it!!! Thank you all for your responses. Does CaptainMorgan smell good?
Did you write your novel?
It's Funny you made reference to writing because when I read another of your comments a few entries further back before this one I thought to myself there is a writer if ever there was one.
If you plan to live aboard, keeping the teak in OK shape is much easier -- you can break up the job into little ongoing bits. Teak can last a very long time, but keeping it looking lovely requires work.
