Forgive me Mike, but I'm not exactly sure what you're referring to, but I suspect you might mean the metal piece with four nuts on it? The teak
is in this state because when the boat was purchased the interior
was covered head
to toe in black mold
. At this juncture it's basically got bleach water
staining and drips. We are planning to completely sand down all the teak
surfaces to clean wood and oil
it or varnish
it. I'm going to have my boat-builder uncle come down at some point and check out all the wood on the inside (I can only guess what all is salvagable).
I should probably start a thread with pictures so all the experts can advise and pick apart. It's not the kind of boat you'd spend toooo much money
on, but it's a tank, and we're trying to make it seaworthy
and comfortable for weekend adventures
We are saving the 'fender boards' or whatever they might be. maybe we'll spend some time this weekend puzzling it out!
