When boat buyers stopped buying them...

The teak decks on our 1978 Hudson Force 50 are hidden away under the preveious owners deck fiberglassing job....or we would have NEVER bought the boat!

It's not really best practices to glass over the teak decks. That will turn into a major problem in the future if it has not already.

"Best Pratices" on a 36yr-old boat...ha ha ha....Thanks that cheers me up as I prep the pilot house for rain.... But at least the yard that glassed over the decks took more care than the Bozo that did the electrical "upgrades".

Awe man that hurts me (not being sarcastic) Hope you can get her sorted out sooner than later.

I had a Electrical Engineer, Rigging Specialist, Diesel Mechanic and aspiring ocean race winner that worked full time as a cardiologist previously own my current boat and I have the 2 years of bank receipts to show off all the skills he mastered.

Re: When did manufacturers move away from teak decks?

Teak decks that were glued down are no better than screwed down ones because they just screwed down blocks on top of the teak in between the teak until the glue dried then took the blocks out again so there is still penetrations through the ply.So when the sika flex shrinks water gets into the ply.I have had to replace a deck built this way before the boat was first launched.Needless to say it wasnt teak the second time.

So it was simply glued down, not vacuum bagged, and it was not regular teak deck, but ply-with-teak-maquette deck? Both to be avoided
