Another teak deck thread... dont hate

Ok I am looking at a boat this weekend, so I will know more later. At this point I know it is an early 80's original teak deck 44' Taiwanese built (Lafitte 44). I am 95% certain the teak is screwed in from the top (some where done from the bottom?)
Sometime soon I would have to deal with this. I will also assume that there will need to be deck coring repaired (to what extent of course who knows).

If i remove all the teak myself, any rough thoughts on what the cost would be to have the decks recored and glassed by a professional? Assume 50% new core.

Yes I am obviously crazy.
hopefully I will keep this updated....

I just did my Formosa 51. Took the old teak and core off myself. The yard put in some new beams, new core, some other structure, replaced the sides of the cabin, new bulwark and cap rail, new Samson posts, new anchor locker and two bulkheads.. Cost for all that and glassing the whole thing was about $95k.
