Cape North 43 Teak Deck Removal

Thought I would post this so other CN43 owners (anybody out there?) would have an idea of what's under the teak deck. There were some leaks and the boat will be in the tropics where teak is too hot so "off with her deck".

Interesting to see the little square panels of plywood that were used as the core. There is epoxy between the squares so rot didn't spread as it might have if there had been solid plywood or balsa panels.

My good friend is doing the work for me. Replaced the rot with marine ply. Next step to glass the patches then glass the entire deck and then non-skid epoxy. I'll post more pics as the project progresses.

Re: Cape North 43 Teak Deck Removal

Hi BriRich!

Very interesting post! I am now almost on the point of purchasing a Cape North 43 at a very interesting price, after going through, we found the boat in a general good condition but the teak deck has done its time and my first opinion would be to remove it all.
Could you give me an idea of the work involve in such a project and the approximate cost if done by myself?
And any relevant comment on that type of boat is more than welcome!
Cheers

High-Sly, BriRic
We are second owners of Concordia, a 1978 cutter rigged Cape North 43. She was circumnavigated by Dwight and Maxine Isbell. Dwight was the North America importer of the boats. He said a little over 30 hulls were built. When Dwight had the teak decks removed, he found they were laid over a factory non-skid deck. For him the job was straight forward: fill the holes with filler and paint the decks. They're quite tired now and we need to renew all.
