Re: Help! My Teak slats are curling up!

Wise words on both the Plasteak and the Sunbrella.

Teak is a very cheap wood to grow - a tree is ready for harvesting in 12 years, yet we pay a fortune to buy the stuff.

Something wrong here.

I'll try to recover the old Teak.

Here are my cockpit covers, note the swim ladder cover.



I do find them a little labour-intensive to remove and install, though.

Me too, but it beats the hell out of sanding and varnishing.

Yes, that's neat.

I'll get the Admiral involved and see what she comes up with.
