So, it seems that the general consensus is that the teak decks are pretty simple, if a bit labor intensive, to salvage? the boat is shrink wrapped (has been since being hauled out last year). It is a 'Leuters' 36 (I think that is how it is spelled, anyway.) My friend owns a sailboat rescue outfit and has it for sale at $25k US. He can have it launched, too.

Something to consider? I'm not shy about working, but, am running a small business that seems to get in the way of life, even while enabling it!

Re: How Do You Fix A Leaking Teak Deck?

I don't think "pretty simple" is the general consensus. I think the consensus is it is a pain in the ass. It's not "a bit labor intensive", it's a large undertaking. I have built 2 steel boats from scratch restored many F/G boats and re-cored 2 of my own decks. Both were at least 30% of the deck.
I think you hear what you want to hear and going to do what you want to do. $25K for that boat is no deal. There are literally thousands of nice sailboats for sale. With a little patience, you'll find something much better.

I'm not ready to buy a big boat yet - I just purchased an old Bristol 24 and am bringing her home next Thursday. The big thing is that I know that I am headed for a boat in the upper 30's to low 40's in the next few years and I am all about not missing a good deal if I stumble over one.

My friend with the sailboat rescue company also has a Newport 30 that needs a good cleaning, ports rrbedded (& 1 replaced) and the atomic 4 should be rebuilt. It runs, but not reliably enough. That ones discounted to $2k because he is preparing to put up a new building and it is in the way - needs to go.

I'm not buying it - but, if anyone is interested, look up northeast sailboat rescue. Its listed there for 3.6k, but he wants to move it.

I wish you had mentioned your time line with the first post.

Re: How Do You Fix A Leaking Teak Deck?

If it is a teak deck on cored glass, and if it's dripping pretty regularly, wow, that's pretty bad! The water should be going into the core un noticed.... unless some of the deck screws go right through. Maybe the decks arent the leak at all....?
