An update

We decided to work with NW Marine Fiberglass in Seattle. They strike me as practical and professional.

The aft deck was particularly bad. The plan is to remove teak, top FG layer and the core. NWMF will build up the bottom FG layer, add honeycomb instead of marine plywood, add a new FG sheet, additional matt and glass layers, epoxy primers and then Awlgrip non-skid.

The vberth roof leaked pretty badly, but the core appears to not be rotten. We removed the liner and NWMF used a hole saw to get a look at the core to confirm this. The plan is to remove teak, remove adhesive bedding, fill screw holes, add new layers of FG, epoxy primers and then Awlgrip non-skid. The bottom sheet of glass will have holes cut in to ventilate the core.

At that point, the only remaining teak will be the side deck and fore deck. With the liner removed, we did find one small leak around the king post. A channel will be cut in the teak to expose the FG deck. NWMF will then treat the post with penetrating epoxy and caulk the channel. I'll add some new trim to cover the channel.

In a few years, we will remove the rest of the teak, but we need a few years to "absorb" the cost of the current work.

At this point, we have removed the teak from the vberth roof and the aft deck. It really came off pretty easily. On Monday, our boat will be hauled and go "under the knife".

Thanks for all the good suggestions.
