Mineret,
Great work my friend. All this good work is making up my mind about who I'm going to get to do all this to my boat when it has to be done over after all my feeble attempts fail... And I can afford you! All that rudder business has me wondering about mine. Well I'll just continue to wonder, I'm not adding that to the list!!!

Never happen, I am going sailing. I'm putting down my grinder when I'm done with this one, hopefully for a long time! Keep at it, you'll get there.

So are you replacing the thickness of the teak with the foam? Just going to cut out the pieces and fiberglass them down over the existing deck then anti skid those for a raised area? or are you replacing the core in those areas?

Basically, yes. It's a solid glass deck, no core.

Great pictures, but I don't thing I'm the only one that does not understand what you are doing to the deck. Please explain when you have time.

I get it, by adding the solid foam to the deck you are replacing the stiffness added by the teak. Basically making a new "cored" deck with a new core and top layer of fiberglass. I do like the way you think. That should be super stiff and provide much better insulation on the bottom side and better radiant heat reflection to the top sides.

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

so.... I guess the Nauticat wasnt cored in the layup under the deck? I was lucky on my Hans Christian, it was a regular cored deck and plenty stiff. We didnt find any obvious wet core, but avoided looking TOO hard!
Wow man.... what a big job.... Seems like often a total restoration like that will not return your money........ are you worried about that?

I noticed the old hot water heater sitting out in one of the pics. What you going to replace it with? I took two out of nivana and I'm going back with an on demand propane heater. I wish there was an on demand diesel water heater...that would even be better I think.

Exactly. The deck is still plenty stiff without the teak, it'll be super stout when I'm done. The teak deck was in good shape, I just didn't like it. Better heat reflection and insulation are some of the more important reasons I did this.
