Yes , I went thru the same process on the HC 38 shown in my avatar. Removed the teak decks and repainted entire coach and deck. I chose to put on Treadmaster which turned out real nice and is one of the few things that is better non skid than teak. The down side is "feet comfort", the stuff feels pretty sharp on the feet. Great for cold northern climes... not sure I would do it again for southern waters though.

Nonsense. Balderdash. Hogwash. Phewy. Lies and BAH!

There is some truth to this in the version 1 products but the products and adhesives have made light years of improvement.

I am only a happy customer. I dont know if Thomas is national or just the San Fran area but he can at least point you in the right direction.

They look really good, excellent non-skid and are really easy to clean and maintain.

Certainly do not add anywhere close to $30K to the value and the more time that passes between new decks and point of sale the more dramatic of an impact to the value of the boat.

Thanks alot for your experiences. Its very easy to say one way or the other from outside looking in but when faced with the choice its alot harder than it seems. I think im gonna get some second opinions about salvaging what i have and maybe get some estimates for the gel coat....

Re: So I need to replace my teak deck....

You did not have a photo to evaluate. Have you considered a sand and re-caulk?

No comparison with anything else I've seen.

I got a quote today to refit my grand soleil 46.3 teak decks with 1/2" teak for 30k from world surface ft lauderdale fl. The deck doesnt leak now because it was originally glued down but the caulk is very raised and the teak is coming up in places....

What so you all think..... change the look of this classic lined boat with gelcoat and non skid or forever battle with maintenance of the teak.... but enjoy its beauty every day...

I cant decide.... my wife wants the teak... im not convinced. ...

I wanted synthetic teak.. but it seems no installer will recommended it and says it will always bubble

Im not really down digging into our crusing kitty for 30k

What's the thickness of the existing teak? Does it need to be replaced or can you reattach the raised bits and recaulk the whole boat? I second the recommendation for TDS.

I have to admit, I was one of those people, teak removed though, I'd have paid more.

30K, really? That's like a whole years budget for me, or at least what I'm planning on.

Re: So I need to replace my teak deck....

Yup, 30k is first estimate i got. Ipthat includes tenting the boat and surface prep as well. And 30k is a years budget for us as well....

Our planks are reaal thin maybe an 1/8" thickness left. Maybe thicker in other parts...

Re: So I need to replace my teak deck....

$30K for the whole job or just the wood? I have an estimate for over $100k to do mine. Send me a PM with your email and I will send you a copy.

30k with the wood... yours for a 100k? I think some people are smoking crack... im a general contractor by trade and i know margins for profit... but thats a years profit for one job.

Yeah,I looked at that estimate. In no way would that job justify 103k. You could lay a whole new keel for that much. I'm all for a fair wage for craftsman (myself being one) but unless the job would take 3 months for a crew of 8 guys I can't see it
