Teak Cockpit

I bought a 48" Pacemaker SF and she has a fiberglass deck in the cockpit. I really want to put in a nice teak deck but i'm not sure where to start. Any tips or suggestions?

Re: Teak Cockpit

For your sake, I hope I am wrong, but even if you budget $100 psf, it probably will not be enough. An internet search may find some CNC places that are likely to be the best deal you will find.

That would be GREAT. My email address is engine20ff@yahoo.com
Currently, the boat is in dry dock in NJ. Is that too far for you guys?

Re: Teak Cockpit

Cruising concepts in the Northwest made a really nice teak grate for our cockpit. We simply made a template from newspapers and mailed it to them along with where the pedestal or other objects were. It was 3 pieces and went down and up easily for cleaning. Looked great and was very affordable. I have pictures if you are interested.

Re: Teak Cockpit

skearnes,

Give it away. Seriously. There are other ways to deal with cockpit gratings that cost much less than teak. And, by the time you add the $100/hr for the tradesman to make it for you, unless she is concours d'elegance type boat, you should spend your waiting time sailing her.
