The decks are screw and glued they don't just come off very easily, we did the work. There were a lot of holes that needed filling. Also some water
intrusion in the decks we asked the manufacture and they said don't worry, the core
between the deck
is not structural. Didn't make me feel better.
At that point we had to put a grip on the deck
, so we had it painted with awl grip, the whole cabin
top and hull
. The hull
would look funny
if we didn't do it, the gel coat was bad.
All the hardware
, everything had to come off.
The estimate on the deck was about same, but they would of remove the deck. Remember, teak not cheap
, very, very expensive. Also, take look at your deck,our s had some nice jointery, that would have to be map out, the chauking should be a two part mixture, very missy hard to work with, there is cheaper brand don't do it.
Things you should ask yourself, does your decks need replacing or just some maintenance
How is the gel coat on your boat, does it need some attention? Do you have to paint
your hull or not. Matching the top side sometime is not easy if you are not replacing the teak.
If replacing, makes sure it is someone that has the experience on replace, take look at their work.
There is a fake teak which is interesting also.
