Whose talking about wooden decks??? You have to fasten the teak down somehow and fasteners are about the only way to do it when you're working with 4 quarter teak. If you look at most teak decks, There is considerable curvature in the planks as they match the curvature of the hull. These planks are forced into that curvature. You could pry the boards into position and glue them individually but it would take weeks of gluing, waiting for the epoxy to kick and then on to the next board.

Re: Teak Decks Fastened from Inside Cabin

Yeah, most decks have a good bend to the planks... which answers my question "why the screws"!
