While taking a break from cruising I've been taking on a number of DIY projects. As a break from the heat, my next task is below where I have a 6.5'x2.5' area on the inside of my hull
in the main cabin
. This area has an original vinyl covering with horizontal one inch wide teak
battens spaced about two inches apart.
I'm considering three options:
1- Remove and refinish the teak
battens and replace them over the cleaned or replaced vinyl restoring the original design.
2- Remove the vinyl and epoxy
a few vertical studs to the inside of the hull
and then affix new plantation teak horizontal battens abutted close over foam insulation
between the studs. ($350 DIY estimate)
or 3- Your Idea? Thanks for your thoughts, Hudson
