X-Yachts 412 - Teak Deck Lifting!

does anyone have a similar experience to mine of x-yachts teak deck lifting - both planks and sealant in excellent condition? a shipwright said that there had been no primer applied to underside of the planks. we are in greece, ionian, now and before i start relaying the deck any advice would be most welcome. no reply yet to e-mail to x-yachts.

thomas.

Is this fixed down with adhesive only?
Did the adhesive come off the teak or the deck?
It could be either a lack of primer or sometimes primer times-out before the adhesive is applied...then is useless.

Hello Thomas/kargard,
I also have an x-yacht with this problem. What year is your boat from? Ours is from 2003. Did you get assistance from the builder?

apologies for not answering [ i did not know my plea was answered until now]
of
only solution to the lifting teak is to get on with the repair yourself and save the acrimony of trying to get help from X-YACHTS. THEY WERE LESS THAN HELPFUL when i approached them for some suggestions as what they considered had caused the problem and how to go about the repair in the best way. X-YACHTS simply dismissed my enquiry for help by advising me to repair the damage as quickly as possible. there is a strong measure of defenciveness in that reply in that they are distancing themselves from any responsibility in the matter.
i wish you well in resolving your problem. my new boat is NOT an X-YACHT. THOMAS.

Re: X-Yachts 412 - Teak Deck Lifting!

If the sealant and decking is in fine shape, possibly, it was because the decking supplied was planed smooth on the undersides and the installer did not bother to coarse sand it prior to stripping the natural oils and waxes with a solvent (primer).
They most probably did 'prime' it, but the teak was planed too smooth and did not provide a 'grippable' surface for the adhesive.

regards...Ken
