So, I think I know the answer to this, but maybe this is something new I haven't heard about yet. Im looking at a boat
that has teak
decks, and all the bungs have been removed and round head
screws up in (stainless of course) I assume coated in sikiflex or similar. My understanding of this is that its a trainwreck, and you have just allowed water
into the balsa core
. As the wood and the metal expands and contracts at different rates, and the sealant
will eventually break and water
will get in, the way to fix it is to remove all screws, fill with thickened expoy, drill, rescrew with flat head
screws, then replace all bungs epoxinging them down.
Am I wrong? Is this a viable way to fix leaky teaky decks? with round head screws and no bungs?
