The teaks sure looks nice when it looks nice, but sometimes I wish I just had a fiberglass deck
Thankfully it's only in the cockpit
had the usual loose teak
seen in most older boats.
I removed carefully the bungs in the planks that hide the screws, and removed as many as I could. NOTE: number your planks in the order they were removed, this will insure the go back in properly!
Ground off the non removable ones cleaned and properly prepped the cockpit area.
I then used the teak epoxy adhesive
to re-attach them. Being sure to space and float the teak strips evenly, less sanding
This adheres the teak to the deck
solidly, as well fill in any holes that may leak, seals water
Then caulked between the seams, sanded rebunged the holes.
No more holes or leaks
Came out very nice.
