I know it is water getting under the finish but if you varnish to close to the gelcoat the finish discolours the gelcoat and keeping away gelcoat allows the water into the teak. I have thought of using a small bead of caulking (4200?) to bridge the gap but not sure. Your thoughts please
It's called a "beauty bead". Use 4000 UV Black and it will match your deck
seams and look nice, as well as holding up well in the sun.
O you who turn the wheel and look to windward,
Consider Phlebas, who was once handsome and tall as you.
