Re: Recore Entire Deck

I recored about 15 feet on each side of my Nordic 44. Previous owners had never rebedded the chainplates. I removed and cleaned all 15 feet. I then cut the cleaned deck pieces into 2-3 foot sections. Even working fast with a team mixing my epoxy, it was all I could do to butter and fit 3 feet of balsa before the epoxy started to kick. I then set the old deck skin back in place. When all the sections were back in place and set, your grind down the cuts, tape and epoxy , and then fill and fair.

I did repaint the deck with Interlux Perfection. I also made sure that all of my cuts were made in areas that were later covered with non-skid. In my case, I used Kiwigrip, which was great.

Really happy with the outcome.

Good luck!
