Re: Teak Deck Replacement with Nonskid

I did this same project in 2008 on my Skye 51, replacing my teak with Treadmaster--best money I have put into the boat! In deciding between the colors, know that the sand color I used has made the boat worlds more comfortable in the summer as it has dropped the temperature below decks significantly. Good work tackling it yourself!

Does the lip you are looking to get rid of come right up to the vertical surface of the cockpit? It might be difficult to get a smooth rollover using epoxy and filler, LOTS of sanding at a minimum. I have never tried it but maybe you could use a router and rollover bit if you faired with something soft like West 410 filler but that would be prone to chipping with every day wear and tear.
