Re: Teak Deck Replacement with Nonskid

The job continues. I had to go out of town for work, but I'm back on the boat now.

Next problem is the chainplates come through the deck and are built up about a half inch with some epoxy and fiberglass so it doesn't collect water flush from the deck.

I'm trying to figure out how to clean up the edges and make it look nice and then seal it up. Right now my plan is to fill and fair, prime and paint, then seal around the chainplate with 3M 4000. Any other ideas how to make this look like a quality job? I don't want to cut it flush to the deck because of the added likelyhood of water intrusion.

Invest in experiences, not things.
