STEP AWAY FROM THE TEAK AND PUT DOWN THAT CROW BAR!!!
Seriously, you would rip up the teak deck? Just love it and oil it and it will be beautiful and love you back...
Yea, and drip all over your head down below even when it is not raining. Unless it is a modern teak that was just glued down. It is not if old teak decks will leak, but when. You end up with a nice wet core and it leaks all the time.
They do look awesome though. There is a 38 foot boat that is near me (not sure of the make) that just looks so good, but I see the signs of the leaking in the photos.
