Re: Cost of replacing teak decks...

Likely more than the boat sells for. Especially if you have it done here in the states

$80 - $100 per hour to remove the teak, repair the core (assuming it can be repaired), replace the deck. At least 100 man hours or more.

$20-30 per board ft for new teak to replace.....as they say "priceless" because unless you really know what you are doing or have patterns for the boat, 15-20% waste in cutting, fitting and such.

Supplies, epoxy, monel screws or proper adhesive if you just can't face ruining that newly repaired core, etc, etc, seam sealer, caulking, plugs, grates removing and replacing all the deck hardware.

Could easily be $20-25K for a 35'.
