Re: Cost of replacing teak decks...
As we scoured YW in our boat search, those teak decks kept calling me. I didn't realize at the time it was more like the call of the Sirens.
Finally we did some pretty in depth research on maintaining, repairing and replacing them. And read too many stories about wet deck cores from improperly maintained or installed decks. It took a while to sink in, but all boats with teak decks were removed from the list of potential buys.
They are still calling me but I'm now safely lashed to the mast.
