Teak deck removal or replace

Anyone with experience with the cost and "need to know''s" on the subject of removing a Teak Deck from a boat like ( mine ) A Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 51? I have some spung areas and the former owner "experimented" with some funky chemicals to renew the teak but it just made it more unsightly and now it is very deteriorated( 13 years in the tropics!).

I was told that Jeanneaus "glued" down thier decks and taking them up, though time consumming, can be done and the fiberglass decking beneath can be cleanned up. So much so that it would be as if the boat never had a teak deck before? No screw holes to fill etc.

Sounds great if it''s true. What are the facts?

Is this true, and who has experience with this procedure in Southern California?
