Depending on the boat size, teak dimensions and profile, you should consider counter boring to accommodate through-bolts rather than screws. If it is midship there is considerable curve and pressure/load that will continue to work the joint. Through bolting is normally a better long term fix. Also, epoxy would be better than glue
