Re: Schoechl Sunbeam 34

Ok i confirmed with Sunbeam in Austria, teak thickness was 9 mm / 3/8 ins, so not much left for sure after 20 years--that's why you see the bungs popping out on these older boats. I stated in my prior post that selling a boat with teak decks can be a nightmare IF the teak is past its lifespan...obviously a boat that is only 7-15 yrs old should not be a problem. However i have seen a very expensive motoryacht 10 years old needing a new deck because the owners wanted it always to look immaculate...so crew were always scrubbing/sanding,oiling or whatever....they basically destroyed the wood.
