Hey Chaz... saw your blog. nice... the old teak was not salvagable.. it was so thin in areas that it snapped easily.. it made for a nice pile of kindling in my fireplace last winter, though I didn't want to burn much there due to the glue still on the teak.

Also, I have built a new glass deck on top of the old one and would never put teak down again. If you plan to sail anywhere hot, glass is so much easier on your feet, while also being so much easier to maintain. The deck I built has a core of Divinicyl Foam so my new glass deck is the same level as the old teak deck was, plus I have a truly great insulator for living aboard in cold months.

Additionally, I ended up with very strong "double-decker" construction and will never have to worry about the old lower deck delaminating... I repaired all it's delam but if it it does behave badly the new deck takes all the load... and in the end, one can play tennis onboard and there is NO flexing or dipping on the new deck.. solid as she was designed to be. Most of the teak deck removals I see on these boats simply remove the teak, fill the holes and paint or gelcoat over... it leaves gaps and low spots, and in the end you're still relegated to the original deck. While more work, putting a layer of core material down and laying up a new surface essentially creates an optimal new deck.

On the other hand, I've had the boat in the shop for 8 months... expect to finish the primer and fairing tomorrow and she's scheduled for a topsides, deck and cabin Awlgrip beginning of next month. So much for summer sailing in New England, but she's going to be sweet and really ready for next year. (Bermuda I hope! )

Are you relaying a sprung deck or straight?
What glue are you using to fasten the deck with?

We've put up a blog for our work on our boat here.

Maybe I didn't really answer your question .. the "Glue" is polyester resin and I am not sure what sprung vs straight means, unless you 're referring to re-laying teak decking?

sprung vs straight laid deck

Yes, sprung as in the deck planks are bent to match the hull's curve fore and aft, as opposed to straight planks. But if you're glassing the deck, then it doesn't matter. :+)

Re:

We are thinking of doing something similar to this:


Gambit: Oct. 2006: Image 18 of 49

This is a clipper, so the cabin trunk is wider allowing for this set up, but we think we can find a way to use the space similarly. We want a nav station/counter and better access to the wet locker space.
Next time you're in the big city drop on by!
We may be up in your area later this month, we'd love to see your boat.

seeking Cheoy Lee Hatch Hinges

Hey all... I am searching for a pair of replacement teak hatch hinges... cheoy lees being famous for their "open both directions" hatches means they have the little removable pins that one can swap over to the other set of hinges if you want. one set of mine lost the extensions for the pins ( previous owner must have had a windy day!) Any idea where I can get some replacements?

Jandrade, Did you ever find the replacement teak hatch hinges? I'm looking for the hinges and the pins.

Also, those of you who have CL Luders 36's, where is the holding tank installed on your boat?

Thanks all.

Janrade, What specific Davinicyl Foam did you use and where did you get it?
Thanks. David
