Peeling it off.
Recoring some/all? of deck?
Putting it down.
Purchasing of parts. (a kit?)
If your willing to wait and do the job a bit further offshore prices are more reasonable. My friends on a Tayana 42 had their entire deck redone, removal and new teak for 8,000.00 USD in Phuket, Thailand at Yachthaven marina. Try on youtube...greenghost deck replacement.
I have taken up both teak decks on my boat. Yes, labor intensive, about 3 weeks for the coach roof including masking, sanding, painting etc.
