stanchion repair on teak deck

I would appreciate some expert knowledge on a deck repair. I have a stanchion base that has completely broken through the deck(Thanks Ivan!). The deck consists of approximately 3/8" teak, over glass, over wood(balsa or ply?), over glass. The teak decking lengths are very long, with most seams 5 or 6 ft away. What is the best way to tackle this repair? Is it feasible to cut the teak deck staggered near the damage, or does one need to remove the entire lengths of planking? I of course would dig out and fill the core with West epoxy mush after exposing it, as well as reglassing the top and bottom. Thanks for any help on this job.

stanchion repair on teak deck

Sounds like the right place for a dutchman, though without being on the scene, it''s impossible to be 100% certain. If you square off the damaged section you can replace it with a carefully matched piece. You''ll want to make sure the repair is big enough to take a few fastenings, especially since a stanchion is involved, and you may want to pay the joint with the black stuff (thiokol?) to make it look like the others. For better info from people who''ve probably done this twenty times, go to the woodenboat website (you''ll have to register) and check under the repairs section.

stanchion repair on teak deck

Recently did some teak deck work on mine. Re-caulked and replaced some planks. I am not an expert but I did work along-side a professional that I hired. It was no problem replacing a section of plank. It was a fairly easy operation. Make sure you get the angle of the cut the same as the others on the deck to minimize the visual effect of the shorter plank. Currently replacing all stanchion bases.

stanchion repair on teak deck

Thanks for the info- Is thiokol(sp?) the caulk of choice? Any brand names or sources for it? I do plan to glass a much larger area for strength, as well as beefing up the backing for the stanchion. I guess once one gets over the initial anxiety of removing undamaged portions the job should be straight forward. Now if only I had an 8'' lathe to make the new bowsprit..........

stanchion repair on teak deck

the best I have found is from "teak decking systems" in fla. google them

I have a deck with about 7 or 8 kinds of repairs and this stuff has held up well and is easy to work.
