Replace Teak Deck or remove

Anyone with experience with the cost and "need to know''s" on the subject of removing a Teak Deck from a boat like ( mine ) A Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 51? I have some spung areas and the former owner "experimented" with some funky chemicals to renew the teak but it just made it more unsightly and now it is very deteriorated( 13 years in the tropics!).

I was told that Jeanneaus "glued" down thier decks and taking them up, though time consumming, can be done and the fiberglass decking beneath can be cleanned up. So much so that it would be as if the boat never had a teak deck before? No screw holes to fill etc.

Sounds great if it''s true. What are the facts?

Is this true, and who has experience with this procedure in Southern California?

I replaced the deck in a 47 foot boat that was sprung. I had two estimates in California for about 40K. I had it done in Houston, Texas for about 50K. Removing it was no problem with a shovel and a grinder. It looks bad when it is happening but believe it or not it is no big deal to beat the deck off the boat since you are just covering it up again and all of the divits are just additional places for adhesion. My only advice is to make sure that you use TDS caulk and a bond breaker.

They also make a newer product that is a rubber based teak look alike. (sorry cannot find the literature at the moment) It has great traction and little or no maintenance. I saw it at the boat show in Miami last Feb. I''m sure a google search would bring it up. As I remember it was very $$$$$$$. But, compared to $50k it might be worth looking at.
