teak hatchboard repair

I need to glue a teak hatch board that has cracked apart on one side.

I understand glueing teak is a bit tricky.

I''m leaning towards a two part epoxy... I''ll clean well with acetone and rough the inside surfaces that are to be bonded before glueing.

Other than that, anyone have any personal experience and can make suggestions?.... If epoxy is the way to go, Which one would you use?

You are on the right track. I would use West system, love the stuff. Sand the surfaces first, then paint both areas with straight epoxy, I would add one of the powders that West Systems sells to thicken the remaining epoxy, it also strenghtens the bond, glob that on, then clamp the two secions together. Clean up with acetone or vinegar, and you are done!

Many glue''s require that you clamp them to make them bond like a furniture builder. Epoxie will bond better the tighter you clamp it the reason is as it cools and hardens it is not going to shrink away from its other half and weeken the bond. I have also used Admirals powder glue and it holds real good but is water base and needs varnish over it as a protective measure.
Duro makes several types of epoxie the longer the cure time the stronger the bond so don''t go for that 15 minute crap get a long cure and don''t rush it. Other epoxie manufacturers may have smaller amounts also but Duro is ok stuff Fasco is another they are out of Ft Lauderdale West System you can get a catalog from them Gudegon Brothers I think it is.
