Justified's method is best for teak. The only problem is, after you clean the surface with acetone or thinner the traces of the cleaner should evoporate completely. But waiting too lon will cause the oils to reach to thesurface again. You can also use alcohol for cleaning. After cleaning the surface with acetone, alcohol or thinner wait for evoporaiton and apply a coat of epoxy and let it dry. You can later apply a second coat of epoxy and attach them to the fiberglass.

Most glues and adhesives don't work on teak. It is an oily wood so the glue doesn't hold well, that is why you will see teak furniture either screwed together or some type of tongue and pin type construction. If you should try to glue it you first need to wipe the edges being glued with denatured alcohol, that will help with the adhesion.

If there was a faster, easier, cheaper way to do this, don't you think most boat manufacturers would be using it... There's a reason the old proven methods are usually the right ones to go with. Unless there is a change in technology or materials, the old methods are usually the right ones.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

The original ceiling in our '78 Pearson was attached by 1/2" screws into the core of the deck above. This seems to have caused no problems in 30 years. Maybe it was just dumb luck. Maybe it was because it's the underside of a horizontal surface, so there's no water running over it. So when it came time to replace the ceiling, I followed suit. Maybe it wasn't a good idea, but...

Along a similar line: When I installed the windlass this past summer, I found there were some places where I wanted to secure the 0 gauge wires but therer were no attachment points. I used polyurethane construction adhesive to glue small white oak wood blocks to which I then screwed the cable ties. I suppose only time will tell, but was this unwise?
