That's my boy when he took his first bike ride without the training wheels. Handsome aint he. Looks more like his mom than me, though.

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.

"installing a teak toerail"
WHY!!! Do you simply like extra work? I have a teak toerail and cockpit coaming on my 37 foot. Would like to replace with anything that doesn't need so much baby care. Yea, it looks great when I whip the scurvy crew into holystoning it and laying on umpteen coats of varnish.

My vote is for the 5200. There are very few applications I'd use it for on a boat but this is one of them.

Teak Rail

I'm curious how you will form the teak to follow the curve of the toerail - do you steam it as in wood boat contrstuction, or what? How hard is it to find the right teak stock?

Hopefully you are planning to create a photo step-by-step for those of us who are more all-thumbs in this regard.
