So, I just yanked off a bit of teak trim...the trim that covers the aft edge of the 'glass hatch cover....and I noticed, underneath, some tiny gnats like bugs.

Q: do I do [something here, action verb] to them, or blow the 100 $ to replace the wood? [it's like an eyebrow]

There's no damage to the wood, per se, other than it being dark and slightly damp.

What do they look like? Not to worry you but, it could be a bigger problem. Catch some. You may need to identify them later.

BF's got a good point. You will want to catch some and store them, preferably dead but otherwise unharmed, for identification later. They could be harmless, but I would take them down to the local agriculture department for identification.

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.
