Beauty is only as deep as your teak

Yes it was screwed and not glued. Boat is a 1979 Polaris 43 we have owned since 2001. I thought some of you would be interested in this little project. I will try to update once a week or so. Looking at the core damage I believe there was as much or more water intrusion from deck fittings than from the teak attachment screws. I draw this conclusion from the large area of dry core where there were no through deck fittings. Does your boat have skeletons in the closet?

That's a huge project mentalfee and I'm sure most here will be interested in your future updates - thanks for sharing.

Will you be reapplying teak, or using nonskid over glass/epoxy?

That was fascinating for me to look at as I've never seen the core exposed like that. Looks like a huge project, but I can't wait to see the end result.

BTW, is that where the term "rotten to the core" comes from?

I'm impressed with the work you're doing. Are you in Seattle?

Done for now. The boat was dropped in a week before Christmas. We will be painting and replacing hardware this summer. Had hoped to have it finished but... For the next few months I will learn to love "barrior coat gray", much the same color as the PNW skies the past few months.

Nightowle, yes, we are in Seattle and did the work at Shilshole, in Sea View West's tent.

The tents can be purchased through agricultureral supply companies. I have seen this size for 6-8K. Great setup.

I have updated the picture timeline with the hatches on and the boat back in the ware. I also uploaded some other project photos.
