How to secure teak trim??

I've been working on my 1970 Coronado 27 recently with a new topside paint job and new bottom paint so I also decided to replaces the modly, split teak trim. My question is, as I've found reasonable priced teak and the tools and location necessary to finish it (read grandpa's garage), how do I secure it to the deck? It is just trim that runs the side of the companion way hatch and holds it in place and along the side of the companion way holding the slats in place. I was planning on using counter-sunk flat head stainless screws with little plugs to cover the heads. Should I also use some sort of caulking or sealant between the deck and the teak? It is newly painted with Interlux Brightside one-part. Thanks.

I would recommend going with BRONZE screws if you can find them, rather than stainless steel. Bronze holds up much better in situations like this and won't bleed rust.

I would recommend using a polysulfide sealant, like BoatLife LifeCalk, to bed the rails in.

I'd point out that the rails are not trim, but an integral part of the boat's companionway and as such should be through-bolted, not screwed in place.

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.

I said BRONZE... brass screws just suck...and on a salt water boat, they tend to disintegrate quickly. Also, the rails above should be through-bolted, not screwed in place.

Jamestown Distributors has a great selection of bronze fastners if you cannot find them locally.

I would use ss screws. They will be buried and rust stains won't be an issue.I would use 4200 for bedding. It provides some structural strength and can be removed later with care. David

For what it's worst, on the Catalina 27, the outside trim is attached with stainless countersunk flat head screws from the inside, and then the inside trim is attached with stainless oval head screws with finishing washers.
