Deck repair

I''m planning to lift my 28ft sloop in October to do osmosis repair on the hull. While it''s drying (2 months?), I''d also like to tackle another big project: the deck. Originally, the boat had teak over plywood- core fiberglass. Now (30+ years and several owners later) it has a faux teak covering, which looks awful and provides little in the way of traction; I don''t know what is the situation under that, but the decks feel solid. However, considering the cover-up, I''m expecting the worst - rotten core. I''m planning to replace/repair the deck with WEST SYSTEM epoxy and put another teak look-alike, a U.K. product called Tek-Dek, over it. Is it realistic to think this can all be accomplished in the (hopefully) two months it will take the hull to dry out? For $ reasons, I don''t want it to sit on the hardstand any longer than necessary, but the deck project would be nearly impossible on the swing moorning I use. Thoughts?

Impossible question I think. I know that I could not but I work 40+ hours a week. And what will you find when you uncover it? Do you have toerails that will have to come off in order to effect the fix? On my boat that alone would be a two week project. But do you have a choice except to start the project? Sounds like no.

We have a local company that supplies the same teak deck product. It is just down the street so I have seen it up close. It looks very real:

This sounds like some fascinating stuff. Has anyone had any first hand experience with it? Would love to hear more.

Thanks

I''ve seen samples. You''d have to get pretty close to realize it''s not teak - it also appears to have very good non-skid qualities. As a bonus, it''s made at least partly from recycled components.

I see that you were wondering about Plasteak back in 2003. I work at Plasteak, and was wondering if you''d like to see any samples, or simply have any questions. Check out our site if you haven''t already, www.plasteak.com
