Thumbs up Deck removal tomorrow

How do all! I am doing some major projects on my Cheoy Lee this winter and you'll see me askining a lot of advice. I am at that wonderful age where I feel I know what I am doing but not afraid to double check it and even listen to other options.
I will be removing my Teak decks tomorrow, I understand there are thousands of screws and many which will snap in half since I hear they are all brass.
My question is what is the best product to fill the holes with?
I am not planning on replacing the teak and opting for something with lower maintenance which does not heat the boat interior up so much. I will be painting and adding non skid pads along the deck.
Also if any one knows where to get the best deals on non skid pads that would be great.
Thanks for all the shared knowledge I have recieved so far. I have a lot of work to do and the help I recieve from here has already been helpful.

A couple of years ago, after re-coring the decks, I painted with KiwiGrip. Am very satisfied with its durability and its aggressive non-skid surface. It is easy to apply, reasonably priced and can be overcoated later if you want to renew its appearance. The amount of texture can be customized to your preference as well. What I like about painting as opposed to solid skid pads is that the rounded surfaces can be coated so that there are no slick spots to hit when the boat is tossing around.

Good luck. Post pictures of your progress and what you do. Its always a good learning experience for those of us that might undertake the same project. Of course it might scare others off..

It would be pretty rare for the sub-deck to be issue free at this point

Do you know if you can sell the old teak to help defray your costs? The stuff's expensive--must be worth something, even with screw holes in it.

I have heard about the kiwi grip before, I'll look into it. I will take and post photos and update.
It would be nice to sell the teak since most of it is okay, not sure if I can find buyers.
I am expecting issues with the deck core, some folks tell me to use penetrating epoxy if I find soft spots that are not to big. There are only two areas below deck thta show any sighn of water leaking in. one I know exactly were it is the other I will have to locate.
I knew of these things when I purchaced the boat. The engine is new and the electrics seem so far to be in order after a full day of checking visualy and with a meter.
Still have no clue what brand/type of fillers to use.

Re the soft spots on your deck. Charlie Cobra posted, recently, a method which allowed you to pump epoxy filler in under pressure from below using grease nipple fittings [ I think ? ]

Charlie's was a quick fix so as not to bust the budget, not a good or particularly long term solution.

If the core is wet in larger areas much better to cut the upper core off and re-core properly. After the teak comes off the top surface will be pretty bad looking anyway.
