Which First- Paint Deck or prep Teak?

Working on a friends first boat [78 Newport 30] and we're planing to paint the *whole* deck [not just the non-skid] and finish the teak trim as well, using Cetol. Not planning on removing the hardware, just taping, so which is the best order to do it in? Does it really matter.

If it were me, I'd do the painting first. Two things come to mind:

- No matter how anal you get with your masking, you'll likely still have a couple of spots where the paint will find its way onto the trim. You can take care of that when you then prep the trim for the Cetol.

- If you do the trim last, you can ensure that you get a small overlap of the Cetol onto the paint to seal the joint.

Just my thoughts -- others may disagree.

Either way, good luck with the project.

It will take a thousand times longer, but, you really should combine re-bedding deck hardware (and trim) with painting the deck. Then you will have paint in all the places it should be, and re-bedded hardware. Short of that, remove everything that is easy. I find it much easier to refinish parts in the basement, rather than on the boat.
