I didn't see your OP two months back. I hope you didn't do this, unless the wood itself is beyond hope or you know the leaks are causing a real deck penetration problem. Even if they are penetrating, you may be as well served to just get it to stop as replacing the decking, unless you are going to repair the soft deck too.

Removing and fairing the entire deck would be an enormous job, let alone getting something new down that will look professional. Wow. Just thinking about it feels like an entire season of work.

I would sooner dig out all the caulking (they may a tool for it) and pull any exposed screws. Bed the grooves with tape and recaulk all the joints and screw holes. Glue in new bungs. I will bet this is less work than you are contemplating, but still a lot. This doesn't need to be done with perfection, as you would then power sand the entire deck, which both levels the caulking and cleans up the wood.

Let us know what you decide and how it goes.

Re: Maintain character of teak decks with nonskid

Well, the screw heads are all sticking out, the caulk is almost all gone and it's time for the decks to come off. I don't think there's a core penetration problem, but I've got a moisture meter and can sound the deck to see if it's wet.

I'm going to use This guide to seal all the holes, then this one for re-bedding all the hardware. Yikes

Re: Maintain character of teak decks with nonskid

I've figured out how I'll maintain the character of the teak with nonskid. I'm going to use Sand Durabak. The color is really nice, and it's not so dark as natural teak, but not blindingly white. (or dingy white after being walked on and rained on and dirted on by my marina, downwind of the highway).

I chose Durabak because it got the #1 from Practical Sailor last year and it has more color choices with UV protection than Interlux Intedeck.


From top to bottom, Tan, Cream and Sand Durabak
