Re: Teak Deck Replacement with Nonskid

Got most of the cockpit teak and hardware removed today. Tomorrow I'll be cleaning up all the stuff we removed today.

Great help today from Jaime, Natalie and Eric! Tomorrow I hope to fill a lot of new screw holes.

Re: Teak Deck Replacement with Nonskid

Got the teak all off the cockpit and lots of screw holes filled with epoxy. Now it's just what to do with the quarterdeck area. The deck feels solid, but my moisture meter says it's wet. I'm letting it dry out and will see if the wood still stays solid.

Re: Teak Deck Replacement with Nonskid

Thanks. I'm making a trip to WestMarine to get some more epoxy and fairing filler. Then I'll be working on the deck above the transom and quarterdeck. My next big issue will be working with the coaming that's left around the cockpit from where I removed the teak. I need to make a decision of whether to lay balsa and epoxy it down and glass over, or to cut the coaming down and fair smooth. It looks like I may need to get an angle grinder.

You know, without pics this really isn't that great of a thread.

Re: Teak Deck Replacement with Nonskid

OK, more pictures and a status update.


My dock neighbor, Jay from JAYGAR is on the right helping scrape off the sticky tar stuff, while I'm on the left with my head down out of the frame removing bedding compound. So far I've used three different methods to remove the sticky stuff and the easiest one was using a paint or varnish scraper. The other less successful methods were using a Scotchbright green scrubbing pad with acetone and using a paint removal wheel.


This is a repost of a picture of the cockpit taken while standing on my dockbox showing how white and nice the cockpit looks after scraping the sticky teak bedding compound off and cleaning the area with acetone.


Here is my next problem. After removing the teak there's a half inch lip or coaming in the cockpit that I need to deal with. My first instinct is to cut it off with my Fein multimaster or a sawzall and then smooth it and fair with epoxy fairing compound, but before I make the fist cut I want to see if anyone out there in sailnet land has experience with this.

Re: Teak Deck Replacement with Nonskid

How about keeping the lip and using it to help retain some cushions? Perhaps, you can file some drainage slots in. Or, keep some strategically placed lips to do the same and grind off the rest...

Re: Teak Deck Replacement with Nonskid

Yeah, I was wondering why you'd get rid of that lip, too. I like the idea of using it to hold the cushions in place.

Re: Teak Deck Replacement with Nonskid

You can scupper the lip. (notch it) so water drains and you will have a lip for cushions too!
