Re: Teak Deck Replacement with Nonskid

The job continues. I had to go out of town for work, but I'm back on the boat now.



Next problem is the chainplates come through the deck and are built up about a half inch with some epoxy and fiberglass so it doesn't collect water flush from the deck.

I'm trying to figure out how to clean up the edges and make it look nice and then seal it up. Right now my plan is to fill and fair, prime and paint, then seal around the chainplate with 3M 4000. Any other ideas how to make this look like a quality job? I don't want to cut it flush to the deck because of the added likelyhood of water intrusion.

Re: Teak Deck Replacement with Nonskid

I think I'd consider cutting it flush, leaving an 1/8" gap around the whole thing, then worry about how to re-seal it. I'd probably go with either Butyl or the UV version of 4200. You want something that can handle a good bit of movement.

Re: Teak Deck Replacement with Nonskid

I would remove the turnbuckle and then build it up 1/2" with some G10 with a slot for the chainplate. Size the G10 to the size of the cover plate at the top and wider at the bottom. Epoxy it in place. Add sealant around the slot and compress it with the cover plate. This will prevent water from pooling at the chainplate base. Like the pics below.

Butyl would be my sealant choice.

Re: Teak Deck Replacement with Nonskid

mitiempo: I like it. I usually walk around the marina looking for the way things were done on other boats, but your pictures show the whole process. Why did you reccomend the G10 epoxy? I've been using Westsystem for everything else and have never worked with G10 before.

G10 FR4 Sheets, Panels & Boards | Cross Nail Laminates

It's pre fabbed f/g 'panel'. Also available at McMaster-Carr, I think...

Re: Teak Deck Replacement with Nonskid

Well, the project continues. I've been really busy. Here's the big bad update on the decks. I'll start with a link to the youtube video walkaround:

All the teak is off and the toe rail is almost ready to varnish. I'm going to put 6 coats of Epiphanes varnish on the toe rail. Then I can mask off the bottom and sand it prior to sealing the seam around the toe rail with 3M 4000. I've got to figure out how much I need. I'm thinking I'll go through 4 tubes on the inside and 2 tubes on the outside of each rail, so that's 12 tubes, or a case.

After everything is smooth and I think I'm ready to prime I'll drill holes and test fit the deck hardware. I want all the hardware can go back in the same place it came from and I'm not guesstimating where it came from and things are lopsided on deck. At this point I'll purchase new bolts, washers and nuts to replace the old bronze or stainless hardware that's now too long.

Next I'll prime the deck with about a gallon of Pre-Kote, then paint around the edges of everything with white Interlux Brightsides to match the cabintop, then roll the Durabak.

Finally I'll reinstall all the hardware, get the rig tuned and go sailing! I've still got about a month's worth of work to do!

Re: Teak Deck Replacement with Nonskid

WOW! Now I understand the $70K price tag the owner of a 44 footer paid for new teak decks.

Impressive work! Looks like you'll be buying your dockmates a lot of beers.

I think I need to share this with the SO so those boats we've looked with teak decks won't be so tempting.

Great job n8!

Also cant see the video..

I feel for you n8kraft, we just got done with essentially the same project.
part 1 S/V Moitessier...: Decked Out

It took forever and all I can say is that Im glad I don't have to do it ever again. It looks like you guys are making good progress so far and Im looking forward to seeing the finished product
