Re: Bringing an Old Deck Back To Life

Is this what you're doing to your boat? What kind of boat did you buy?

Re: Bringing an Old Deck Back To Life

KKMI is a boatyard in Richmond, California. I am sure that Julie found the clip while surfing the net. KKMI is a very high end yard. I would guess that the redecking job went well into to the five figures and possibly as much as Julie's entire boat budget. If anyone is interested, they are selling the Santana, Humphrey Bogart - Lauren Bacall's old boat.

Re: Bringing an Old Deck Back To Life

I'm curious, did the craftsmen have to steam bend the teak? or could those thin strips be muscled in?

Re: Bringing an Old Deck Back To Life

I posted this because I thought it was interesting how they went about the process and just thought I'd share it.

Re: Bringing an Old Deck Back To Life

Beautiful job. And to think - in 25 years you can do it again.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Gives you something to look forward to.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
