Ah, I think I combined two thoughts. There are only a couple of small spots that need the caulk replaced because it is leaking. All the caulk on the entire 54ft deck is standing proud.

I might just wait it out, but it's making cleaning harder and the proud caulk keeps water from running off as easily as it should.

Trim teak caulk

It is sticking up proud on the side decks. The teak is in very good shape. There are maybe two small corners of caulk that need to be redone, so it would be premature to redo it all. It is just high enough that it is hard to scotch brite the decks down with salt water, I'm really just scrubbing across the caulking.

Any high volume trimming tricks? Getting down on hands and knees with an X-acto knife or single edge razor blade is a non-starter. Way too much.
