Filling large holes in teak rub rail
Iím restoring a boat with good amount of dock rash (hurricane damage). Entire sections of rub and cap rail had to be cut off and replaced. The work is still going on but in the end I will have a bunch of dings and gouges in teak that I have to somehow fill in and fair in preparation for some sort of final coat of varnish. I was thinking of using epoxy thickened with short chopped fiberglass. Some surfaces are horizontal (cap rail) and some - actually most of them are - vertical (rub rail). The rub rail will be topped with 1.25 inch wide stainless steel rub strip.
Any better ideas?
