Re: 40 yr old teak decks
So I have a friend with a Baba 40 and he had his teak taken off and decks fiberglassed for $7k. That was in Rio Dulce, Guatemala. He was very happy with the work. That's what I'm basing my estimate on. You could very well be right though.
Of course the common saying for any boat project is double the budget and triple the time.
Sometimes you get lucky but itís hard to count on that. Best approach would be to get an actual quote from a local company. Which of course we know that can be hard to get. But you definitely have a point of reference.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
