Re: 40 yr old teak decks

Ever since the great recession, it seems the production manufacturers that survived, have engineered cost out of the product. That includes removing virtually all real teak, not just the side decks. Lower price point sells. I think you can buy the latest Jeanneau 54 for about the same, if not less, than my 2004 54DS sold for new. Different boats.

High end stuff is still coming out with teak decks, albeit, not universally.

Jeanneau 54DS

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
