In the picture, you can see the flat teak boards; these have all lifted and come off and that's the part I'm trying to fix. You can also see that the hatch is surrounded by a teak border that I'm trying to retain.
Beautiful Boat. I believe that I would attempt to rebuild entire unit plus slides with a synthetic product, such as PlasTeak or something similar. Both my coach top handrails and companionway slides need replacing and PlasTeak is my choice of repair mediums. If PlasTeak works on these relatively small items I might try it on using it to replace my 1"X 6" covering board, also in extremis.

Pretty boat! Yeah doing a 180 here, keep the teak! it really compliments the whole look. Why the boards came off is a concern ... maybe someone needed it for their boat!

Re: Redoing Companionway hatch

Yes, I think I've about decided to go back to the original teak boards. My sense is that they came off because the glue up job loosened, allowing water in that lifted them and then they got caught in the high wind storms last spring.So I'm thinking now scrape off all the existing adhesive, put down something else, put boards on. Thanks to everyone for helping me work through this.

Flexing probably broke them loose you should be able to fasten & glue from the under side. The joints should be filled with black decking caulk that mimics when tar was used. Tom of Maine just did a project on his boat. I'll look for it.
