Re: Source for teak for cockpit replacement
Unless your boat is a fairly recent model (perhaps the most recent) I donít think Beneteau will supply a replacement. They no longer make a replacement for mine (Jeanneau owned by Beneteau) and my model was discontinued only 10 years ago.
I think all Beneteau group boats have decks that are make of teak systems, not individual boards. IOW, the strips are pre-attached, in a tongue and groove style, to make larger sheets of deck and cut to size. Edge and trim pieces are then made to fit. They are also fairly thin.
One option (all are pricey) is Teak Deck Systems, who will make a deck for you from a template. They can be ordered in varying thicknesses and are real individual planks, not the same as the OEM cheaper stuff. If you look up the Boatworks YouTube channel, he has a couple of episodes on making the template and installing the new deck.
I suspect, if it is similar to mine, the cockpit sections are laid into recessed cavities, so thickness may be limited.
My decks are 14 years old now and I can see a replacement on the horizon. Not fun, but an upgrade would last substantially longer than the OEM product, if cared for properly.
