the teak caprail on our W42 has been aggresively sanded over the years and a lot of the fasteners are now exposed which means obviously leaking. Bud, do you have anything to help? In my deluded dreams you would mail me the already shaped teak pieces which I would install, but then again in that world I am so rich I could just pay someone else to do all this. In a more realistic world I am wondering if you have drawings or something. Should I simply pull off the old pieces and copy them? Is there some advantages to choosing teak over aluminum or vice versa? when I pull off the cap rail, can I put down some thin roving over the hull to deck joint to seal it up before putting the new caprail on? What about just pulling out all the exposed fasteners, resetting them with new dolphinite or some such product, then sealing where the caprail joins teh deck and not pulling off the teak at all? I am sure there are lots of ideas out there and I would love to hear them!
