Bud,
The new line on teak did not work out. So, I cleaned up the old strips for possible re-use.
Also, I opted out of teak plywood and went with Lloyd's approved marine plywood.
I cleaned up the old teak strips today. Some had epoxy on edges, old caulk on edges, etc.... That leaves about 1/2" of lagniape in the strips set side by side in their 23 3/8" setting area.
Do the strips need to be touching side by side when they are screwed and glued? If I equally space out the 13 strips I'll probably have 1/8" space between each of them before the caulk grooves are recut.
Should I just buy new teak and start anew on the strips? I have another teak supplier lined up.
Thanks in advance.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
