Tom and Barb Koehl

Capn Tom, it looks like I'm going to go the same route. My W32 teak decks were nasty and I have a couple of small areas that I suspect have core damage. I spent about 100 hours removing the old caulking, taking it all down to good wood, but now I think it's just best to pull the entire deck, repair the core issues, epoxy the screw holes, and glue the teak back down. Hopefully, after running the backsides through a planer to get the bedding off I'll still have plenty of wood and it will just be a numbered jigsaw puzzle with new bungs but no screws to worry about. I had considered 5200 to bond it, but now I'm not so sure. Is the "fitting epoxy" superior for this job?
