Thanks for the tips. I took a 1/4 inch chisel and regroved each seam as I was removing the caulk (I don't think my knees will ever be the same again!). They are now 1/4" wide x 1/4" deep. My deck doesn't creak or pop, it's just feeling a bit more "giving" in a couple of small areas on the foc's'le and when I pulled the Sampson posts I found that the portside post had worked enough to let water damage the balsa core on two sides. Did the Teak Deck Systems epoxy adhesive go on easily? Did you have any problems getting your old teak deck up? I haven't tried to pull it yet and thought I might start with the small triangle just aft of the lazarette. I'm deathly afraid of damaging the teak taking it up. If I was made of money I wouldn't care, but I'm trying to stick to a reasonable budget.
