Tom Crank

Tom, What the hell are we all doing landlocked? I'm in Northern Kentucky. My deck peeled right up. My seam caulk was still in place so I used a utility knife to cut the caulk around the sections I had identified and took it up in large sheets. Removing the screws wasn't much fun as they were slotted so I had to do them by hand. On my boat the section aft of the lazarette was a single board with decorative caulking grooves routed in. The epoxy is a bit stiff when mixing but once it heats up a bit while activating the consistency is workable. It has the consitency of melted caramel so it is messier than West. Keep a rag and some acetone handy for quick cleanup. Open time seamed to be about an hour in direct sun 90 degrees if I got it troweled out quickly. Bottome line is this is a tough project but it doesn't require any special skill and reusing existing wood I had about $500 in the job. If you like teak decks I'd go for it.

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!
