Teak Decks

August 30, 2013

Some of you have been asking what we actually do on the boat all day. I’d like to say that I  sit in tue hammock reading. And I do,  sometimes. But more often we actually work. And to prove it, here is Marc fixing up the deck.
Most people put this weird rubbery stuff between their teak planks, but we use a type of epoxy which lasts longer than rubber and creates a better bond between the wood and the fibre glass. Basically,  we scraped the old shit out, mixed up new epoxy,  lay it, waited for it to dry, then sanded it flat.
Perhaps one day I’ll remember to take a photo of what it looks like now!
