Starboard-side table. I'll have to check how it's attached next time at the boat. This weekend???


Notice the seating is attached to the fiberglass with the teak finished up to them. Same for those that have the L-shaped settee.

OK, giving up on the L shaped seating. Will go the another route.

The tables I have seen are installed on a 2"+- round teak block and thru-bolted with some form of a back-up plate on the interior. Pretty much what I would expect and any other method of attaching would seem like a bad idea.

Ray, your teak decks look very nice. Just cleaned? Do you have something on them? Mine ('87) are in good shape but "way gray". I keep my hands off them for the most part.

Itís an old photo when the seller was trying to entice me! Iím like you, I love gray...let the teak be teak. However, I did have them re-seamed last year.

Ah, ok. I have one of those pre-sale pics as well. To be honest, I don't really love the gray. It's ok but what I do love is not having to pay for new teak or fiberglassed decks.

Pay for new teak decks.... Ha! I am sooooo funny...

As a former GB dealer I seem to recall the flybridge L-shaped settee was set atop the teak decking (but I could be wrong). Teak trim pieces were used to cover up the joint where the seat met the deck. There were at least two different seat molds used, the later mold was a little lower and had a more rounded corner. I recall building a mold and making a seat for an Eastbay 58 owner but it wasn't inexpensive.

The forward bench seats were molded in with the teak relieved around the base. You can find mid-nineties 42's with no teak on the bridge and factory pedestal chairs. No two GB's were exactly alike.

Keep in mind that in 1991 the 42 was lengthened and widened a bit making post '91 42's more desirable. Nothing wrong with pre-'91 boats though so make your decision more on condition and layout keeping in mind the normal GB worries like tanks.
