"Ordered the Burmese teak today $20.50 board ft for 5/4"

Sounds like you will be into this job for only $1000 in teak, plus another $1k in fasteners. For 2 boat bucks you will see a huge benefit to your boat!

I bought 150 ft of 5/4 and I hope this is enough . Plan on building 2 new wheel house sliding doors also.Lumber,fasteners,caulking ,varnish and all the hidden stuff that pops up it will probably be more like 5 boat bucks.

The old cap rail is completely off. We took off about 3 pounds of screws (saving them for scrap yard).The rail had some teak on it but mostly mahogany. Under the rail attached to the hull was a wild mix of mahogany,white pine, douglas fir two or three kinds of caulk and epoxy. some of it was a real PITA. I had a small section about 18" where the 5200 took some glass with it.the last pic is of a handmade small draw knife that wound up being the tool of choice to peel off some of the stubborn wood that split away and was still hanging on with epoxy or 5200 .I figure a clean shaving would be more popular that grinding dust at the marina.

Hey Tony
This is my first attempt at laminating and bending to a jig. This project has been keeping me up at night . Are you a woodworker yourself ?

About 80% of cap rail stringers are dry fitted in place. Doors are taken off and boarded up . Going to make new doors and new tracks. also have the visor cowling off getting ready for paint. Looks like I might have to laminate the curved sections of the cap rail to help on yield. Anybody got any pics they want to share of their cap rail scarf joints?

Here's a picture of one of Hobo's. We have 2 on each side. I opened them up with a Dremel tool and used TDS caulk. There were originally epoxied but there was to much movement at the joint and a finish wouldn't last. The cap rail is 4" wide.

I looked at others on the dock and all were similar to the Grand Banks in the second picture but the cap rail's were only a few inches wide.

Thanks Larry ,
I like that stile joint. I plan on leaving a little bit of a space on mine to allow for caulk . I put a new cap rail on my old sailboat and did not allow space for caulk and had to go back and open up the joint . Not an easy thing to do.
About how wide is your anchor platform ? I' m rebuilding mine and my old one was to narrow only about 8" or so .

Marty: Here are some pictures. It's 3" thick and is horizontally thru bolted and plugged in 4 places not including the anchor rollers. Hope these help. If you need more dimensions we're on the boat and it's a nice day here.
