Yeah, I saw that.* I usually put*boats with teak decks at he bottom of my list, this one,*however, looked pretty nice, although you can't really see the condition of the decks in the photos.**It*would think*that with those hundreds of*screws, some of them have got to*come loose when the deck flexes and water's gonna eventually get in somewhere.
If, however, by some chance, the sub deck is not water logged, it might be worth*low balling an offer with the*teak removal as*bargaining leverage.* May not be worth the hassle though.* I posted an inquiry about*teak decks on*older boats*not too long ago, didn't get much of*a response, though.*
I'm surprised you didn't find anything in Fla.*I'm planning to start my dock walk in August in Fla.*If*you don't mind, I would like to cross reference boats on my list with ones you've already checked out. It might save me*a trip to a particular broker.
Good*hunting.***** KJ****

RE: Update for MIA Belizebill

how do you go about repairing and or replacing a leaking teak deck. Any write ups for that process that I can lay my hands on?

"how do you go about repairing and or replacing a leaking teak deck"

Tons in the archives on this board.Just look.

Plan on tossing the teak, far to costly to replace it.

If you find a boat where the "chinese composite" (plywood with a slather of glass over) is still structural , its fast and cheap, to add a few layers of GRP .

If the deck is soft , and you wish to go in blue , not brown water the cure is more costly in materials and labor.
