Being new at this, we are a bit puzzled (actually a lot) with epoxy, resin, putty, adhesive and wanting to figure out what product to use and when. Is there a tutorial somewhere that will make it plain as day?
If this seems difficult, considering hiring a carpenter to do the job.* It will be second nature to him/her.* It doesn't have to be a "marine" carpenter.

RE: Teak Door is becoming unglued

Thanks for the abundance of good advice. We bought a pipe clamp and mixed some epoxy and put it all together. Unfortunately we didn't read the West System tutorials on-line until after we applied the epoxy. We used a 1:1 type epoxy but it was more of a filler than an adhesive epoxy. Anyway, we'll know tomorrow morning. If it doesn't work, at least we'll know the right way to do it next time.

There's nothing like getting to know your boat.

RE: Teak Door is becoming unglued

Since it was a filler epoxy you might want to go ahead and glue in as suggested two plugs (Tightbond III would be fine for this) or countersink two long stainless screws and glue teak plugs to cover. Chances are however the "filler" epoxy will be fine and this project at least is in the rear mirror.

In this case, it's not so much a "boat" project, it's a carpentry project.* You could easily have the same problem with a door (or cabinet door) in your home.

Just an update - the door came out great.* It has been cetoled and you would hardly know there had been a repair.

Thanks to everyone for their comments and advice.

RE: Teak Door is becoming unglued

that's a small picture (even if you click on it) but it looks great! Since we have the same boat, what did you have to do to take the door off?

RE: Teak Door is becoming unglued

The only photo we had on hand was from the iphone and that how it came out. Next time we need to use the camera.
There is a strip of wood screwed into the base that holds the door. Once we took off the strip of wood the door could be pulled towards you and removed. It was easier than we thought it would be. If only the windows had a similar magic button. We can't believe the only way to replace glass is to remove the wooden frame from the side of the boat. What a design faux pas.

There have been several posts on repairing the rollers or sliders on our doors.* The problem is usually the rollers in the bottom of the door.* Only way to get at it is to remove the door and see what you've got under there.* Capt. Chuck's* Beach House blog is a great place to check and see that you* are looking at"

Per, we use a soft wax grease stick meant for zippers and apply it to the aluminum strip on which the wood door slides.
