RE: fiberglass decks??

My vessel under the previous owner, had the rotted teak decking removed by a timber boat-building yard, and instead of going to the extreme and unnecessary extent of trying to gouge out all the old dampish core and replacing it, just sealed over it with fibreglass cloth/resin and then a thick layer of treated marine ply, then more fibreglass layers, finally with non-skid finish.. Worked well - no moisture ever came thru (now 10 yrs ago), and still nice and stiff deck.
