Welcome aboard. How was the old wood secured to the fiberglass? If it was screwed down you could have water leaking into the core. That is an entirely different problem. If the glass is good and the core is good then I would use thickened epoxy to glue the new wood down. Wipe the wood with acetone first to get any oil off the wood.

Leon, welcome aboard, what failed leading to replacement? If it was the epoxy bond, Sika 298 is elastic and might do better. Probably easier to use and apply, and no mixing.
FYI, a Sunrunner is a single deck sports type boat, not unlike the one in Comodave`s avatar.

Another solution could be something like SeaDek. Donít know what is available there.

If you choose epoxy I had some good results with Thixo from total boat for smaller jobs and you can get it in brown.

Screwing teak to the real deck underneath gave way to gluing it down,I think usually with a sealant type glue. You could search TDS Decking Systems, they make specialist caulking sealants similar to Sika, check their videos etc for information.

I got this off Teak Deck Systems website.

Choosing the correct adhesive used during installation is one of the most important steps. TDS uses its flexible, proprietary two-part epoxy that ensures the adhesion of the subdeck and teak deck. The deck is then fastened using either a pressure bar or vacuum bag method. This step must be applied evenly so the adhesive can cure, and the teak can adequately adhere to the subdeck.

I believe their caulk is for the seams not glueing it down. I have used their TDS440 caulk before for seams.
