Term for this kind of deck?

Post by Lamar » Sun Jan 08, 2006 11:47 am

:?: It's beautiful. If I have the name, I should be able to search it out of the archives. I interested in how you build it. Below is the link to a picture of it. Thanks. Lamar.

It is teak wood strips with caulking between each strip. Usually polysulfide caulk. Kind of like a hardwood floor in a house, it is layed over the structural deck.

I've never heard it called anything other than a teak deck.

You're right, they are beautiful! A bit pricey but real nice.

Stay tuned and you will see a mahogany planked bright finihsed deck like above on an 0B15. My planks are cut at 3/4 wide by little less than 1/2, the gap will be filled with mahogany flour/epoxy layed over 1/4 marine ply.

Do a search on teak deck, planked teak deck and so forth. I have some designs and pictures of larger boats that will blow your mind with things like star bursts, compass roses so on. Its very hard work, takes tons of time but when done correctly is the pretty thing you will see on a boat IMHO.

Here is a link to a West System article on a customer job. Of course you would subsititute Marine Epoxy or System Three from Jacques, but the process is the same!!

:oops: Thanks again. Having a sailing background for the last twenty years, I should have known that! I suppose I was trying to make it harder than it was. I've been trying to learn all the terms around here I guess I have overkill. :D

For a cheap alternative, especially where you don't want to add extra weight to the boat, you can rout narrow/shallow grooves in the surface layer of your deck plywood and then fill the grooves with an epoxy/graphite mix, leaving the plywood surface bright. That's what I'm planning to do on the LB22 - when I can eventually afford to get started on it! :roll:

That's Dr Elkins's boat fitted with a teak deck.
Real teak is heavy but you can buy much ligther teak veneer to glue on top of regular plywood.
