Teak decking? work out where the joins and hatches are first
« on: October 13, 2012, 09:14:45 PM »
I often see stuffed up teak decking on boats, so here's my 2c worth.

Work out where the hatches, fittings (this may need you to buy these first - not in the budget yet? Then take a sheet of cardboard to the the boat shop and copy the 'foot print' of it - the part afixed to the deck, cabin where-ever and transfer to the deck etc) are all going and mark out the spacings etc, e.g. stanchions around the duckboard in my pic below.

In the pic below I'm working out where to have the hatch edges so these can be on a join in the teak decking, also working out the width I want for the teak around the teak strip decking, so it all looks tickety boo, stanchions have been worked out where I want them - mainly for boarding her whilst at the dock, I'll have an easy clip on wire for those boarding, an fishing - gotta get that Marlin aboard!
I'm having the decking going for'n aft thus those markings.....
