Teak deck photo update 2 – final woodwork

Teak deck photo update 2

We’re getting very close to ending the first phase of the re-decking of our lovely Hallberg Rassy 38 ‘Nadine’. This is the ‘teak deck photo update 2’, all the teak has been laid, and just a light sand and clean out of all the slots and she’ll be ready for the next phase.

The ‘king post’ is the key feature of a teak deck which runs from bow to stern.

Next we prime the slots with an adhesion promoting clear primer, followed by application of the black caulk. These two jobs will take a full day. We are now at day 22 of the project, still a long way to go.

Teak deck photo update – with video walk-around

With just a few days to go before the woodwork on the deck is complete, I thought you might like to see the latest photographs in this “teak deck photo update”. Most photos are self explanatory, especially when referenced to earlier posts.

Here you get an idea of how many screw holes had to be filled!

Nadine-deck-laying-update_1701In the next few days, the woodwork will be finished and a final clean up before caulking will take place. Hopefully we’ll catch the moment before they start caulking the decks. Once the caulk is laid, there’ll be no walking onboard for ten days until it has cured.

Here is a video walk around I did this morning. Just the anchor lid and lazarette hatch to finish then the big clean up. I expect caulking will begin tomorrow. Exciting stuff!
