      Hi Lars! Sorry for this very belated reply! I have not been active on my site for a very very long time, too much else to do. I´d be glad to discuss your deck if this is still a question for you? Generally I think that as long as the deck is not in very poor condition, I think one should try to maintain it as long as possible. Sometimes owners use high-pressure water on the deck which rapidly destroys the deck. I never use this method for cleaning it, but rather use s spunge and some kind of cleaner (Vanish is effective). Some owners grind their decks to even it out, whick I think is also not at all advisable since this litterally eats up the deck! Moreover, I also gradually remove old screws and replace them with modern ones with a flat head which allows the screw to go deeper in the hole (after having deepened the hole carefully). This spring I renovated my Cockpit, and there I decided not to use any screws at all, only heavy duty glue. If one constantly keeps an eye ones deck, exchange ribs that may be too worn down, but keep the original ones that are in good condition, I think one can keep an original deck for a very long. I have no proof of this, but this is what I aim for since I cannot afford replacing mine. Lastly, I also think that one should not underestimate the craftmansship needed to successfully replace a deck that will last for many years. Please let me know how you are reasoning regarding your deck, and please end me some pictures if possible.

      Best,

      Christofer

    Nylig fått tak i min Vindø 40. Jeg gleder meg til vedlikehold og båt puss. Ja det er noen av de store gledene jeg har med båt. Men teakdekk er ukjent for meg.
    Dine erfaringer med Vindø 40 og din webside leser jeg med stor glede.

    Vi snakkes.

      Hejsan Öjstein,

      Och tack för ditt glada tillrop! Jag beklagar mitt sena svar, jag har varit väldigt frånvarande från denna sida under en lång tid, men nu i julledigheten har jag hittat ditt och andras meddelanden till mig. Bättre sent än aldrig! Det låter som om du vill sköta ditt teakdäck, och det kan jag verkligen bara uppmuntra. Jag har ingen expertkunskap om ämnet, men jag har gjort några arbeten allteftersom problem uppstått, och jag känner mig idag ganska trygg i vad jag bör göra då skador uppstår. Jag delar gärna med mig till dig om du vill. I våras renoverade jag större delen av min sittbrunn, och det var ett riktigt hästjobb, men jag är nöjd med resultatet. Jag kommer de närmaste dagarna lägga upp en beskrivning av hur jag gick till väga. Sittbrunnsarbetet kanske kan ge dig viss vägledning också för hur du kan göra med ditt teakdäck. Hör gärna av dig, gärna också med bilder på din båt!

      God fortsättning,

      Christofer
