The new owner of a Starlight 39 we have recently sold, being Rhumb from the East Coast, has asked us to strip the old teak decking plus cockpit seating and fit Flexiteek, which we are carrying out in Dartmouth.
Preparation work was more onerous than we expected, being a fully-glued deck by Bowman. Stripping the old teak was fairly easy, however removing the glue and grinding flat took a long time!
Deck and cockpit are now finished in ‘faded teak’ – see pics – we are certainly pleased with the finish and overall impressions are excellent.
