Tips for redecking.

Postby Julian on Fri Feb 06, 2015 10:38 pm

Does anyone have any advice in re-decking my boat? I'm not sure in how to remove the old deck without too much damage to bulkheads and stringers.

Hi Julian

I use a hand router. Set the dpeth of the cut exactly to the thickeness of the ply and you can run the router all around the edges. You can then run it across the deck to reveal the stringers and bulkheads. You can also use the router to strip off the gunwhale before removing the deck. I don't use any nails to put the deck down. Just clamp the outer edge and use battens across the boat to wedge down the inner edge of the deck.
