Some pictures from our deck and hand rail rework.

Postby AndyH » Wed Jan 31, 2018 4:44 pm

When we bought our 1995 42' classic in August the decks had water in the deck cores. Made the decision to pull the teak and go with Soft Sand nonskid. While the boat was in the shop, we also decided to remove the teak hand rail and install a stainless steel one. I also removed the varnish from the cap rail as we're going to go natural there. I'm not a fan of varnish on exterior in the Pacific Northwest without a boat house. We're mostly there. Here are pictures...

Very nice indeed and so practical in our PNW. Some will say it detracts from the value, but I disagree. Once you've owned a GB for a long time and laboured keeping the bright work to an acceptable level your approach has a lot of attraction. Unicorn, being a 1981, has exterior teak where ever you look. It takes me almost 40 hours to prep, tape and apply 2 coats, not to mention the sore knees and aching back.

After the teak decks were removed we just had the top layer of fiberglass removed from several areas and the core dried out quite quickly (several weeks in a relatively warm dry building). We checked it with a moisture meter before replacing the fiberglass skin.

Andy, if you don’t mind my asking, would you share who did the deck work and how much it cost, approximately?

We had it done at Cap Sante Marine in Anacortes and it ran about $68K for the deck overhaul. There was a lot of work to do and they did a good job. The original quote was for quite a bit less than that and I'm not sure if I quite would have committed to all of it if I'd known up front what it was going to end up costing but isn't that often the case?

Oh and the railing was done at Pacific Marine Fabrication also in Anacortes and it's not quite done but is looking like about $11k when it's complete. Aaron did a good job. I think it would have been more if he hadn't used the original stantions. I'll post more pictures of that when complete. I'll be glueing and screwing the rest of the railing on tomorrow.

I've removed the headliner in the boat and I'm going to be doing the ceiling in wood.. I'm planning to use some of the teak to trim out the wood. I probably won't be using all of it though. I sold one of the gates to another GB owner as his old one had fallen off.

Congratulations on a great boat! I think I recognize it from Portland, OR. Too bad she isn't still in our area, seems like most of the boats sold here are going north.

Andy,
If you are going to replace the fabric headliner with wood I would be happy to share my experience doing that project. I just replaced my headliner with T and G cedar planking. Added 12 Imtra lights and Teak battens every 27 inches.
Relatively easy project and a big improvement over the old fabric Headliner.
I have photos if you would like them.

I would love to see any photos you have as I've been a bit hesitant to start such a large project. Let's just say it's a lot easier to tackle smaller projects than getting going on this one. OTOH it is nice to have toilets that work. I'm leaning more toward lapped joints rather than tongue and groove since T&G can be such a pain if I ever need to remove a few strips. Why did you pick cedar? Would certainly smell good but I'm wondering about the pinkish color (at least up here in the Pac Northwest the cedar can be quite pink) and the softness as it dries.

Andy,
I chose cedar T&G, painted white by the way, because of the thickness, a true 1/4 inch, and the width of the planks. I had initially sprayed the cedar in my garage before installation. After it was up my wife decided it was too glossy so I rolled a coat of satin finish over the glossy white and she is happy with the finish. The cedar was primed with two coats of Sherwin Williams pro block so I am not too worried about bleed thru.
I could not find any lap material that would bend comfortably over the radius of the overhead stringers, most of the material available was 5/8 or thicker.
I understand that if I ever had to remove any of this it would be a major issue.
I would try and post some photos but they are very large, I would be happy to send them to you via email. PM me you email address and I will send them out today.
Also I will be at the GB rendezvous in May and you are welcome to come aboard any time.
J.J.J.
