You might have a handle on your hull. But can you handle
repairs to your deck? Few other areas on your boat will be as important to its
overall look and function than a high-quality deck. To help keep your deck in
top shape, here are a few key boat deck repair products to keep in mind.
Teak Boat Deck
Maintenance & Repair
Teak is a popular material for boat decks. If you want your
boat to look its best, you’re probably going to have to deal with it at some
point or another. That doesn’t have to be a challenge.
We recommend browsing through our Teak Oil and Sealer
products to see if there are some ways you can prevent damage to
your teak and maintain it properly. For example, our Teak Brightener
Quart is a great way to repair the damage of dirt, grease, and oil
stains to give your teak a “like-new” finish without investing too much of your
time and labor into the deck.
Dry rot can be one of the most confounding issues that boat
owners have to deal with. Add in the possibility that
the dry rot can be set in deep into the wood, making it even more difficult to
reach, and boat owners will pull out their own hair stressing over whether they
should replace the wood altogether.
Fortunately, there are ways to combat dry rot. Try the Git-Rot
Kit. This unique solution uses a two-part liquid epoxy that
penetrates the rot and gets through much of the wood through capillary action.
This helps bolster the strength of the wood and even makes it possible to sand,
drill, and screw into the wood as if it were brand new.
Caulking Supplies For
If you want to make sure that your deck is as leak-free as
possible, you’ll eventually have to caulk it. And once you caulk it, you want
some assurance that the caulk will create a tight, waterproof seal that will
last for some time.
That’s why we recommend Life-Calk.
Life-Calk can be used on teak decks and bed decks. It will bond to a number of
materials including fiberglass, wood, metal, glass, and even itself. It’s
versatile enough to keep in your boat deck repair kit even if you’re not sure
what you’ll need it for.
