Maintenance of Teak Deck
It is important to maintain the teak deck by rinsing with water and not to use any equipment that will wear out the teak and seams.
By rinsing with saltwater, you will leave a thin layer of salt, which absorbs moisture and therefore counteract drying up of the wood, mould growth and alga. Deck hardware should, however, be washed with freshwater.
It is also very important to check the seams and repair loose damages in the seams, as water under the teak deck can loosen the teak from the GRP. The seams along the cabin and around the chain plates are especially exposed.
New caulking, adhesive and primer can be ordered at X-Yachts A/S.
