Sodar, Your saying I should use the teak deck on the boat but fix the glass one and store it?

Yeah... or just store the old fiberglass for another day. The teak is more user friendly, but maybe someday you will want to use the original platform, maybe someone with the same vintage boat will need it, etc. Basically my vote is for using the teak and keeping the fiberglass in a safe spot.

I am with you Sodar, less work to do on the teak I have to make some hangers up so I can put the teak deak on. I will store the glass deck unless anyone is looking for one I will sell this one to them. I have teak on my American skier boat and it is nice looking.

You could really whore it up and throw a set of folding brackets on the boat!

WOW them there are sweet set up. I am going to look into what a set would run for this boat. That would sure make some nice room to move around.

I got the dash all cleaned up. From the date on the inside it reads 1/8/79. and still in great shape. I am sure there not many around.

If it were mine I would consider the teak deck. Its hard to beat a well cared for teak deck.

My boat came with a glass deck covered in the same carpet as the interior carpet. Its very functional, but not especially pretty.

I am impressed with the condition of the dash. although I have to lump you in with all the other guys and their new boats. JK.

LOL Mr.MC, Your deck looks good nice boat.I am supprised that the squril's didn't eat it all up like they did the seat's. Ok well I am going to put the teak deck on the boat. I am working on getting the boat out of my shop and get it to my house this weekend and do all the clean up that needs to get done.

I sent over an email to see what it would cost to get the "HO OUT KIT" for the boat. What do you guys recomend that I do with all the old deck hole's so that they will be sealed up?
