experiences with replacing teak deck, 2000 prostar 205

I decided to replace my rubberized swim deck - it was looking pretty ratty - it was already covered when I bought it last year. Posting some pics here in hopes that it helps anyone else wanting to do the same thing.

teak cost, rough wood: $275
hours spent: 12
stainless screws cost: $25

I wanted to simply reuse the existing deck, but there was no way to get the glue off. It took me a long time just to pull off the amount of covering you can see in the pics.

It turned out ok, but I haven't put it in the water yet, so the jury is still out. It's definitely thicker than the old deck- the wood was planed to 7/8 instead of 3/4 so it's a little sturdier.

I have one and I'll post a pic, it basically keeps boards and skis from smacking the transom

That is next, actually - I wanted to put it in the water first though

I did use a left over slat to add a transom to my buddy's Centurion.
