Coming up roses

The deck has been sanded and, after all the effort that went to putting in new wood, prepping and sikaflexing, it is really looking amazing. Given the age and the variable quality of some of the planks, they have some up pretty well and look rather smart. 

  
Some close up shots of the seams. The teak is orange when first sanded but quickly weathers down to a silvery grey. The sections of new wood are inevitably neater but the overall look is pretty smart and uniform.

   
    
 
It has all been pelleted to cover the bolts where existing pellets had popped out, and to cover any random holes, and the extra beading is round the hatches. This means that finally – FINALLY!!- she is watertight!!
