Teak Decks, Cabin Sole: Construction and Installation

Methods and Techniques

There are traditional laid teak decks and a more modern method which involves vacuum bagging new decking panels over an existing deck .  When Emerald Marine employs the modern technique, we  construct our panels made to patterns from the boat in our shop. We have also installed panels made by Teak Decking Systems and employ their products in making our custom panels.   Boats we've decked include a Grand Banks '36, a Northern Marine '64, and a long distance steel cruising yacht, built on an extended tuna fishing hull.  As seen at the bottom of this entry, we have also constructed a custom teak and maple cabin sole for as part of a custom interior on a  37' Nordic Tug.

Here is a panel  laid up on scrim. The seams will be filled with black caulk and  sanded before taking it to the boat





The finished is panel ready for installation

For the cabin sole of Gandalf, a 37 foot Nordic Tug, Emerald Carpentry's James McMullen skillfully constructed solid tongue and groove teak and maple flooring and carefully fit it around furniture and hatches.
