The floor came in 5 crates and went together like a puzzle. The best product comes from Teakdecking.com they are the OEM supplier for Searay.

    How is this assembled? Is there a wood backing? Also how did you secure this to the deck.

    Teak Decking Systems makes the floor at their manufacturing facility in Sarasota, Fl. Completely laid out and caulked. You can have your choice of white or black caulk. All teak is epoxied to a fiberglass backer and then shipped in a create. You take it out of the creates and reassemble it on your cockpit floor. They had the template because they are the OEM supplier for Searay. Basically, I wrote a check. Real easy. It gets screwed and epoxied to the cockpit floor. If you are good with woodworking, you can do this.

    I looked into Fexteek plus all the others, they all have great faux teak products. They are all very hot!!! I almost burned my feet, I never wear shoes on a boat. Real wood is so much cooler in the sun. The price point is more than faux teak, but not that much, worth a look.

    Did you do your swim platform also? If so do you have picture of it? The whole project looks like what I've been wanting to do just trying to find the right source.

    Thanks

    No, I didn’t do the swim platform. For a couple of reasons, the first one being maintenance. The swim platform is always outside uncovered in the sun getting beat up. The second was the additional cost. It just didn’t make sense. But, then again, that’s me. You may want to do it. My cockpit teak is always covered and pretty easy to keep clean. Outside it would be a constant battle, it would always be dirty and grey.

    I dealt with Mike at Teakdecking Systems in Sarasota, Fl.
    Great to work with. I had them ship the floor to my marina, they happened to have a tech that worked for Marinemax at one time. He was a installer for the teak floors at Marinemax. I got lucky, but anyone with some good working skills can do it. I was going to install it myself, but did not have the time.

    Thanks. I talked to Matt there today and he is looking into templates for my boat. Sounds like a project I could do. He gave some good tips on installation. There is a boat at the lake here I’m going to try to track down to look at.

    That good, they are VERY helpful. Also, if your doing it yourself, when putting on the sealer use either their sealer or “Wonder Teak” sealer. They are both water based and easy to use. They say 2 coats, I do 3 coats. It also needed 3-5 days to completely dry after sealing because of humidity in Florida.

    Well I got my quote and this project may have to wait a little while. It is nice and still on my list but got moved down for now. I was told it would take two weeks to install this in the cockpit and swim deck. The cockpit alone wasn’t to bad but the swim deck is the tough part to swallow right now. Someday!
