Sail Life – Eradicating teak, significant hole in the boat & fantastic news – Diy boat refit





In this video clip, I remove the teak in the cockpit aboard my warrior 38 sailboat. Alos I make a significant hole in the cockpit and make your mind up to remove the previous propane locker.

  1. Mads, you have the correct attitude on those who wish to be so negative. Dump them. Who cares. Keep only in the company of positive people. Surround yourself with success and positivity and you will also be likewise. I thank you for sharing your experineces with us all. God Bless you both.

  2. Re: the propane locker. Other boaters traveling the world on youtube have found that not all propane bottles are the same size and not all fittings are the same either. RAN sailing had many issues trying to refill their Swedish propane setup in the Caribbean islands. If it's not too late, you might want to keep those lockers for storage and a secondary bottle down the road.

  4. Tear it out! You've gone this far, why not? At the very least, there'll be a few videos worth of material on it.

  5. Wetting out f/g on a piece of cardboard is a great way to ensure it's wet enough with out making a mess, but then roll it up before you apply it. It's easier to unroll and stick to your surface in small increments than trying to carry the piece and applying it all at the same time. Hope that make sense…

  6. Hey Mads-Two observations about Warrior sailboats: They weren't very conscientious about details, and if I wanted to buy one it would be yours…:)

  7. I have to admit when I've been doing me resto their have been times when I've found something and thought 'WTF were they thinking when building this thing!' On the whole it's a good solid boat but their have been some seriously weird constructions going on. Just like your false bilge. Why would you fit a false bilge in the first place is beyond me?

  13. Eeek. Maybe those teak boards swelled up at one time and pulled and broke the fiberglass apart?
    Thanks for the video!

  17. Hi Mads
    Are they really cracks or were the caulk seams between the teak planks cut out too deep when renewing them? When i removed my teak deck i had these 'cracks' too. They are not deep, perhaps you can cut out a piece of laminate with such a crack so you can see how deep they really are. Good luck closing the big holes

  21. Hi Mads, if it helps we had a similar issue with the cracks lining up with the screws as your cockpit area. If you drill a few 20mm holes you can see the state of your core and if it's (hopefully) ok they're easy to fill in again. Keep up the good work it's much appreciated.
