Fairey refitThis is a teak deck replacement project we carried out on Najad 390 during 2015.

 The first section of pictures show the removal of the old teak deck.



This section of pictures shows the old sealent/bonding agent being removed from the deck area, this was followed filling and fairing of the deck in preparation for the new teak deck.


The following pictures show the margins being cut and fitted in place.


Next section of work was the cutting and fitting of the new teak deck,This was carried out using stainless steel fixings and 2 pack adhesive all were glues and doweled.


After the new teak deck was fitted all the seams were cleaned and all planks taped up ready for priming.


We applied 2 layers of Clear Sikalfex primer, followed by 2 layers of Sikaflex 290DC deck caulking in all seams.


Finally all excess sika was trimmed and the deck was sanded flush
