Teak board?

Is there a readily available product out there that looks like teak but is weatherproof, available in sheets? I'm aware of tek-teak type stuff to go on the deck but this has to be laid in "planks". I'm also aware of the stuff you get inside bigger boats but doubt this is suitable for outside on a RIB. Basically I need to make a new hatch cover that formally had tek-teak on it. Cutting a ready prepared sheet and bolting it on is going to save me a lot of time, money and hassle as opposed to getting someone to recover a bit of ply.

Presumably I would just have to route some lines in it and put some caulking in to make it look like boards?

No, it's already done! There's a shop in Cobbs Quay Marina that may even have an "off cut", saving you the expense of an 8' x 4' sheet.

If I remember their name I'll post it!

yeh, wouldn't hurt to explain what you want it for, and the fact that you want the face to be in strips with caulking between!

Tim - if it makes it any easier for you I am after the same sort of thing to go on the floor of my cabin . About 18 inches by 4ft. If they have any suitable sized 'bits' that we can both get some out of it would be easy for me to nip over and check it out/ pick up & wing over to Pompey to drop off.

Arhh this sounds like a plan. I'm after a bit about 15 inches by about 5ft. Doesn't really matter how thick. I'll give them a call!

15" x 5' and 18" x 4' isn't an offcut!

No, but it would leave a small offcut, out of an 8' x 4' sheet.

If it needs a whole sheet so be it - I bet its still cheaper than tek-dek/ flexiteak/ proper real teak ...............

Hi Pete. Sorry, totally forgot about this. The gearbox on the boat has gone so the teak hatch cover suddenly wasn't such a priority! Let me know what you find - I must purchase something.

No probs - have you got a photo of where you are trying to cover ? - just so I can get a better idea for you .

Hope you can fix/ replace it as simply as possible.

Firstly what a great company, good advice etc. For Tim the advice was the internal stuff will last about a month in the open as the glue will fall apart. They dont have sheets of external as its all to order for shape etc. I suspect the cheapest way may be to replace with treadmaster or the like, or give him a ring direct. Am happy to pick up anything you may end with and drop over......

Job Done

Got round to cutting the new floor to shape & bonding in . Much nicer than a bit of six year old Nylon carpet ! Gives what is a 'small' area a much bigger feel.
