I came across the pictures and descriptions of Recovery's restoration, including painted faux teak coamings and transom and foward hatches. I would be interested in learning how he achieved that, since I'm doing a restoration, and what is one more project? A forum search did not turn up any additional information.

Know this is late info but I ripped 1/4" x 1 3/4" strips of clear teak and glued them onto my hatch covers. I used a grinder with a sanding disc to carefully grind off the nonskid and rough the surface up for WEST epoxy to hold the pieces in place I used duct tape and weights. I added a bit of microfibers to thicken the epoxy a bit for better gap filling and greater surface bonding. I used teak oil and cleaned the teak with salt water on occasion and a soft brush and reapplied the teak oil. I've also done transoms this way with 6 inch pieces and V-grooved the joints by putting a 45 degree angle on each mating edge and a 1/4 round on the perimeter edges. I stopped the teak about 1 inch from the perimeter of the transom all the way around. Looks absolutely beautiful. The transom teak gets varnished.
