    I'm not sure how much weight is added with the teak. Not to much, it's an absolute guess but I would say 50 pounds or so

    How's that teak floor in the cockpit as far as getting slippery?

    Do you have a non-skid or is it just the wood floor?

    Sportfishes use teak for a reason. It's comfortable (more so than nonskid), grips well, doesn't glare, easy on the knees (there's a joke in there somewhere), easy to clean..

    Yea

    teak deck = amazing feel on your feet, v comfortable, relatively low maintenance

    polished teak = very pretty & lots of work to maintain right

    I worked on a sportfish boat one summer with a good amount of teak. Got to see both sides!

    Skiff also has 6 shotgun style, under gunnel rod tubes. Makes it supper easy to grab a rods from under the gunnel without having to get off the front deck.

    I guess that's the better question. I'm looking to rebuild an old skiff and want to do old school style with a teak cockpit floor, teak toe rails, teak rod holders, etc and I'd like to keep it that nice tan/brown and polished a bit.

    My dad has a sailboat with a lot of natural teak that ages to that nice grayish color but that's not what I want.

    I'm doing a lot of research though and it looks like if you keep it oiled it shouldn't fade.

    I've had a few boats with teak: cockpit soles, toe rails, hand rails, cabin doors etc.  Sun and humidity are it's enemies. Your best bet is to keep it natural and un-coated but it requires lots of cleaning, lots of water and the ability to keep sun off it as much as possible.   

    Once you start using teak oil or any other sealer, you'll have to remove the product if you want to clean it or re-apply the sealer/oil. 

    Sorry for the derail…GLWS!

    The teak floor is a small added maintenance. By small I mean an extra 10 mins. There are no raw cuts to absorb moisture as net30 stated. The cockpit is about 3'x8'. the console and toe rail are polyed so no added maintenance there, just keep it out from under the docks!

    Go hose off your gel coat net30

    I personally love the look and feel of natural teak.  It gives the boat a warm rich feeling.  All in all, that's not much teak to speak of and if the boat is stowed in the garage or undercover, that stuff will last for eons.  You guys that are complaining about teak, I get it, but those boats you talk about sit outside on the water and/or in direct sunlight 24/7/365.  So yes, epoxy or farnish will crack, chip and haze over and dry out.  Un-finished teck will dry out and fade.  Big deal, you deal with it and that's the trade-off of having that cool edge on your boat.

    For the price of that boat and as little of teak as it has, you can afford to pitch it and install it new every 5 years if you have to.  But keeping it under cover will avoid that so you don't have to and can enjoy that warm fuzzy feeling of it being in the boat and getting those choice compliments as well.   ;)

    Also, for you guys that love the look but don't like the maintenance of real teak, have the synthetic teak installed (Nu TEak, Flexiteek and many others). Hose it off, leave it the sun, whatever. Basically brain dead proof and still looks good.

    Nice skiff Spruce, but a lil pricey for a used 16ft tiller skiff.  Just sayin.....    :-?

    Thanks Bay. If you consider what it cost to have one built, I feel like it's a fair price
     
  17. I owned the black Skull Island side console. I always loved the teak skiff.

    Skull Island is a fine fishing skiff. Fit and finish is of the finest quality. (yacht quality)

    It will sell. luck is not needed.

    BTW- sorry if I hijacked the thread with the teak talk. I'd pay $20K for that skiff but I just sold my Gheenoe and am moving to something bigger for the family.

    At this point the only way the rib will let me have 2 boats is if I find a project hull and do the restoration myself.

    And this boat sent me from 6 to midnight:
