Teak windows, need to make 100% waterproof

Postby Seif911 » April 6th, 2014, 9:19 am

Morn' All,
Ok so the windows are glass :). The teak surrounding the windows...so with my 1977 Carver sandwiches these windows in teak wood and added weep holes for draining. It is not in horrible shape and only 2 areas that I will need to replace. I will be removing the inside boards, and then the glass. My question is... What next???

I can do a light sanding job and then cetol. This will make it look pretty but, what should I use to sandwich the wood back together? Glue, PL400, silicone, lots of options, just not sure. Also, many years ago I used cetol on a swim platform and my next step...I just can't remember. I can't remember if that was it or if I added a urethane on top of that to make it a gloss finish.

The whole goal here it to fix the wood, make it look pretty and above all, it has the let the water follow the wood track out the weep holes and not follow the wood joints, through the cracks and back into the boat.

Any help or ideas are appreciated. This is a major problem that I have to fix!
