sealing seams of teak bottom planks on 12' skiff heidi
(haines falls, ny, usa)
Hi- I am doing some restoration work on the 12 ft skiff- heidi.
It has a lapstrake hull and flat bottom cross-planked with teak deck boards.
What should be used to seal seams on bottom before bottom paint goes on?
Boat will be in fresh water lake for season in upstate NY.
Also, should deck seams (floor, inside boat) be calked with a suitable calk for teak or will oiling the wood be sufficient.
It has not been calked previously and has been in use.
Hopefully the pictures will give a better idea of what needs to be done.
Thanks for any advice.
