Cockpit coaming
23.02.2019 at 19:50:11
 
Hi
I have had to remove the teak covered ply from my Trapper as it was rotting. I am talking about on the cockpit coaming/side deck where the winches are placed. Question is whether the teak/ply was needed to maintain the strength of the deck. Does anyone know? If other 240ís and 250ís were finished with non-slip rather than teak then that probably answers the question. Answers gratefully recíd.

I am least familiar with the T240/250 but would guess this teak was added by a previous owner. Certainly not a standard feature or T300 or T500/501.

Hi,
This was never standard with TS240. Only exterior woodwork is solid teak each side of companionway and across top of transom.
Suggest previous owner mod. However check he hadn't done it to reinforce around winches though this would normally be done on inside.
Cheers
Paul

Thanks. Hoped that was the case. Will add ply backing plates for deck hardware since itís all off anyway.  Smiley
