Mind the Gap! No, not the London Underground, but the 3 to 10mm caulk-filled gap between teak planks. These narrow seams are critical expansion and contraction joints that must move and flex with the vessel while keeping the deck watertight. Caulking adheres to teak plank sidewalls and remains elastic. It must be temperature-resistant for all weather conditions and resistant to chemicals and UV degradation. After sanding, caulking must maintain a first-class appearance. Teakdecking Systems SIS 440 Teak Deck Caulking is industry-leading with a proprietary formulation, installed globally on more than 50,000 decks. Proper seam preparation, application techniques, and procedures are available in a 16-page guide: www.teakdecking. com/caulk/
