Sanding a teak deck is part of a vessel’s maintenance program. So it’s essential to know why to sand, when not to sand and how to sand. The primary reason for sanding a teak deck relatively smooth is to allow moisture and contaminants to run off the decks rather than become entrapped on the deck surface. Teak, like all woods, can decay. The softwood between the grain lines wears and deteriorates faster than the hardwood of the grain lines. As a result, the wood develops a raised grain or rough surface.
In this short course you will learn how to sand teak decks using the appropriate equipment.
