A couple of the plugs in the teak deck on Patience needed renewing last weekend.
I ended up replacing 23. As often happens once you start a job it just grows.
The plugs/bungs had been originally set in epoxy so, naturally, each screw was a B******d to remove and the job took all day. However the point of this note was that those plugs set in epoxy the ‘glue’ had either failed or was in the act of failing. those bungs set in recorsinol are fine. The boat (and deck) were built by students in 1990. Conclusion:- epoxy on deck only lasts 10 years.
