[Amel Yacht Owners] Changing companionway veneer.


James Alton
 

Eric,

   That is an interesting and creative solution to replace part of the veneer, thanks for sharing.  While the idea of having the slider on the bench to work on sounds appealing, your method could sure save me a lot of time over removal of the hardtop that could be delegated to other more important projects.  No rush but when you have the time to send me the photos, it would be great to see.

Best,

James,

You do not have to remove the sliding companionway or the hard dodger to replace the veneer.

If you send me your email I will send you photos of how I did mine.

Basically you remove the stop at the bottom of the companionway door . Then the door will slide all the way up to the dodger.

You can then use a router to remove the veneer and put new veneer on. Of course what is in the track cannot be changed, but you can’t see it. 

Mine looks beautiful after 5 or 6 years.

Fair Winds

Eric,

 

   The exterior teak veneer has delaminated and I want to replace or reface the panel.   I would also like to improve the exterior seal during this project.  

 

Best,

James,

Why are you removing the companionway slider?

I remember to have read here some time ago of a way to remove the slider without removing the dodger. Somehow it seems to be possible to open the tracks and get the slider out. 

Cannot remember details, though, but maybe the search function here may help.

There is no need to remove the tracks. The job can be done with the slider in place. I have photos if you wish.
