Teak Hatch Handle Repair

This teak handle was in three pieces plus a large section underneath where it mounts was gone.  I decided to glue the pieces back together and fill the voids with West System epoxy.  The first photo shows the large void that I recreated.  After the repairs and sanding I coated the whole piece with two coats of epoxy proceeded by three coats of varnish.  Once dry I installed it to the companionway hatch drilling new holes where needed.  Taking a total of two hours made for a reasonable fix to an annoying problem.  It came out great!  This is a great small example of what Swab, Inc. can do for your boat especially when on the hard during the winter months.
