im looking for a used montauk and many I looked at had small cracks in the floors is this something that can be fixed? Any suggestions on restoring weathered teak?

The cracks you see are probably just in the gelcoat, not sure if they could be fixed economically, nor whether they're worth the bother. Before trying any harsh cleaners on the teak, just try a couple coats of teak oil and see if it comes back to life. Mine did quite nicely, although it wasn't really bad to begin with.

Hi again ! Based on my experience looking for Montauks too, there seemed to be a correlation between the amount of use a boat had and the amount of hairline cracks in the floor. I found some decent Montauks in my quest, but those darn cracks just stuck in my mind when I was contemplating a particular boat.
