But times have changed. It is no longer profitable to mine the dumpsters for scraps of teak - there are none. And the sound of sanders is gone from the marina.
Now instead what you hear is the whine of the boat detailers' buffers. Boats no longer have teak on them - it's just too expensive and too hard to keep looking good. Now they are all white fiberglass, frequently buffed by that detailer's wool pad.
Progress, I guess.
