PlasTeak Teak & Holly Flooring

Does anyone here actually have this stuff on their boat?
How well does it hold up to everyday wear and tear.
The price is not bad - Approx. $8/Sq. FT.
I can get Teak and Holly Plywood for Approx $4/Sq. Ft. in 1/4" thick. For the amount I want, the price is not an issue. I was just wondering which would suit me better. Probably take me about the same time to install either.
Some of the other brands run over $30/Sq.Ft. Those are out of the question. For that price I would rather have the plywood.

My experience is if you use the 1/4 stuff bond it to 3/8 to 1/2 ordinary ply beforehsnd. The thinness means the hatch edges etc are very fragile. I removed some of it and went back to 1/2
