Re: Replace deck teak with something other than wood?

Anything but that plastic "teak". As I overheard in a traditional boat yard "That plastic stuff's awful; sticks out like a whore in church"...

I would disagree, it looks well, other then the fact that it never discolours. I found it gets hooter then real teak in the summer heat in the Med, so hot it was beginning to burn my bare feet.

Thanks for all the feedback and suggestions. I'll post some photos when the weather clears up so you'll get a better idea how bad (or not so bad) the teak is.
