I have had no experience with a teak laid deck. My question is how long would you expect a teak deck to last?
Teak decks should never be pressure washed.
Pressure washing gives a quick beautification, at the expense of wearing away the teak.
This applies to other teak on board as well as to to teak decking.
If you look at other teak planking, including cap-rails, hand rails etc., that have been pressure washed, there will be significant grooving of the wood in the direction of the grain.

The lifetime of teak is directly proportional to the usage of pressure washers.

Re: Teak deck life question

I have several teak deck replacement jobs coming up. I'll have to post on them here. There are a whole lot of boats out there which are overdue for this process. I'm happy to be able to do it for a whole lot less than $50k!

Approximately how much would it cost to replace the teak on a 54ft Oyster?

Re: Teak deck life question

As I am now 72, you can have all future deck jobs. That is some of the hardest (on the back) work I have ever done. Installing a pre-fab'ed deck, from someone like TDS, is the preferred method, now. Price is likely $50+/sq ft.
