I also love the feel and look of teak
decks. During the past, I've said that I didn't want any teak
on the exterior of any boat we had... but now I've changed my mind. The teak wood surface is far superior to non-skid fiberglass
. If allowed to silver gracefully it'll last many years (like me)... but teak just doesn't seem to like fresh water
; it wants a regular clean salt water
bath (like me)... which is no big deal, I usually get a salt water
bath at the same time.
And forget about what others say about teak being too hot... jeez it's over 100 degrees here and I can still walk on it with just flip flops on, barefoot except for mid-day... and I'm even getting used to it burning me when I need to sit or kneel on it while cutting or sanding
I needed to take four showers today just to cool down... how about you?
