Fake Teak deck Covering

I was at the Seattle Boat show.

There I saw a number of boats with a deck covering that Resembles Teak. I was told it was available but I didn't find out much more about it.*

Looked to be about an 1/8 of an inch thick with great anti skid properties. light brown in color with a black stripe and edge.

*Anybody know what I am talking about?

It is pricey but that is what some of the companies use in the inside.* Mainship being one of them.* It is great and it cleans up easy.* Looks like T&H.

You can get it in most all of the yards here in Florida. Easy to work with I am told. Pricey however!

RE: Fake Teak deck Covering

so far everyone says expensive.

*I haven't been able to find a cost per foot.

How about a supplier in the states.

I got a bid to put some down on our bridge- they quoted like $60 a sq ft! Crazy.

RE: Fake Teak deck Covering

I went to town today and saw (at the hardware store) Rustoleum 2-part epoxy (water based) garage floor covering. $80. per one car garage (sq ft). It's light blue or tan w contrasting colored flecks (1/4"). I'd like to do Willy*** ...the entire inside of the outside.
I'll do much research first. Prolly should just use Brightside w lots of "pre-kote" primer and anti-skid.

Eric
We did interior of several rooms on the tug with Rustoleum garage paint. It has held up extremely well(on steel) but I think I would think twice about using it on exterior decks. Many report good results with truck bed coatings like Rhino liner and others. They sell DIY kits of this. It is made for the outdoors and apparently has excellent nonskid properties. Reports from others- no first hand
knowledge.

May be a good idea but I spoze it's black*** ...uhgg. Who would want black decks.
On the garage floor coating I just thought it may have little UV resistance.

Not just black! these come in many colors. Passagemaker Mag did a story on a high end boat that did this to her decks at the builder. I don't remember the color but, I assure you it wasn't black.
