Re: Teak or plastic cockpit floor?

I have teak cockpit sole, seats, and *ahem* decks. I haven't found the maintenance to be a problem. Regular moppings, even in brackish water seem to be fine. Work across the grain as much as possible. Every couple of years I use Boracol on the deck. I don't bother in the cockpit.
sail fast and eat well, dave
