Hey Dog..... I almost jumped in the way Cormeum did but I figured you MUST have been talking about the OP directly veneering Teak and Holly to his fiberglass sole. Big difference. Having applied Teak veneer to the fiberglass walls of my previous boat I agree..... not a good idea. But as for the regular factory veneered Teak and Holly over ply soles that thousands and thousands of boats have come with before the vinyl stuff as long as you don't Attack it with a belt sander you can get a few re-finishes out of them. I have.
