Teak vs fiberglass sole?

The cabin sole of the Bandera was originally all teak. After the "hurricane summer" in FL in 2004, when water got in and stayed in a couple of weeks before the boat could be hauled and all that, the teak rotted and was removed, holes re-glassed, etc., so now it's fiberglass with a worn out carpet on it. My question: should I forget replacing the teak due to the maintenance it would require once put in (not to mention the time and cost to do it), and just put new carpet down? Or go ahead and do bite the bullet? The teak looked really sweet...but...
