Maintain character of teak decks with nonskid

I have a Cheoy Lee 41 that had beautiful teak decks when she was new.

Now they're 30 years old and the caulk is all dried out and lots of the bungs are missing.

There are only two leaks that I know of coming through the deck. What I'm interested in isn't the process of replacing the teak decks, I've seen that elsewhere, but how to economically replace the deck with a nonskid surface and still maintain the character of the teak decks, because they really beautify the boat.

There's still a lot of teak wood trim around the windows/portlights, toe rail and hatches. I'm considering doing a khacki colored nonskid and adding a cosmetic teak trim at the deck level.

Have you seen any well done teak deck replacements that still retain the beauty of a teak decked boat? Pictures please!
