You could do the job. Those materials are easier to apply than real teak.

The Sunbeams were always a somewhat customized boat. Normally they come with teak decks unless the client would have wanted any other thing but that is very unlikely because in Europe teak is very popular in high end boats.

I don't know the condition of the teak but I had seen 30 year old boats with teak decks that could be recovered. Old teak was of much better quality and the thickness they use was a lot more then what is used now. Maybe it is recoverable?
