The OP referred to MDF, not MDO.. and the two are not the same thing. However, in a marine environment, for something that is going to take a lot of abuse, be dropped, stepped on, kicked, tripped over, etc—something that does not require an intact protective coating is probably going to be a lot better than something that does require a paint job. The paint won't last long on drop boards, as they are usually abused in many more ways than the companionway slides are—since the slides are firmly mounted and not likely to be subject to the same kinds of abuse.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
