You might be looking for something like "PlasTeak." Check them out at PlasTEAK 100% Recycled Plastic Lumber Products 1-800-320-1841 Guaranteed

NOTE: I've never used, or even touched for that matter, their products. I remember it being highlighted in on a boating show, but that was for their synthetic teak decking. They do seem to have plastic "lumber" as well.

Thanks, I was about to start looking where to find this stuff. I need to brighten up the cabin a bit and this might just be what the Doctor ordered.

I'm on the same mission. PlasTeak will send you samples. Their decking product is hard to tell from the real thing. In some respects, I think it's better than the real thing. It is not the thing for hatch boards though. They make a lumber-like product as well, but it doesn't look good to me.
