I agree teak decks, grey or finished, are hotter than white gel coat any day of the week. I think finished may be a little less so.

Interesting, I think this Thread will live for a year or more considering oposite experiences, preferences and taste...

yep, hotter

I agree, teak decks are definitely hotter than light colored nonskid fiberglass.

Why some people tell me that teak is much cooler on your feet in hot weather. How can be possible to have two contrary versions?

Not sure.

But I am not reporting what some other people have told me. I'm reporting what I have felt beneath my own two feet: In tropical and direct summer sunlight, the weathered-teak decks I've experienced got very hot. Much hotter than light-colored fiberglass gelcoat. In certain conditions, they can get hot enough that they are uncomfortable to walk on in bare feet.

Even in non-tropical sun teak decks get extremely hot to bare feet.

It's not the teak that get's so hot, but the black polysulfide caulking that heats up to extreme hot.

I've found it to be quite a challenge to walk barefoot and only step on the teak part of the decks.... but the non-skid attributes of teak decks are unparalleled.

I agree that a teak deck is going to be allot hotter than a fiberglass/non slip white/beige deck.

Another thought on the Semco, I used it on my cockpit teak seating, and like it a lot, but man I would not want to have to maintain anymore than that. You have to re-apply Semco about 4-5 months depending on the weather and latitude

I think we have a majority here experiencing hot teak... Can't cancel most of the exterior teak so I have to live with it and try to appreciate the anti-skid advantage over inconveniences.
