Does anyone have an Edson "poly" cockpit table?

Like this one:



I'm wondering if it stains easily, or has any other drawbacks. I'm aware it's not as pretty as a teak table, but am interested in the low-maintenance aspects (our boat already has plenty of teak).

Thanks,
J

We built our own out of 'Seaboard/Starboard', has worked well and has not taken any stains from any spills so far.. We don't have welded seams so some 'green' can appear under the fiddles but a pressure washer takes care of it.

I think you'll be fine.

I can't see going wrong with a product like that made from Starboard material. I have some Starboard on my boat (the sternrail seats) and they look fine.

There's no wood on my boat's exterior and I plan to keep it that way.

You might also want to check out the Starboard material tables from Zarcor, as they may be more attractively priced. I saw them at the Miami boat show and they looked nice.

Jos...

Go for the teak one on your pretty boat. They are very little maintainence and it sits under your pedestal cover most of the time also. We varnish ours once every 7 years during the winter. Has a n ice glossy stained look

Our comes with fold out leaves as well as a fold out foot so it is well supported. It also has 4 drink holders. Ours is similar to this.

The starboard ones get nicks in them as well gouges if you hit it with a winch handle and look dingy and need to be washed a lot. Teak...just plain looks better. Ours came with a sumbrella cover it slides into or slides around it when extended. and we could copver it all the time, but we dont.

You're killing me here, Dave. I know the teak looks great, but it's a table. And yet another piece of teak we'll have to refinish periodically. Do you really get 7 years out of it? That might help, I suppose...
