Wood deck maintenance?

Assuming they're solid and in good condition, just how maintenance intensive are those wooden decks on the Cheoy Lee's? There's one or two in my area I'd like to go see, but don't know anything about them.

Re: Wood deck maintenance?

I don't like ANY wood maintenance on a boat, but aside from maintaining the decks, your primary concern might be for determining whether that which is directly under the wood is sound. It's essentially a teak deck screwed to a fiberglass deck, so there are hundreds of holes to be considered.

If the deck has some age on it, then there's the possibility of water having entered the screw holes and causing problems with the deck core. Much caution is advised.
