non-skid or teak?
The factory molded non-skid on my t-30 is history. It's been worn down so well that I almost don't even see a diference between the non-skid and the regular top coat. So given that I need to not only paint the entire topsides of my boat, but replace the non-skid for the entire boat as well, it leaves me with lots of options. Luckily I've pared it down to two. To teak or to non-skid, that is the question.
As I am 100% DIY, labor costs are not the issue, and I'm ok with the price jump for the raw materials. I'd want to use the Gougeon brother's screwless method which should (?) prevent leaks but I'd want some opinions on that.
As far as the non-skid goes, I personally don't like the look of the all white on white boat. The non-skid would either be a sandy color over an off white, or a grey over an off white.
So if you were in my shoes, new teak deck, or non-skid?
