It depends. Most have wood in their decks, many sandwiched between glass. The usual issue with wood decks, any decks are where things like cleats, chainplates and other hardware are bolted or pass through. If not properly maintained, they leak. When that happens, the plywood, balsa or whatever soaks up water and turns to mush or rots. If teak over glass, it depends on how it was built. Some teak decked boats were not properly bedded and had screws driven down into the glass/wood sandwich, which later caused the above issues.
