The product is TimberTech's Earthwood line of composite home decking material called "Tropical Teak" and has an embossed wood grain. Relevant web page HERE.

The bench top slats and cockpit floor grates were sawn from their 9/16" thick x 12" wide fascia board accessory trim (link HERE) I then added corner rounded edges with a router for a soft appearance.

A closer shot of the aft lazarette during refit.

Here's a 'before' pic of the cockpit.

RocketScience The best of both worlds; the looks of teak without the maintenance of teak.

Last year I refitted my cockpit teak (bench tops, floor grates) with a composite faux teak decking material from TimberTech. Worked awesome.

solman55 I like the cedar floor, what is holding it in? Is it just laid in there and tight? Cedar is a great wood for marine environment and I will be going this route for mine.

bryanphaas See my post in "Low Buck Projects" thread.

I used the IKEA flooring, and am very pleased. VERY Cheap (60$), and took me all of 1.5 hrs to cut it to fit.

sailingdog SailChick used teak tiles that are designed for bathroom/shower use from Ikea. They're a seasonal item though.

5hortBu5 Have you considered cherry? Brazilian cherry is pretty, hard, and loaded with those groovy water-resistant oils, but a fraction of the price.

Wood cockpit floor mat

Looking to make a "drain" mat for my cockpit floor. Would love to do teak but buying the planks is expensive enough. What other woods can I use for the slats. Was planning on staining/ oiling and varnishing. Thanks for the help.
