wakesurfboy I think we have a majority here experiencing hot teak... Can't cancel most of the exterior teak so I have to live with it and try to appreciate the anti-skid advantage over inconveniences.

T37Chef I agree that a teak deck is going to be allot hotter than a fiberglass/non slip white/beige deck.

Another thought on the Semco, I used it on my cockpit teak seating, and like it a lot, but man I would not want to have to maintain anymore than that. You have to re-apply Semco about 4-5 months depending on the weather and latitude

T37SOLARE Even in non-tropical sun teak decks get extremely hot to bare feet.

It's not the teak that get's so hot, but the black polysulfide caulking that heats up to extreme hot.

I've found it to be quite a challenge to walk barefoot and only step on the teak part of the decks.... but the non-skid attributes of teak decks are unparalleled.

Not sure.

But I am not reporting what some other people have told me. I'm reporting what I have felt beneath my own two feet: In tropical and direct summer sunlight, the weathered-teak decks I've experienced got very hot. Much hotter than light-colored fiberglass gelcoat. In certain conditions, they can get hot enough that they are uncomfortable to walk on in bare feet.

yep, hotter

I agree, teak decks are definitely hotter than light colored nonskid fiberglass.

Interesting, I think this Thread will live for a year or more considering oposite experiences, preferences and taste...

MJBrown I agree teak decks, grey or finished, are hotter than white gel coat any day of the week. I think finished may be a little less so.

That's an interesting observation. I have found the opposite to be true. At least with weathered-grey teak decks, anyway.

That is, unless the fiberglass deck is painted a darker shade.

Any one else care to comment, one way or the other?

Semco

We did not find Semco to be slippery on teak decks, and used it on a number of off shore passages.

If you cannot stand the silvery gray, and don't mind keeping after it, it's a reasonable choice.

But also, remember this message is from a guy who had teak decks for 10 years, and when it came to build a new boat, decided against them
