Re: teak decks - how much work are they really?
Yes they are pretty and I love teak decks providing they are on other peoples boats.
I am a long term Caribbean cruiser and would never buy a boat with teak decks. They are too hot to walk on. They raise the temperature inside the boat by several degrees.
But the main reason is that when the times come to replace them at 20 to 30 years the cost is enormous. We are talking circa 1k $ US PER FOOT.
