It should be noted that is not per foot of boat but per foot of PLANK.

I love the look of teak decks and I laid a flush teak deck on the first boat I built.

I would never have one again - work, rotting sub deck, work, cost, work, cost........

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
