Re: teak decks - how much work are they really?

Not sure I agree teak is antiquated. A wet teak deck feels much better under foot than most anything else. A good non-skid might be a bit stickier, but way more aggressive on your foot too. I also find non-skid sticks, until it doesn’t, and you abruptly let go. Teak is more subtle and forces a better balance. There are also many versions of non-skid patterns I wouldn’t trade for an ice rink.
