Errrr not in the cruising community I hang out in.
I can not argue with the beauty of a teak deck but in summer down here an unshrouded teak deck gets so hot you need shoes to walk on it while an off white GR job is OK barefoot.
Hence why I stated that a teak deck is only slightly better than off-white and only if you can wet it down
- especially before you walk on it!
If there is some reason why a bucket of sea-water every so often isn't a good idea (deck leaks, etc.) then, yes, you are far better off without it.
A bad day on a boat beats a good day in the office
