Re: Teak Decks – Synthetic ?

Hi Tristan II,

We have just fitted dek-king to the aft deck of our steel motorboat we keep in France, I will try to attach a couple of pics.
You do need a lot of planning for this and a reasonable amount of skill in fitting, we made up a 10 lead weights and still needed more to do 2 (X3) planks a day. Shade is also needed as the adhesive’s tend to tack off after about 10 mins in high temperatures.

We think the final effects look good, cheaper option than teak, (about £1300 for our aft deck) but don’t underestimate the work involved. You can get pre-made panels but these would need to be small enough to glue down in the space and time constraints of the adhesives.

We found dek-king helpful with advice particularly when ordering, we sent them a approximate plan of sizes and they did the calculations of materials.

If I can help further let me know.
