Fake teak

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever used fake Teak on their back deck? Just wondering the cost and complexity of installation. Any pictures would also be helpful.

Hard product or something soft like SeaDek?  I've done SeaDek, it's easy to install. But you have to get a template done of your boat. That's the hard part, outlining the deck, and then you send it in, for them to design it and finally cut it.

Something like seadek how did you start the process?

 

I called SeaDek up, find the number here http://www.seadek.com/

First step is to order a template kit, they'll mail it to you, basically transparent sheets and you lay it on your deck and draw out the profile with a marker. Send in those, and then they draw up AutoCAD plans of the SeaDeck, which they'll send a pdf to you to approve. Once you approve, they cut and ship to you. It has 3M backing, so you lay it out, and once you have it positioned, use temp tape to keep a few corners in place, then peel and lay it down.  Obviously clean you deck first, don't use anything with PTFE or wax residue.  Wash and then I'd wipe it down with acetone to make sure there's no gunk.  It'll stick really well after that.

 

I had my boat with the seadek for 2 seasons before I sold the boat. Never had an issue. Really nice stuff.

I have friends who have the PlasDECK on their back decks. It has held up nicely for them. SeaDek is a more cushy decking. I don't know how it would hold up over time, but I bet it feels better than standing on fiberglass all day. I know a few people who had PlasDECK installed at Krenzer Marine in Sodus if you want to call over there.

It’s really hard to find a price in any of these...

 

I think that's becasue most of these products require a certified dealer to install, so the dealer has to tack on their mark-up/labor.

According to folks on the Striper Owners Club site, Seadek sends you mylar and you cut out the pattern and send it back to them. You install it. Great colors to chose from.
