Deck Covering

by Don Lawson

Love the comment about fake teak being for plastic boaters who want to look like a wooden boater.

Thinking about it you really are spot on.

Will have to do the deck on Woodruff which has been covered in Treadmaster which is now way past its best.

No longer available I'm told.

I agree that teak on a small boat looks out of place so I'm looking at ways like perhaps the modern linoleums (they don't like being called that) I mean stuff like Altro etc.

Trouble is the colours are meant for public toilets.

Any ideas?

Many trawler owners, having ageing teak decks and looking at expensive replacement cost, have been applying products made to line "pickup truck" rear cargo beds with great success !!

It isn't hard to put on, but as with all jobs "PREP" is the key !!!

Home depot sells toughdeck meant for outdoor decks.

Follow installation instructions carefully and use the recommended adhesive.

Properly installed will last a long time.

Comes in several colors

Can still get TrackMark and Treadmaster on the Norfolk Broads UK!

Painted Deck?
by: Mike

Um, not sure about using lino.

I'm sure the products are fine, it's the gluing that might be a problem.

My own preference would be to simply paint the decks.

Next time I do mine I'm going to try either 'Protecta-kote UVR' or the 'Decolay' that is recommended here for "Mourne Lass"
