A good deck or floor depends on preparation for the final look. While a new teak deck is unrivaled, expensive, needs a lot of maintenance and regular replacing. The veneer on today's common plywood floors and decks quickly wears off, leaving a choice between more of the same, teak or PVC. Of the two main PVC products, Tek Dek is my choice for versatility, UV and structural stability and guarantee.

Every installation is such a combination of factors though and must be considered with the whole boat in mind: I recently talked an owner out of replacing a galley floor: The expense wasn't worth the marginal improvement before selling.
