Me, I like non slip paint, cheap, easy to touch up and doesn't fade. Oh and you can walk on it with bare feet. £20 ish for 3/4L tin is all you will need for two coats.
I think it was about £300 or so for the whole thing, laid myself. Teak is no use for my useage, its treated as a working boat for diving sometimes and rubber decking stops kit moving about plus doesn't get scratched and damaged.
I walk about in bare feet rarely, its too cold up here, but I prefer the hard wearing finish of the treadmaster. I looked at other equivalent sheeting materials but none were cheaper or as easy to get hold of.
I fitted it to a much smaller RIB I put together a few years ago and now would fit it to any RIB I put together as IMO its worth it, but it wouldn't be in everyones eyes
