Isiteek

Anyone used this stuff? ISITEEK

Considering using it and wondered if anyone had any good or bad stories to share?

No, but your post got me thinking and I found this:-

Which synthetic deck is most suited for your boat | Synthetic Teak - is Flexiteek

I don't think I'd want to do a whole deck in it.

I guess it depends on the size of the deck area. Seems a little odd that they don't qualify what construes a 'small' job, but the deck area I wish to cover is no more than 1.5 square metres in total. Gut feeling is that wouldn't be considered a 'big' area.

Hi, Flexiteek used to be my baby!! with Golden Arrow Marine of course. Simulated teak looks great, but we always used to follow the mantra of less is more because some decks can simply be overpowered by lots of it.

1.5 SQ.M is a small area. Have you considered something like FloMat or Deckadence? they look pretty awesome when laid.

My little Valliant was fitted with it (or similar) and I thought it looked really smart. I think you would need to know that it was going to stand up to abrasion in heavy traffic areas though, as then it would look crap with faded sections

Thanks all (including Falcon0310 for your PM), I've now templated the deck and it will only need about 1.1 sqm. Spoke to Advanced Marine Decking at Deacon's Boatyard, the supplier of Isiteek, and they were very helpful. Will be ordering soon, but need to wait for warmer temperatures before applying. Will try to remember to take before and after pics.

Cheers!
