Teak board?

Is there a readily available product out there that looks like teak but is weatherproof, available in sheets? I'm aware of tek-teak type stuff to go on the deck but this has to be laid in "planks". I'm also aware of the stuff you get inside bigger boats but doubt this is suitable for outside on a RIB. Basically I need to make a new hatch cover that formally had tek-teak on it. Cutting a ready prepared sheet and bolting it on is going to save me a lot of time, money and hassle as opposed to getting someone to recover a bit of ply.

Presumably I would just have to route some lines in it and put some caulking in to make it look like boards?

No, it's already done! There's a shop in Cobbs Quay Marina that may even have an "off cut", saving you the expense of an 8' x 4' sheet.

If I remember their name I'll post it!

yeh, wouldn't hurt to explain what you want it for, and the fact that you want the face to be in strips with caulking between!

Tim - if it makes it any easier for you I am after the same sort of thing to go on the floor of my cabin . About 18 inches by 4ft. If they have any suitable sized 'bits' that we can both get some out of it would be easy for me to nip over and check it out/ pick up & wing over to Pompey to drop off.

Arhh this sounds like a plan. I'm after a bit about 15 inches by about 5ft. Doesn't really matter how thick. I'll give them a call!
