There are many benefits of just glassing and painting the deck. Teak decks are beautiful but require maintenance and sealing to keep them looking good. The fiberglass deck on the other hand is bulletproof and requires a hosing down and scrubbing once in while. The boat is in Florida which is another reason the glass and brighter surface made sense. Dark brown teak decks create an oven down below during the summers in Florida.
The object of this rebuild after all was to maximize the enjoyment while minimizing the maintenance and work that it take to keep a boat up.
