Re: Does the faux teak prevent one From seeing damage before it is too late? #solution

I’ve seen 2 or 3 SMS having their decks gelcoated, usually in off white, in Guatemala. The one I examined closely, looked very good, and was cool enough to walk barefoot on in the tropical sun. The marina used a rolled out, molding technique that created a diamond pattern in the gelcoat.

If the white sub teak gel coat gets damaged, can the faux teak prevent one from seeing the problem before one has saturated balsa core?

Is there a horrendous argument for just doing away with the faux teak and painting the deck blue like a westerly 33?

Would this dramatically lower the resale value of a forty year old Mango?
