Hi,

This is a good question. It is probably not that common to use synthetic teak in a boats such as HR, but I think that it is getting more popular in the future as the natural teak becomes more expensive and also as the synthetic materials become better. If I would need to replace a teak deck in the near future, I would definitely check the synthetic options as well.

I haven't followed the market that closely in the recent years, but I blogged about Flexiteek a couple of years ago. From the blog post you will find also comparison photos of Flexiteek samples against natural teak: http://www.sydolphindance.com/2012/11/n ... iteek.html

Check also this Facebook page, where there is photos of Flexiteek deck on a HR 352: https://www.facebook.com/TheTeakMan/pos ... 3371476089
