    Mine has been down 6 months now... It looks like it did the day it went down. The true test will be this summer in the heat.

    I know they have a 1st and 2nd generation of sea dek (primarily 30% lighter in weight and cooler to the touch) I've stepped on some of the 1st gen stuff and wow, does it get hot on bare feet. I assume it'll hold up I'm more concerned about the temperature on my feet.

    I just installed Seadek last Summer on my swim platform. It does not get hot.

    I've been thru 3 Texas summers with mine now. It's hotter on your feet than the white non-slip on the platform. It's not nearly as hot as some of the other faux teaks as I can still always walk on it barefoot. It's held up very well over that time however I do have one corner of the swim platform that needs to be glued back down. The cushioning is very comfortable to walk on and provides better traction than the molded in non-slip.

    Just let me add for full disclosure that I'm on a fresh water lake in a covered slip so I have no idea if someone in an uncovered saltwater environment would get the same results.

    Looking for opinions. I am also going to be ordering seadek for my swim platform. Opinions welcome on what would look better...traditional teak color with black striping or gray color with black striping which would match the blue canvas and blue and gray accents of the boat.
    Thanks in advance

    I'd go gray. If/when I do the swim platform on my boat I'll be using gray with black lines. I'd love to do the teak, mocha/black or other look but with my darkish gray cockpit carpet and gray canvas I really can't pull it off. I suspect the cool gray will be a bit cooler on the feat as well. My two cents only of course...

    I just received a quote for the swimstep only for REAL TEAK @ $5900 (too much for me) but he said the swimstep with faux teal would run about $3000. I see your quote at $3k covers bothe the swimsteo And cockpit. Maybe the real guy is trying to justify his 5900?!?!

    I think I was in the 2000's for my 240 Sundeck. But dramatically changed the look of the boat. See avatar.

    I took the boat out last week and ran it around for a couple hours. I washed it down for the first time since last October and the swim steps look like new. 2018-03-11 14.56.36.jpg
