Thanks! Its so encouraging when folks are so complementary of all the hard work. I really appreciate it. The floor is very low maintenance, and the main reason I decided to do it. After a day on the water a quick pass with the hoover/vacuum cleaner, and a wipe down is all it needs. I had sealed it with a marine varnish.....purely for aesthetic reasons. The ideal is to leave the teak as is, but it tends to grey and fade in the sun. For a ski boat applicatioin where its not absolutely essential to have a highly non skid surface a coat of oil or varnish brings out the true colours of the wood, whilst still being pretty non-slip. All the other wood finishes were finished with 2k automitive polyurethane which should hold up very well. Thanks again.
