Mix Fiberglass/teak swim platform

Debating on doing a full gatorstep kit on the x45 and trying to figure out if this swim platform is the same as the standard fiberglass platform and if the real teak could be removed and replaced with the standard template for the fiberglass swim decks or if it is designed different than the normal fiberglass decks? Or suggestions on if it would look better keeping the real teak with faux teak inside.

First I would question the above photo…if its real teak…is that the question..I think on the newer boats swim platforms..have a simulated teak design but are actually made of some type of neoprene type foam material. I think what is on the fiberglass platform is some type of template material already. I could be wrong, or misunderstood..others can chime N

That would be interesting to know i've been assuming it's real from the look and feel and wear characteristics but i haven't seen any others with this mix of fiberglass and teak

That looks like Seadek (a sticker) but I cannot tell with the angle.

Here is a larger picture, it doesn't feel like seadeck feels like wood. I've assumed this was an OEM option but haven't ever seen another one like it

Is it a wood veneer?

There used to be an option of a fiberglass platform with Teak inlay. That is what it looks like you have. It as very expensive and I don't think Master Craft made very many of them.

I was on an X80 that had a platform like that. I think it would be nice to have as it's something different. But at the end of the day, you can get a new teak one for around 500 dollars and get a few hundred for your old fiberglass one.

This is what it seems like which leads me to wonder if i try to remove it would the fiberglass underneath be the same as a regular padded deck or would it be deeper to accommodate the veneer...

why not just sand the teak, put oil on it and make it look brand new again?
