So as I am rebuilding my 22 year old swim platform I am lookin at different products to cover it with, Foam Pads, Faux Teak, Carpet. What do you have and what do you think works best and why. Is one better than the other, does one last longer, easier to maintain, cost less, look better. What is your preference?

We have real teak. Costs more but faux teak isn't cheap either.
First but that's very personal it looks what it is real wood. Although there is faux teak that according to some comes close it stays faux and I see that. It also takes a little more to keep it in shape but I think it's worth it. But the main reason was it looks better, and also important when wet it isn't slippery. Maintenance, I use when it gets too grey washing soda or simple green to clean it, let it dry well and apply a good quality (Hempel) teak oil on it by using a soft cloth. I put the oil on it and softly rub it on the teak. I just have done that two weeks ago and it looks good as it should on a boat but that's mho. Total working time to apply the oil less than 10 minutes.

David,

What I have is from Norway. That company is specialized in making teak stuff using patterns of existing boat decks, swim platforms etc.

The Marina ordered a swim platform teak deck for a Bayliner 340 and It came in two parts and was glued on my swim platform. See the picture with the Honda generator in the Gallery at Dutch boating. The teak they use comes from Indonesia I was told. The picture shows the teak in the grey mode at the moment I have oiled it.
It's about 5 mm thick and not very heavy, 2-3 kilo not much more as I recall. At the German boat show I saw some companies that had the same material in sheets, so I think it also must also be available in Canada.
I found a picture where it's oiled. :)

David,

It's real teak you can grind it before you oil it if necessary. They told me it costs € 500 for the platform. But I don't know that for sure. When my boat arrived it had some nasty damage in the non skid part. So they offered it to me for free. I accepted that as I otherwise would have ordered one. :) It feels great when you stand on it. Much better than the original non skid stuff.
Also when it's raining you can step on it, it isn't slippery.
