    Default Protecting plywood deck subject to little traffic

    I'm looking at a large powerboat where the upper deck (deckhouse roof, with pilothouse on top) was originally exposed teak. The owner covered the teak with plywood as the 25 year old boat obviously was showing the normal issues that a teak deck are susceptible of. My question for this area, which is very low traffic/wear, is would it be better to sheathe it in fiberglass or coat with an elastomeric deck coating?

    If the layers of ply and teak are sound, dynel and epoxy , be my first choice .

    Glass would be better. Swimming pool or truck bed liner would probably do the job. But not so good for resale.
