i worked the boatyards in ft lauderdale for 10 years ,
and laid way to many decks .
the point of your table , ( which is very well made ) ,
is to simulate a wooden boat deck .
in the day , the decking was rived and caulked for water stopage ,
to simulate that era , it should be as close to the original as possible ,
even people that don’t know boats marvel at the work and beauty of these and other wooden boats .
a plain table top in a yacht setting , is just a plain table .
it should look as if it was salveged from a world class boat !
