it depends on size use etc . there were still all wood boats, and all steel , some wad wood decks with steel wear plates and some steel boats had wood wear planks! for tropical use planked decks were most common, for a particular boat you need to have a high view of the decks, and of coarse there were other ,usually, anti slip coatings. colour was usually based on company preference, grey or green for naval any strong colour for others!
