Default Sea Dek staining

Thinking about Sea decking the whole deck in my 35 Marlago! Friend was telling me today that blood stained it really bad and was almost impossible to get off ! Just asking to see if anyone would agree with this or is it tolerable? TIA

Default Sea Deck

Can't speak specifically to blood, but have had some on our coaming bolsters, which we do rinse right away with raw water. It never stained. Just did spring cleaning with soft scrub and it cleaned up like new. 3 y/o sea deck very dirty and Mildred from hanging on covered lift all winter.
That said I don't think I'd care to keep up with it on the deck of our boat, especially a boat that's going to be fished.

Blood will stain it if you don't rinse it right away.

I havenít had mine for long. My father and I installed it. Iíve gotten it bloody about 4 trips worth. I treat the same as I did my non-skid - donít let blood dry (takes 15 seconds to rinse it with FW wash down or brush it). I also put a coat of fluid film (woodys wax that costs $8 vs $40), which seems to help with beading / staining, didnít make it slippery.

Just a question, would peroxide and dawn mixed together remove the blood stains like it does on clothing?

Here are some bloody shot of our sea deck. You just have to keep up with it just like any thing else.
