Re: slightly soft floor remedies

My winter project is to replace the sole on our C&C 35MKIII. It has about 7 different sections to it. The floor is screwed down on the horizontal stringers and longitudinal ribs.It can be taken up easily. What you find underneath I am sure will take some cleaning as my boat is 30 years old this year. In addition it will give me a chance to clean the limber holes,replace bilge pump hoses, and examine the structural integrity of the stringers also.

Teak and holy 3/4 inch is sold in 5X8 ft sheets in this area for about $ 400 a sheet. I intend on taking up the floor sections and taking them to someone with the appropriate commercial saw to fabricate them using the the sections as templates. We will put some epoxy layers on the bottoms of the boards before they go down.
