Re: replacement flooring

Minor thread hijack warning - The teak parquet flooring in my boat has started un jigsawing itself, and I'm thinking about going with solid unfinished 5" tongue and groove brazilian cherry (Jatoba) from Lumber Liquidators for about $5 per sf and finishing it with a satin varnish....about the same cost as what the teak and hoilly plywood would be and a lot less than new teak parquet. I've read that the jatoba is moisture and rot resistant. Anyone had any experience with that material or installing solid lumber flooring in a boat in general?
