Cost of sole replacement

Just how big and expensive of a job is replacing a sole in 40' boat.
I just looked at an Ericson 38 made by Pacific Seacraft.

The sole was very shabby looking.
The sole seems to go under a lot of cabinetry so I was wondering how big a job it is to open it all out, replace the sole and put it all back.

Anyone do a similar job?
Anyone have the yard do it?

We are doing this next winter on our C&C35. Luckily it actually has sections which we can unscrew and pul out and use as templates for he new sole. It appeared mine went under the settees but after close inspection it only I'd in one spot.

The is a great specialty lumber shop outside Annapolis, Specialty Lumber which sells the teak and holly in drywall size sheets of various thicknesses for great prices. Our raw floor can be cut out of two sheets . We re having a wood shop do he cutting as there are a few beveled edges and curves and teak is hard to cut lt alone this thick. After that we will epoxy the bottoms with a few coats then varnish the ops before screwing in. We should be in at lesss than $1000. The two Estes we got were in excess of $3000.
kentobin and jimgo like this.

Sure he'll chime in, but Tim R did a nice job on his previous boat, an Ericson 35. See here:

Cabin Sole Replacement - TKRonaBoat

I basically followed his lead on our 28'. There's a link in this thread to more details on the project. Time and tools not included, around $500 - $600.

Re: Cost of sole replacement

On another Ericson 38-200 we saw, the owner had replaced the original cabin sole with solid 3/4" cherry planking. Not sure if it was T&G or if he laid some solid substrate under it for support. Though that would raise the overall height into the cabinetry.

Has anyone else seen solid wood flooring on a fiberglass boat?

Also curious if those who have replaced the sole in their boat sealed the underside and if so, what with?
