Wink Cabin sole

We bought an 84 C&C Landfall 38 last fall and need to replace the cabin sole. Does anyone know of a good place to get material?

Lumber yard

We took our old sole to a local high-end lumber yard, and they made a new one to match. Our sole consists of 14 pieces. the yard ordered two 4x8 sheets of teak and holly ply, and cut to match exactly. Our bill was under $800.

Coat the edges and bottom of the peices with several coats of epoxy ( and maybe one on the top, I didn't try this but based on some subsequent water staining, it'd be worth trying). Put on three coats of Ultimate Sole Welcome to Ultimate Marine Products, Inc and presto, better than new and should last forever.

Check the fit of the peices before starting the finishing, you need a little give for the buildup..

I did find out it is impossible to match the original flooring which was made custom for C&C. I am facing this too!

I used the fiber deck boards on mine, 3/4X8', they are gray in color, have small ridges in them, which help with wet feet, and don't look too bad..02
