Re: Cabin Sole Renewal

my son and I cut up a draft (skid) of teak and then holly to make real T & H decking for a yacht (when I was a volunteer at the Phila seaport museum)

T & H veneer plywood is great. but doesn't last long.

Maple and mahogany can pass as nearly the same and somewhat cheaper.

The holly seems to get gray and even wood bleach didn't help. I gave up.. my boat only had the bilge cover boards not the whole sole.

Pretty sure I'd go with synthetic if I were doing another boat.

Hi Denise,

Is there a product that you've heard of or used that might be recommended?

Looking for something easy to cut and work with.

Thanks!

Re: Cabin Sole Renewal

Plas-teak was the first I think. there are T&H sheet goods (like linoleum) also. No real experience with any .

Re: Cabin Sole Renewal

Did the last boat with Lonseal teak and holy over the fiberglass floor. Pics are after two years when I replaced the teak on the mast step. it comes in flat, semi and gloss finish . we liked the semi because it does not show marks and dirt. believe it or not the gloss is the least slippery when wet but non of them are a problem. less slippery then the old painted non skid that showed wear and all the dirt. bought it from Defender

My preference on an older boat with lots of other natural wood, would be to use a natural product. However, that is just my asthetics.

Interesting in that first article, that they found the high gloss had good grip underfoot. I would have guessed it would be slippery.

WE did a wet slip test in this boat with samples of all three finishes temporarily double backed taped to the floor at the entrance to the cabin
with sailing shoes there was little difference, bare foot there was a difference and the flat was the worst with very little difference between the semi and the gloss. We used the semi gloss because it showed the least marks from shoes and the gloss was the worst for marks and scratches .

Re: Cabin Sole Renewal

several yrs ago I redid the interior of a Newport 33. I used NuTeak. It was very easy to work with and held up well.
