Teak and Holly floor

Could someone tell me where in the New York area I can find teak and holly cabin sole material, from which I can cut out my own replacement floor boards? I own a C&C 99, and the thickness of the boards is 2/3". I heard about a place in Texas, but was hoping to find someplace local. Thanks!

If you're matching the new T. &. H. sole to the existing, purchasing pre-made T. &. H. plywood could be a problem. It varies in width of the teak and width of the holly from one manufacturer to the next.

Here at the boatyard where I work, when the carpenters have to make a repair to a T. &. H. sole, they rip holly strips (actually it's a white wood other than holly - I don't know what - our supplier doesn't stock holly) and teak strips of the same widths and epoxy them onto marine grade plywood - or sometimes, just glue them edge to edge.

Sounds labor intensive, but if you have a table saw, it's not difficult. Just rip it, glue it up, sand it down, cut to fit and install it. The hard part is matching the finish.

If you don't need to butt the repair end to end then anything thats close will work - but there are a lot of variances in the widths so get measurements before you purchase - or it may look odd.

Good luck!

Try Boulters Plywood in Mass. It is on the internet and they have very good service and competitive pricing. I have bought from them several times over the last 10 years and they always treat me well.

You should be able to order that ply thru any local lumber yard and pick it up locally.

When replacing my sole several years ago, I actually just delivered all the pieces (14) of the original floor to a local full-service lumber yard, and they ordered the wood, then used the pieces as a pattern to cut a full new floor. It worked out well, for about $900 all in.

I went to Condon's. The stuff they sold me matched exactly what Tillotson-Pearson put in 20+ years ago.

I live in tri-state area. ditto on M.L. Condon. that is where I would go.

btw - that C&C 99 is probably only a few years old - why replace the floorboards?

teak and holly laminate

To all cabin sole restorers:
I am redoing my floors in teak and holly plastic laminate by worldpanel.com
Got the idea from Beneteau boats that use it. I ran out of material and when
I went to re-order they no longer make the same dimensions so am looking
for some more if anyone out there has bought this product and have leftovers. Dimension of the teak
part is 2" and the holly part is 1/4".

Mahalo from Kaneohe,
Mike
