Laying teak over fiberglass interior

I'm new to any boat and my first purchase was a Columbia 34' mkII. The boat seems to be a very basic version of the model and no ammenities seem to have been included. I'm going to start with the interior and am very interested with laying a nice teak flooring over the existing bare fiberglass. Does anyone have any tipes or experience with this? What is the best way to go about this? I would also be interested in any other ideas for overall improvements with this boat, both the interior and exterior.

You may find it easier to use the various pre-finished plywoods available for boat floors. Ours is striped teak & holly which is quite common. Look at a few floors in other boats - just like looking at open-houses for project ideas. If you decide to do the "walls" up the sides of the hull be sure you leave air gap. Ours is teak firring strips suspended horizontally on the ribs. You may also want to consider insulation depending on your cruising plans.

We have a product over here called 'flexiteak' it is an laminate product that does look great, and would be alot easier than actual teak. I am sure it or an equivalent would be available to you.
