cabin sole repair documentation
I am endeavoring to replace my cabin sole after I discovered that subfloor was decayed.
What I am looking fork, so far unsuccessfully, is a book or an article that describes (hopefully with images)the complete sole replacement in a sail boat. I have found a few/several none of them seem to really address what i am looking for. Things like, if i go with marine plywood for the flooring and coat with epoxy how then is it attached to the subfloor, is is only by tabbing? If i go with slats (teak) do i need a plywood base first, and then how would slats be connected with the sub floor, counter sunk screws and then filled, glued individually?
I feel like i have a pretty good understanding of the process but i know there will some questions that a reference book would be of use.
thanks all in advance.
