Galley Sole Replacement
 
Well the mast went back in the boat yesterday as I played rigger, and the yard is nearing completion of all their to do items, so it is now my turn to start putting the interior back together.

Im not going to spend a ton of time doing this at this point but will work on it as time permits, this project has taken a year to long as it is, and Im past ready to go sailing.

But one of the item's on the must do list was to replace the galley sole...So I made a Part 1 video today of a couple hours work in the wood shop.

One of my hobbies is taking wood from standing timber state all the way to furniture...I usually have a stack or three of various species of drying and fully cured wood, sticker stacked in my shop...Im seen using some of that in the video for the galley sole.

I thought Id start things off with my yards theme song..:rolleyes:

I have a quick question, does it matter which way you place the crown of the cherry wood? I noticed in the mock up that you placed some up and some down but does it matter?

Looking forward to seeing part 2!

Its a habit...

Not important for the 1/4" strips but very important for gluing together anything of any width...Its not the crown your looking for but the cup direction of the growth rings that you want to stagger..one up the next down the next up..etc.

Not as critical when your gluing to a backer board like I am here, but for a free standing edge glue it will keep the surface from getting too crazy on you...the wider the pieces the greater the chance for future cupping....run all the pieces with the grain the same way and you could end up with a bathtub out of your once flat table top.

So not having the adhesive I want to use, I didn't glue up today but I spent a few minutes tinkering anyway...take a peak.

Nice. I know it can definitely be difficult colour matching things up. I would consider another quick coat of stain just to darken it up a tad more, but really.. it looks great.

Damn it Scott. That was good. You are certainly a dab hand in the workshop.

Interestingly enough I thought the Helmsman looked better but I guess the video colours would not be true to life so its hard to tell. All varnishes tend to darken with age though..don't they ?

Looking forward to seeing the old girl out for a sail...shoot, even just floating would be a start. Its been a long hard road. Admirable perseverence on your part.

Cheers me old mateeeee........

Nice, Scott!! Getting closer!

Linoleum?
 
Excellent work, but good god, who would put down linoleum on a sole in the first place? I haven't seen the boat in general but I'll bet my wife's stockings that you had a real challenge when you started out.

Stillraining 07-10-2010 10:09 AM

Thanks for all the kind words guys.

Well I finally made it past the building supply center and picked up the adhesive I wanted to use it was even on sale..3.49 + tax...some of you may wonder at my choice and why not go with a marine product...My answer is simple...The construction industry has been around as long as the boat industry and their R&D is just as stringent.

This is not a below water line or topside application..their is absolutely no reason to pay high dollars for a marine sealant here...Sub-floor adhesive or what I chose will do just fine.

FWIW...I pealed off some 30 year old sub-floor adhesive off my glue gun and it is still pliable and tough to break.

Hopefully I am starting to convince some of you with this how to...that this is a doable project for you and doesn't need to take hours and hours to do...A table saw and a few clamps ( you can rent them) is really the only required tools you will need for this, and that can be the 200.00 bench top model as well.

My choice to use my own lumber necessitated the planner but buying dimensional lumber removes that requirement... I also just ran wild the boards off the sub-base and will trim with a router after sanding, this is my lazy and fast way of doing it but you could just as well cut everything perfect to fit as you go.

Believe me it has taken longer to put together and edit these video's then this project has taken.

Up next sanding, trimming and and finish.

That looks great! Really looking forward to seeing the end result. Did you miss a piece or leave it out intentionally on the right side of the hatch? Looks like there is a gap there.
