Re: slightly soft floor remedies

I picked up a piece of teak at Exotic 4 years ago - for 70 bucks.

It was 2 inches thick, 9 wide and 6 feet long.

I could have cut that up into 3/32 thick, 2 7/8 wide by 6 foot planks and done a lot of sole for a LOT under 400 bucks. By epoxying those planks onto marine ply with a holly strip it would have been stronger and far better than a thin .9mm veneer.

I got the piece to make a fireplace mantel, got rid of the fireplace instead so I turned the wood into a large number of decorative backing plates and such on my boat and others. All that remains is a 2 inch by 9 inch by 18 inch chunk.

And that would be a crap load better than .9mm thick veneer.

Look around at mill shops - some are reasonable and most are looking for work - not everyone owns the gear to re-saw and plane.

Re: slightly soft floor remedies

Chuckles - the .9mm veneer is only on the ¼" sheets. The others use a whopping 1.1mm veneer

Yeah, cus that's better.

Frigging varnish is laid on thicker than that.

floors

Some great comments on this thread thank you
Emoney I really appreciate the detail I am wondering as completely agree the cancer analogy plus ballcap- brilliant but 1 of my questions is the fiberglass skin that's over this floor I don't have a plywood floor
the only wood on the floor is that small panel which covers the bildge~ it is 3 feet long by 4 inches wide.

I assume to get to the stringers which I can only guess are obviously are under the fiberglass skin the floor... there are may be a soft stringer ot two- most of the floor seems very solid
but yes, at some point I would like to clean it out and make sure it's all dry
Can this be done in the water? And how do you recommend cutting the fiberglass skin~ seems like the preformentioned router is a great option I saw somebody mentioned
Further, how do you rebuild the floor skin after stringer repair- I assume you have an option then of going fiberglass again or wood flooring
