Re: What do you have on your cabin sole?

You would be correct Gunthrie. It's a 97 26X that we bought last year. I have everything we did last year on our website but I really need to get busy and start updating it for this year before I start forgetting everything I intended to post LOL.

Re: What do you have on your cabin sole?

Of course the primary reason for the beer cans in the floor is that collectively they act like a ballast tank. When approaching a shore and you need less draft, well then the fun begins. Of course all that ballast will need to be refilled for the next cruise in order to maximize the boats bluewater handling ability.


BTW we have teak and holly floors.

Varnished clear straight grain fir. Looks good except for the black snits where the PO didn't keep it varnished properly.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

When I prepped the boat this past winter for our re-power, I covered the entire sole with a piece of leftover carpet from our basement, pad and all. I got used to it and, although not very "yachty", I too liked the feel of it, and it had some sound deading (sp?) qualities to!

Our sole needs attention, but I need to repair a annoying water tank leak first. That "Teak" carpet is pretty kewl, different anyways.

Re: What do you have on your cabin sole?

There are some cork sheeting and fake cork sheetings sold for flooring and decking. And the infamous Lumber liquidators also sells cork flooring. Cork shouldn't give you any mildew problem, and it is really nice and warm and soft underfoot. Easy to cut and trim, too. Might be another option to look at if you want something softer than plain wood or bamboo flooring.

Holding up very well, thank you. Six coats I think, but there is no sanding required between coats of Epifanes Woodfinish Gloss.
