Maybe if you quit asking for a 6 foot x 30 foot sample roll they would answer

I just finished doing this for my 24.5 foot boat. I cut the new sole out of regular finished plywood. I then sanded and applied 3 cotes water based deck stain called butter rum or something like that. The next step I used black car pinstripes to make the lines. The last step was three cotes of fiberglass resin. It looks great to me and everyone mistakes it for the real thing. cost about $100 to make as i had to buy all the materials. I am going to make two as i have a lot of materials left over.

Nice endorsement, but these bastards have ignored two e-mails and a phone call from me in Toronto for a sample of their product. NAFTA, my ass.

Valiente-

They sent me samples... Maybe they don't like canadians.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Another way to do it is:
Take nice external grade plywood. Put 1.5-2-inch-wide stripes of 3M with whatever narrow gaps on the ply. Cover the gaps with PVC. Take the tape off. Stain the wide stripes with whatever stain you like. Sand the PCV off the ply. Varnish or epoxy and varnish.

Regards.

I have some teak veneer marine ply on my floor. We recently had some duct tape on it tp protect a section of floor. On pulling up the duct tape, the veneer came up with it. While it is fixable, it wont look the same. I wish I had solid timber or maybe synthetic floor.

What do you all think about not pulling up the sole, and install covering (vinyl) marine plywood after using West in the voids of the existing sole.

When I go, let it be by boat, with a steady breeze on the Chesapeake with a bottle of 7-up, a bag of ice, a plastic cup, and a box of wine
