Hello to all CF members. This is my first post, and I hope it's not too elementary for your consideration.
I have a 1988 Catalina 30
Mk. II in fine shape. It has the original (bare) cabin sole
with narrow teak
cover boards for the bilge
and shaft. I've been using rugs for comfort. But I like the look of a real wood cabin sole
I'd like to install something that has the appearance of teak-and-holly panels
. I want something that looks like the real thing but is durable and maintenance
free. Really don't want to drill holes in the sole if I don't have to. I'm fairly handy with tools and have a well-stocked workshop.
seems to point to the synthetic vinyl products that glue down. Are there other alternatives? Without spending a fortune (more than a $kilobuck) what are my options? Specific recommendations with photos and links to sources would be especially appreciated.
Thank you. CTexJim
