Is there a definitive book on DIY cabin sole replacement?

The teak & holly veneer sole (@ 5' X 5') in my Bayfield 29 is due to be replaced - water damage and stains well beyond repairing.

Is there a good, comprehensive book explaining the process step by step, designed for the average diy'er with the typical power and hand tools?

I am open to coming back with something besides T & H; this book would address all options.

thx!

No.

It all depends on how your boat is constructed and what you want the final result to come out like.

Google it a few different ways. You'll find lots of threads on various forums covering how people have tackled this project in various boats.

teak and holly plywood is most commonly used. as far as modern wood working as it relates to boats, you will find a great deal of information here-

My son amd I just refinished the old floor in the endeavour. I need to replace the salon section though. World panel in west palm seems to have the best pricing.
