Due to a leak in the water
tank, my latest project
requires taking up the cabin sole
(possibly the most time consuming aspect of the project). Our teak
and holly cabin sole
is constructed in one piece that is secured in place by strips along the outside edges. These edges are made of teak
and holly and I have to remove the bungs and screws in order to remove the strips (not an easy way to access the bilge). When the water
tank issue is resolved I want to rethink how to replace the cabin
sole so that the bilge
is easily accessible (using the existing teak and holly). Any ideas?
These photos show the where the edges how been removed.
