Source for cabin sole

I want to replace my cabin sole, which was made of teak n holly veneered marine plywood. It has rotted after a bad leak flooded them.

My problem is I can't seem to find a source of the 4x8 sheets here in California, and shipping charges are really expensive. All the results in my google search were on the east coast.

Does anyone know of a place where I can buy this material out here?

Re: Source for cabin sole

Try Frost Hardwood Lumber Company | Quality Wood and Related Products for the Woodworking Industry They're Frost in Miramar CA, just north of San Diego

Or a bit further away, but they'll definitely have it www.Edensaw.com

Also, for the Bay Area, dig through an issue of Latitude 38 - The West's Leading Sailing and Marine Magazine & look up the major yards in that neck of the woods (no pun intended), they'll know who has it.

And a resource for Portland/OR, would be to contact Schooner Creek Boatworks. Pretty much all they do is custom boats, & refits. So they'll have POC's, if not the links you need, right on their website.

Re: Source for cabin sole

You can also get what you are looking for here in Bellingham, WA. at Windsor Plywood, in three different thicknesses. It is good stuff and I have used it. Good luck in replacing the cabin sole.

You also might want to look at the Amtico synthetic teak/holly. Much less work in the long run.

Re: Source for cabin sole

I have run into the same issue, check prices for teak and holly ply rather than veneer. Veneer is almost three times the cost of the ply. Yukon Lumber is where we ended up. Luckily they're only about 90 miles from me.

Thanks OBX. Yes, I meant the plywood version. But Yukon is back on the east coast. Do you know what they charge for shipping?

Re: Source for cabin sole

Some guys will get Teak, Sapele, or similar ply, & then machine it so that they can insert the Holly (or whatever) strips on their own. It's simple enough to do on a table saw, or with a router & a guide for same.

Also I've also seen it done a couple of other ways:
- Teak (or similar) ply, with strips of white skateboard tape in lieu of Holly. And when they get grungy, you just pitch'em & lay down new ones for $20.
Not exaxtly something you can do with Holly.
- Teak (or similar) ply, with strips of white sand epoxied into strips on top of the ply, & then epoxied or varnished over.

And one thing to think on is this: If you're boat's real dark, & has a cave like feel inside, if you go with a lighter toned ply for flooring, instead of Teak, then...

Thanks Uncivilized. However, I have neither the tools or the skills to rout and fill myself. Still researching the plywood option.

Have it done in Rio Dulce. They will epoxy strips of the local teak and a hard white wood similar to holly onto treated ply and apply a three component finish.

Shipping rates for 4X8 sheets of plywood kill the deal. Due to the size it will start around $250 and go up depending on how far you're going. Several sheets going from Boston to CA could be $700-$800 or more.

Hi Flysci. So you made it to the west coast from the Caribbean. Hope it was a great trip.

I am a bit surprised that you have not found teak and holly ply anywhere on the west coast. Bet something pops up eventually.

I'm looking at the same job myself in the future and am kind of intrigued with the suggestion to use plain veneer plywood and glue strips of holly (or other suitable light colored wood) on top. The white strips would stand proud of the plywood but that might be a good thing. Might add a little more traction to the cabin sole.
