You better let Sabre and other manufacturers know!

Re: Interior Wood Flooring

Years ago I,put down Teak parquet in 12x12 " section's over a Plywood sub floor.Easy to work with.It was held together by a cloth backing so the slant's and curves were easy to fit.Glued it down with liquid nails.I,saw the boat 20 years later still looked good.Bought the stuff at Home Depot very resonable.

Re: Wood for interior?

Yeah, some builders still use those veneers and we see the results later in the boat's life....

Yeah, that stuff was all over the place cheap in the 80's. I did two boats with it, epoxied mine down though. It was beautiful.

Re: Wood for interior/flooring (combined thread)?

While removing a bamboo floor (home depot) and finding "liquid nail" as the method of attachment I can honestly say I will never ever use that crap on my boat, or gorilla glue.
If you can't do it right now, when?

I'm sure you do Charles Cobra, I'm sure you do.
