I noticed that the floor/sole squeaked. I brought it to the surveyor's attention but got no response. This is my third sailboat so knew this wasn't the norm.
Any suggestions on how to quiet a noisy floor?
The sole decking is moving somewhat in relation to the fiberglass
frame stringers it rests on. It is not an uncommon problem and can usually be solved
by spraying a squirt or two of SailKote dry lube into the offending joint. It may take a few applications but it does work
