Had to re-do an original teak
and holly cabin sole
on a 36 Catalina
Those special Teak and Holly panels
are way too large to fit through the large companionway
so, had to use planks instead.
There was a great sale
on solid wood
, Brazilian hardwood that matched the original color and the teak cabinets, glued the seams with waterproof cement as I added another trimmed to shape strip and when done with a section, allowing some space for expansion at each perimeter edges, screwed the completed panel to the existing floor under it about 6" apart or so as to make a nice pattern.
Oh, that pre-finished solid wood was a joy to work
with, looked marvelous and smelled like dried rose petals!. Easy to do and inexpensive. Guaranteed for 50 years!!.
Ah, easy to carry and fits through the companionway
and has the flexibility to follow the natural curves of the cabin sole
. Highly recommended.
Otherwise, there are several linoleum type tiles of different lengths imitating wood colors that can be cut and glued in place.
