Default Teak & Holly Plywood

I'm looking for a source for 1/2"x48"x96" Teak & Holly plywood. I want to get rid of this nasty carpet that's only 3 years old. It's impossible to keep clean. Can anyone recommend a good source? Preferably close to Hilton Head, SC.

Thanks,
John

I did this project a couple of years ago but could not find 1/2". The only thickness I had available was 1/4" so I laminated 1/4" marine ply to the teak/holly to get the 1/2" thickness I wanted. I got mine locally but found the 1/4" was pretty easy to source from any lumber yard in the marine communities.

YMMV

Another option may be Teak & Holly laminate flooring. Go to http://www.defender.com/

and search on "Teak & Holly".

I saw recently some "composite" teak and holly looking flooring. It looked great, but I think it was hot under foot in the sun.

I believe your talking about interior cabin floor? The finish vaneer is very thin and should have a clear polyureathane or clear coat resin coating. They ship. I think your talking about 250 dollars a 4x8 sheet shipped . I just did a boat a few weeks ago but the boat owner got the wood.

Thanks all, but I'm strictly looking for an interior application. I may do he cockpit later but that would be another project. I have a piece or sample of 1/2" Teak & Holly plywood that was given to me years ago. I just don't seem to find it locally. I thought it might be available in Chaleston, savannah or upper Florida area.

rwidman....I looked at that product but I could not get my head around the install. I have 3 hatches in the salon plus another in the galley to deal with and I don't understand the myriad of seams coming together seamlessly. I think I could do the wood or plywood.
Bly.......I had planned on putting several coats of satin poly down. I know that the veneer is thin, but I really want to get rid of that carpet. Where was yours shipped from?

Try Atlantic Veneers in Beaufort NC.

Also, take a look at Amtico. Low/no maintenance and looks good.

You don't want to do that if you are talking about Minwax or some other home coating. On a boat, even in the cabin a far better choice is a marine varnish made for decks, which is a little harder, but still somewhat elastic. Interlux's Goldspar, which is a poly modified varnish seems to do well on cabin soles. Regular poly is just too rigid to withstand the temperature and humidity changes in a boat.

I just thought I would mention it in case you hadn't heard of it.

The first Camano I saw had a teak and holly sole and it was beautifull. The one I bought does not, it's carpeted and vinyl in the galley. The original upchaarge for teak and holly was about $4K.

I've thought about doing mine, just the salon. There are two hatches and you may be right, plywood might be easier.

Thanks.
LI32.....I appreciate the tip. I've used poly before on floors and I wanted a "satin" finish. I'll make sure that I use Varnish. I'm actually making some Teak panels for overhead lights and I used a gloss varnish on them.
Rwidman....I agree the floors look good. I am also after the ease of cleaning. I think it will take 4-5 sheets of the plywood to do the salon and galley. A couple more if I get real ambitious and decide to do the steps, companionway and head. It's a tight fit for me so those areas may remain carpet. I have a few planks left from my covering board project that I can use to make 1/4" strips to outline the hatches and hatch openings. I think this would be more durable and look better.

I understand about the cleaning. My carpet is a solid grey and anything and everything leaves a spot or stain. I bought an upright vaccum with brushes and it gets the dirt but not the stains. It also doesn't get around table legs or into tight spaces.

Using plywood, how would you make the end seams look good if it's over eight feet long ?

I won't have any lengths that long. My salon is approx 6 ft at the longest and then one step down to the galley. Galley's longest length is about 42" before the steps down again. I think I could make some solid teak edges at the steps and maybe around some of the salon walls. Sort of a short baseboard. The steps down are gelcoat on the sides but I think I could fit them close enough.

I did notice that one outfit on the internet will make longer pieces of plywood. I assume they epoxy and sand at the joint. Just my guess though.

I guess I should measure mine before I think any more about it.

One thing though, carpet does cover the hatch hinges. It's going to be a little tricky with plywood or solid wood.

I guess I should also look at the Amtico and Lonseal products. Does anyone have any expierence with this type of sole? Slippery? Durable? How difficult to install?

Thanks,
John
