The 1982 Bayfield 25 sailboat that I have been rebuilding for the last year, originaly had a old and damaged cabin sole and plain fiberglass liner on top. Because I love the look of the true wooden boats of old, I decided to do a custom laminate floor and a sea trunk style.
The floor was milled to 1/8” thickness from mahogany and cypress. Each piece was cut and glued to the existing fibergalss sole. Then sanded and coated with three layers of epioxy resin, then varneshed for UV protection.
The cieling, or cabin liner was done using 1/4” pine beadboard glued to the fiberglass with contact adhesive the framed out and trimed in mahogany with brass screws to give accent and make for a perminent hold to the fiberglass.
The wood as with all the woodwork on Aspettami(with the exception of the sole) is satuated with Deks Olje #1 and then given 6 coats of Deks Olje #2 for the gloss
