Stinkboat Forum, Rag and Stick Forum...just not very catchy names.

I'll stick with Trawler Forum!!

I agree Formica is some tough stuff and it's perfect for counter tops . I use it wherever it makes sense . It's been around a long time .

When we bought Doriana, from the wooden boat enthusiast son and Executor of the deceased owner(son was buying a gaff rigged schooner built of huon pine and needed the mooring at their waterfront home freed up), he criticized the laminate used in the 2 areas as out of keeping with the quality of the joinery generally. That made me think "why?", I realised it had to be for sun durability behind the windscreen, and general durability on the table top. It doesn`t look so bad.

Grand Banks of a certain age use it. On the dashboard, some doors etc.

That confirms it. If I use my boom for a crane, I've got myself a trawler.

The only laminate on our 1973 GB is the face of the engine instrument panel in front of the helm wheel in the main cabin. Every other teak surface in the boat is solid teak. The bulkheads, walls, door panels, etc. are painted mahogany.
