We call it the saloon. No hair styling, but lots of drinking takes place there.

Way off topic,talking of carpet, we`ve a guy in our Club whose first name is "Carpet". Never been game to ask.
If it had 'muncher' after it I could understand...

Now I am curious too...

teak and Holly Sole

I recently remodeled my Mainship 36 and part of the remodeling included a Teak and Holly Sole/Deck.
I bought the T&H from Houston Hardwoods for $122/sheet. the Sheet was 4' X 8' x 1/4' thick. I glued that onto 3/4" cabinet grade plywood. About 90% of my salon sole is comprised of removable boards for engine access.

That looks brilliant, I am going to go with that myself with a layer of the heavy plastic soundproofing underneath...
