RE: Parquet floor

I have done many jobs in homes on the water and fail to see why a finish will work in the house but not in a boat

Not many house floors have constant water below their structure.

Basements usually attempt a vapor barrier , no chance in most boats due to the floor hatches.

Parquet floor

Sorry FF but I must disagree.*Our family has been doing jobs like this since the late1940's. We have yet to experience a failure. A basement floor is completly different*than a cabin sole. I believe (and experience bears it out) the the air gap and circulation*between the*sole and*bilge solves the vapor problem. If it did not, no finish would stick.

Leaving for Block Island in 30 minutes. Enjoy the rest of the week all!
