Floors!

We likely have as odd taste in floors as we do in boats, but I really like how this turned out.
The ultimatum was given on the stinky old red carpet, so we went with this tough and water resistant hardwood. (I like teak well enough but have plenty on Klee Wyck)

Very nice. I did my last boat in maple, not everyone needs teak floors.

All my interior soles are teak with an occasional throw rug. I wouldn't have it any other way.

Flybridge was teak, we tore it out. Lower decks are teak and are getting on my nerves. They have been refinished and now the caulk is deteriorating. They may have to go.

IMHO teak belongs in the forest (or inside).

Lumber Liquidators, some version of Acacia prefinished. The wood has this wavy texture and the finish not satin, so the floor does not seem slippery at all. Has a decent grip to it.
I was not the installer but watched some and it was very hard to cut.
That was half of the Winter project on Libra. This morning I am heading to the yard with her for a haul so we can sandblast the hull and start with fresh coatings. May as well make some progress while we are sequestered!

Bill, I think that looks great. I'm with you that after awhile teak gets boring. It's pretty but lacks the character of the wood you chose.

The worst job I have ever done on a boat is recaulking the teak deck on my sundeck. Never again.

Another person that doesn't like carpet on boats.... Great job... What about hatches? how were they handled?

Underway on a blue bird day in the PNW. What a treat after being landlocked for too long.

Hatches: I would love to welcome you aboard and give you five minutes to find the four hatches. I suspect you would not. They are blended into the floor and come up with a four suction cup apparatus.
These are not hatches I need access to on any regular basis except for hull inspection. This guy did beautiful work.
Engine room accessed from the companionway.

We had always had carpeting in our boats until the current boat that has teak and holly decking. Love it inside. It is so easy to keep clean with all the dog hair from our Lab.

One of the things I was a little concerned about in the switch from carpet to the more rigid flooring was sound level. I suspected the carpet was doing more sound absorption than the wood would do and this was generally a pretty quiet boat, 57-61dB underway at full steam.
I am pleased to report that there was no change that I could detect.

I have to disagree with you guys on carpet in a boat. I've had 4 boats with teak decks throughout and all 4 were noisy. Switched to carpet on last 3 boats and found it to be more comfortable on bare feet, much quieter in the salon and no harder to keep up than wood. No scratches or dents, no refinishing, etc. When old and worn, roll it up and get new!

I've currently got carpet everywhere down below other than the heads and galley, which are teak parquet. I'd love to ditch the carpet in the salon at some point, probably for Nautolex or another similar flooring material (with sound insulation added). The carpet in the staterooms will stay, however, as it's lower traffic (easier to keep clean) and comfy on the feet when getting up in the morning.

My biggest dilemma is how to deal with the rarely-used hatches for extra engine room access. Currently, only the main engine room access hatch is cut through the carpet, to get to the others you have to peel back part of the carpet. I'd say about 80% of the salon floor (by area) is hatches, so it might be a challenge to deal with that nicely.

I'd love to see some pictures of how the hatches on Libra work with the new flooring (which looks great).

Foulweather Bluff is certainly not today. Really flat.
Fair weather and fair current. Note SOG!

When the world is this screwed up, there is nothing quite like a boat ride for perspective.

The acacia timber you have reminded me of coromandel (above). Your timber is richly figured.
