So the teak & holly laminate is installed on the forward floor of the 38' Northern Bay. The product is made by Lonseal and if you want any more information click here. Jeff started by making a full sized paper pattern of the forward floor using tape and construction paper. The pattern was then traced onto green tape that had been adhered to the 6' X 12' sheet of teak & holly that had been unrolled on the concrete floor of Building A. Next using great care and 4 brand new razor blades the material was cut to match the pattern (leaving it large for safety's sake). Another check of the fit led to some minor modifications, then the hatch holes had to be cut out. After making another set of marks to outline the hatches the flooring was moved back across the driveway and the squares for the hatches were cut and removed. With a short staff Thursday afternoon Jeff decided to glue the hatch tops on and glue the small square that was going to be the floor in the head (leaving the primary forward floor for Friday). The Lonseal glue dries very quickly and needs to be applied to both surfaces, at the same time we had to be very careful not to get glue all over the boat. Ian (Bean) and I rolled the glue onto the flooring while Jeff and Dan Jr. concentrated on the forward floor of the boat. A decision was made to keep the glue just back from the edge of the Lonseal so we would have a place to grab the part that wasn't covered with glue. Once both batches of glue were dried the correct amount Dan Jr. perched himself on the forward bunk while the rest of us tried to get the flooring from the back deck though the companionway door. Things quickly got crowded at the doorway and I told Bean to jump into the head and grab the front of the flooring and pass it to Dan Jr. By this time Dan Sr. was helping hold the flooring that hadn't made its way through the door and then he was moved to the top of the galley, where he could control the port side of the T&H. I was next to jump down into the forward hatch surrounded by workers, glue, and Lonseal. None of the flooring has touched the floor at this point because the glue is instant bond and if we mess up we're splitting the 700 bucks 5 ways. Our leader, Jeff, was the last one through the companionway and it was up to him to stick the first bit of flooring down trying to get the hatch cut-outs lined up. What transpired next was unbelievable, the floor ended up exactly where it was suppose to. The workers left one-by-one until only Jeff was left frantically ironing out the floor with his J-Roller. Excellent teamwork, I will get a video camera next time. The edges of the flooring will be banded with actual teak and some type of thin flange will have to be added to the two hatches in the floor but the project is going extremely well to this point.
