Need Help!(Marine Ply)

Post by seaangler »

Hi all, I'm in need of a little help, ive just ordered a sheet of marine ply to re-do the floor on my boat and was wondering how i would stick it down as i dont want to screw it down. If any1 could help it would be a great help and even better if you could post a link to where i could order it from.

Thanks all and i will keep you all posted on how the boat is coming along.

all depends as to what boat and what shape floor it is
if you are just sticking one sheet down you are better off fibre glassing it to the boat then fibre glassing over the whole floor which will protect it from all weathers whilst the floor is up you have a good chance to also check the stringers if they are knackered go ahead and replace them also if you have any foam there check to see if its soaked etc
hope this has helped
remember not all glues will take the salty water look at metals that are subject to sea water
good luck
