New floors (2017)
After the holding tank incident,
the floorboards had become soaked in black water so I got rid of
I built new floor boards from marine plywood with a teak and holly
veneer. I could only find this in 1/2" thickness which is slightly
thicker than the original floor but it worked out fine. Also, I
could only find this in mostly teak with holly inserts, which is the
opposite of the Catalina original. But it looks pretty good I think.
The floor was finished with Minwax Fast-drying Polyurethane Clear
The vertical side boards (below the seat cushions) were also
previously water-damaged (prior to my ownership so don't know
details). I replaced these as well. I cut them from marine plywood
with a teak veneer (1/2" thick, same as the original ones). These
boards I finished with Target
Coatings EM2000wvx satin, which was the original coating
according to Catalina Direct.
Overall, the interior looks pretty nice now:
