How to Repair Your Cabin Sole? [Ultimate Guide]

When you think about sailing and sailboat maintenance, few people would stop to give much attention to the cabin sole. Thousands of pages of instructions have been written about how to repair your engine or tune your rig, but very little has been written about the floor of the cabin.

Despite the fact that it receives very little attention in the boating community, the cabin sole is actually a lot more important than you might think. After all, nobody wants to step into the cabin and end up standing in the bilge!

In this article, we are going to explore some of the most common issues that sailors experience with their cabin soles, and how to repair or replace the cabin sole after it has incurred damage. To learn everything that you need to know about the care, maintenance, and repair of sailboat cabin soles, keep reading!

What is a Cabin Sole and What Materials are Used to Build Them?

The cabin sole is the floor that you stand on in the cabin of a sailboat. The sole typically rests on floorboards that separate the bilge from the main cabin interior.

Depending on the make of your boat, a variety of materials can be used to construct the cabin sole. Below, we will review some of the most popular types of materials that are used to build a cabin sole.

In many smaller and cheaper cruising sailboats, the cabin sole is built from the same fiberglass used to construct the hull and the deck.

When used to build the cabin sole, the fiberglass is often “cored”, which means that there are two layers of fiberglass foam or wood in the center to stiffen the material without the extra weight and cost of solid fiberglass.

Most sailboats with a fiberglass cabin sole have one or more removable access ports to inspect the bilge below. To make the cabin more inviting, many sailors cover the fiberglass sole with a rug or small carpet.

Plywood with veneer

This is one of the most common materials that is used to build the cabin sole on commercially produced sailboats. With this type of construction, the cabin sole is built primarily from plywood, with a small layer of hardwood veneer to give it a professional look.

Plywood with veneer-style cabin soles can look almost identical to solid hardwood if they have been professionally built. But after long periods of exposure to water, the veneer can peel off, leaving the plywood exposed to potential rot.

If your vessel has this type of cabin sole, make sure to check regularly for any delamination or moisture getting into the plywood, as this can cause serious problems later on.

Solid teak or holly

This is by far the best type of cabin sole for a cruising sailboat. If it’s properly built, a solid teak or holly cabin sole should last longer than both the boat and its owner!

The only disadvantage is the high cost and difficulty to obtain the materials, as hardwoods become harder to buy.

If you are looking for a middle path between solid teak and a veneer-style cabin sole, bamboo may be the perfect alternative.

Bamboo cabin soles have just recently hit the market, but they have very positive reviews so far. Bamboo is much cheaper to obtain than teak and it’s fast-growing, so it’s easier on the environment too!

What Damage Can Occur to Your Cabin Sole Over Time?

Due to its position at the bottom of the boat, the cabin sole is exposed to damage from two sources.

First, there is the damage from above – wear and tear from walking, gear being dropped or water spilling on top of the cabin sole. But the most common source of damage is from below.

Since the bilge sits just below the cabin sole, water in the bilge can cause the cabin sole to accumulate moisture and rot over time. That’s why it’s so important to try to keep your bilges dry as often as possible and to regularly check your cabin sole for rot or other water damage.

How to Fix Damage to Your Cabin Sole

So what to do when your cabin sole is showing signs of wear and tear? The remedy to repair the damage depends entirely upon how extensive the problem is.

Sometimes the surface of the cabin sole starts to fade over time. When this happens, it’s often possible to simply apply teak oil to the faded areas, which can restore minor faded areas back to their original shine.

If your cabin sole is made with veneer and it’s beginning to peel off, then it will take a little more work to get it back in top shape.

First, peel off the veneer on the damaged areas and check the plywood to confirm that there is no rot or moisture in the wood below. If the plywood is totally intact, you may choose to simply replace the veneer with a new layer. When the plywood is damaged, it’s time to think about replacing the entire cabin sole.

With hardwood cabin soles, it’s unlikely that you will need to make extensive repairs unless it has been exposed to a large amount of water for a long period of time.

Sometimes the wood may develop black spots which can be removed by sanding until the discolored area is removed and re-varnishing the exposed wood. If there are small areas with rot, you can cut out the damaged wood and a small portion of the surrounding wood and replace it with new hardwood.

For fiberglass soles, it may be possible to repair small sections by cutting out the damaged areas and applying layers of new fiberglass and epoxy over the damaged section.

How to Replace Your Cabin Sole

If the damage to the cabin sole is extensive, it’s possible that you may have to replace the entire sole with new material. This can be quite a daunting task, especially on larger vessels, so it’s recommended to hire a professional shipwright to get it done right if you aren’t experienced with boatbuilding.

The challenge with replacing the cabin sole is cutting the wood to fit all the curves and irregular surfaces on a boat. If you decide to do it yourself, here are the steps to replacing your cabin sole:

  • Completely remove the old cabin sole from the boat. As you do this, try not to damage the hull or any structure that supports the integrity of the boat. If you can, keep the old cabin sole as intact as possible to use as a template for the new sole.
  • Make sure that all of the stringers or frames that support the sole are intact. The new sole will depend on them to be able to support any serious weight.
  • Select and purchase the material that you will use to build the new sole. Make sure that it’s compatible with a marine environment, and confirm that you have enough material for the build.
  • Cut the new sole to fit the floor of your cabin. The easiest way to do this is to use the old sole as a pattern.
  • Fit the new sole in place and make sure that it fits perfectly. Make adjustments as necessary to get the ideal shape.
  • Secure the new flooring to the supports underneath. Most boaters will screw the sole in place, using wooden bungs to cover up the screws.
  • If the material is not pre-finished, sand and varnish the sole until it has the desired appearance you want for your boat.

Cabin Sole Maintenance to Avoid Future Issues

In order to avoid having to replace your cabin sole or make regular repairs, there are some simple steps you can take to keep your cabin sole in good condition. Below are some easy things you can do to maintain a beautiful and functional cabin sole.

  • Keep the bilge dry! The number one source of water damage and rot in a cabin sole is water from the bilge. Install an automatic bilge pump, and sponge up any remaining water to keep the bilge and cabin sole dry at all times.
  • Try to minimize the amount of humidity inside the cabin by providing adequate ventilation (and heat, if you keep your boat in a wet and cold climate).
  • Do everything you can to prevent water from entering the cabin via an open hatch, window, vent, or the companionway. If water does find its way below and ends up on the cabin sole, mop it up as soon as possible.
  • Check the cabin sole (both above and below, if you have an access port to the bilge) for moisture at least two or three times per week. If you find water, follow it to the source and eliminate the cause of the leak, like the marine toilet leak.
  • Cover areas with heavy foot traffic with a non-slip rug or carpet to avoid excessive wear and tear to the surface of the cabin sole. Make sure that the rug is secure, so that it won’t cause your crew to slip and fall.
  • Secure any heavy gear that could fall onto the cabin sole in heavy seas to prevent damage to your floors.
  • Wipe down the entire surface of the cabin sole with teak oil at least once per month and clean it regularly with wood soap to maintain the shine.

With proper care and maintenance, you can expect your cabin sole to last for a long time.

Of the different types of material used to build cabin soles, plywood with veneer is most prone to water damage.

For those who can afford it, a hardwood sole that is properly installed and maintained can be in great shape for many decades!

No matter what type of cabin sole you have in your boat, the most important thing is to keep it dry!

If you can avoid water damage and keep the sole from getting broken by loose objects in the cabin, chances are you will have a beautiful and functional cabin floor for years to come.

Can someone tell me what the options are for replacing the flooring in my cabin. Does the wood come pre-stained like that in kits? Please let me know what's involved in the installation.  

You can buy veneered teak and holly plywood and cut it to size. Get's pricey. You can also buy regular marine plywood, with a clean veneer (I forget the designation for that) and stain it yourself. What do you have now and how nice or budget are you looking to make it? If the existing flooring was high quality (not just veneer), it may be restorable.

World Panel Products in Florida and North Carolina make up the floors for boats. They have many choices ranging from teak and holly to mahogany and holly and much more. They have plywood as well as plastic options. Walk into their showroom and you see the floors they make on the floor. I am not connected with them but recognize good work.  

Any full service lumber yard should be able to supply teak-and-holly faced plywood. It doesn'tt need to be marine quality ply, you should epoxy the bottoms and edges anyway If you are not a competent woodworker, you should be able to find a marine-oriented carpenter or even the yard who will cut you a new floor using the original pieces as a pattern.

Building, restoration, and repair with epoxy


Replacing a Small Boat Cabin Sole

By Jeff Wright — Vice President of Technical Services

The amount of wood used in a production fiberglass boat is significant; it is used for many things such as stringers, bulkheads, floors, and backers. Higher quality production boats often use marine grade plywood for these applications but it can still be damaged by long-term exposure to water.

The cabin being disassembled.

My personal boat, Funktional , is a 1986 Formula 242 LS that had a cabin sole that became waterlogged and lost its stiffness. A limber hole that became plugged over 25 years ago finally resulted in an uneasy feeling when standing inside the cabin. When I purchased the boat 10 years ago the sponginess was barely noticeable, but after several more seasons the flexing became obvious. When my 24-pound dog jumped from the vee berth and the cabin sole deflected, it was clear the plywood had deteriorated. I decided that it needed to be repaired and took advantage of the Michigan winter to tackle the project.

The first step was to disassemble the furniture in the cabin so that the carpet could be easily removed. It is important to realize that the closet and wet bar cabinets were installed in the boat before the deck was set in place and after the carpet was installed. This means these cabinets cannot be removed. I was able to loosen these assemblies enough to pull out the carpet from underneath the cabinetry.

The cabin with the carpeting removed.

With the carpet removed the actual cabin sole could be cut out. It was bonded in place with a layer of chopped strand mat that was applied over the top of the floor and up onto the hull bottom and stringers. A rotary cut off tool with an abrasive disc was used to cut off the tabbing, by keeping the guard close to the surface the amount of dust was minimized. I took care to ensure I was cutting into this chopped mat tabbing and not the hull; on some boats it may not be obvious and running the cut off tool into the hull bottom would create a lot of damage to repair.

The cabin sole with a layer of chopped strand mat.

Aft floor support softened by water damage.

To help locate the position of the new sole, a small lip of the chopped mat tabbing was left on the hull bottom and stringers.

After the fiberglass was cut around the floor and I could remove the plywood from the cabin it became clear why it was spongy. Not only was it waterlogged, it had a crack in it. The manufacturing defect that I mentioned earlier was also visible; a limber hole had been clogged with flotation foam. When the boat is on the trailer water can flow forward and this water did not have a good way to completely escape back to the bilge pump.

Waterlogged, cracked cabin sole

New cabin sole with aft support frame.

New cabin sole set in place.

The fiberglass will hold the plywood in place and seal any gaps between the sole and the hull.

A small frame supported the aft section of the floor which was also soft and would be replaced with the new sole, but the cleats that supported the companionway step were in great shape other than the screw holes for the step were stripped. I swabbed these holes with epoxy to give the screws something to bite into.

The original floor was ½” marine grade plywood, and considering the age of the boat and the amount of moisture it was exposed to it performed well for over 25 years. It was about 2′ wide and about 4′ long.

I did not have any ½” marine plywood and did not want to invest in a large sheet to only cut off 2 feet. This application is not critical to the strength of the hull, and now that the limber hole was unplugged it will stay much drier.

I had an old sheet of ¾” AC exterior plywood and decided that by filling in the exposed knots, applying a light layer of WEST SYSTEM 4 oz. fiberglass on each side and thoroughly sealing the end grain around the perimeter it would be durable enough for this application. In addition, by shortening the length 2 inches I was able to orient the grain across the panel which will have increased strength because originally the grain ran lengthwise.

Please keep in mind that marine plywood is superior for boat building and for certain structures would be considered required.

The new sole was set in place using the outline of the old tabbing as a guide. A perfect fit was not needed because the new fiberglass tabbing bridged a small gap and the carpet covers the entire area. The sole rests on the hull bottom and the tabbing holds it down in place so there was no need to bond the plywood side to the hull bottom. Weights were placed on the sole to hold firmly against the hull while the tabbing cured.

New cabin sole installed with WEST SYSTEM 737 17 oz. biaxial fiberglass on each side.

The surfaces that the fiberglass would be bonded to were sanded by hand with 80-grit sandpaper, once again to keep dust to a minimum. I used WEST SYSTEM 737 fabric, the first piece I placed down was 4″ wide and then the second piece was 6″ wide. The biaxial fabric easily conformed to the needed shape and the differing widths reduced the chance of the edge being felt underneath the carpet.

All of this work was done in a garage in Michigan in March. To ensure that the cold weather would not inhibit epoxy cure, I prepared the sole in my heated basement and used a small electric heater to warm the cabin when using the epoxy to tab in the sole. WEST SYSTEM 105 Resin with 205 Fast Hardener was the best choice for use in cool weather. Other advantages of using WEST SYSTEM Epoxy include low odor, excellent adhesion to the wood and existing hull laminate, and superior water resistance.

After the epoxy had cured I wiped it down with water to remove any amine blush that may prevent the carpet adhesive from adhering and sanded any fiberglass strands that were poking up.

The finished sole repair with carpet installed.

I found a plush marine carpet from Cabela’s and purchased outdoor carpet adhesive from my local big box store. The installation of the carpet was most difficult part of the project. The new carpet could not be installed underneath the cabinet and wet bar so I had to closely trim the carpet with razor blades and a pair Swiss Army knife scissors. Seam sealer was used to prevent it from fraying.

When I started the project I was most worried about spilling epoxy inside the boat. By using lots of plastic sheeting I am happy to say not a drop got onto any upholstery or gelcoat. Unfortunately, the carpet installation did not go as well. The carpet has to fit around several corners and there was really nowhere to stand as I put it in place onto the sole so things got a little messy. It all worked out in the end, I am sure many people are more intimidated by the fiberglass portion of this repair but I found the carpet was actually the biggest challenge.

The repair has made the cabin feel much more secure when stepping down from the cockpit, and new carpet really makes a very comfortable berth for the crew.

The crew approves of the new repair job.

What Is the Best Material for a Cabin Sole Replacement?

Your boat is the one place in the world where you feel like you can truly get away. It means hours of sun, wind, and the gentle rocking of the water. If you’re spending quite a bit of time on your boat lately, you may wonder about the little things you can do to enhance its aesthetic value. One simple option? Cabin sole replacement. What makes the best cabin sole flooring, though, and what should you consider as you make a purchase? Take a look.

As you think about what you want for your boat, keep in mind there are several features your cabin sole must-have.

  • A solid and stable surface that allows for walking and standing.
  • A higher level of durability. Since flooring installation in a boat is a cumbersome task, you preferably want a material that will last several decades.
  • Anti-slip technology. This is one space that is going to be wet a lot! The last thing you want is for someone to slip and fall.

The Right Flooring Choice

So, what flooring should you have installed in your boat? Here are a few choices to consider.

Hardwood: Wood flooring offers proven long-term durability. Today there are several types of hardwood available for boat flooring including oak, pine, cedar, hickory, mahogany, and several others. But the one that is most popular is oak, primarily for its supreme water resistance, flexibility, strength, and durability.

Hardwood flooring can be installed on the interior floors and in the cabin as well as the rear deck. Keep in mind, though, like all flooring, hardwood can be slippery, especially in the presence of water. Hence it is vital that you have an added non-slip coat added to the finished product.

The one drawback to wood is that water can warp it. You’ll need to be careful to wipe up any spills, as well as waves or spray that make their way into the cabin. Wood will rot if exposed to water for a long period. This is very rare because it means ignoring a larger problem first. Overall, hardwood is generally the best option for a cabin sole replacement, and it will mean you won’t have to face another replacement for a very long time.

Talk to your boat floor installer about how a hardwood floor will respond to humidity. There are ways to install hardwood that allow for a little bit of expansion and contraction.

Vinyl & Laminate: Vinyl and laminate flooring are also ideal for the interior or the cabin of the boat. Let’s tackle these two together. Their performance as interior boat flooring options is very similar. Their greatest strength is water resistance. Moisture isn’t an issue. Humidity can be, but so long as there’s air flow or air conditioning through the cabin, you should be fine. The latest vinyl and laminate flooring has been specially designed to be tough and resist environmental elements.

Vinyl planks can be replaced easily. This allows for easy inspection under the floor if you’re looking for seepage. The wood-like vinyl planks are specially made to counter the marine environment and come with an EVA foam which is easy on the feet and yet very moisture resistant- thus can be used on the deck as well as in any area of the boat that is exposed to moisture. Another major advantage of vinyl planks is that they can be recycled or reused. For example, if the boat is being remodeled, the planks can be reused or the planks can even be transferred to another watercraft. If the cabin ever gets water-logged for whatever reason, the vinyl planks can be removed, air dried, and reinstalled with ease.

However, the key to installing vinyl planks for a boat means selecting the right type. Select vinyl planks that are durable. Ensure your choice is thick and UV resistant.

Carpeting : This has always been a popular flooring option for the cabin chiefly because of its aesthetics. Advancements in carpeting construction mean that carpeting is now more durable and has a greater lifespan. There are even hypo-allergenic options for allergy sufferers. Of course, carpeting demands regular cleaning and strict attention to spills and spray. In most cases, the carpet has to have a backing layer to enhance the functionality, durability and protect the subfloor from water damage. The most important thing to understand is that only carpets made from nylon, olefin, polyester, and polypropylene are suitable for boats- these materials are hardy, strong, and also moisture resistant. The two basic types of carpets include the twist carpet and looped carpets. Twist carpet is where the fibers are tightly twisted in place and directly connected to the back of the carpet. These carpets do function well but can be difficult to clean and tend to wear out quickly. In looped carpets, the fibers are fixed into the carpet backing. They tend to accumulate less dirt, are easier to clean, and have a longer lifespan.

Making the Right Choice

With advances in technology, newer flooring materials for watercraft are appearing on the market regularly. The choice of boat flooring material depends on the cost, durability, toughness, water resistance, and aesthetics. For most owners, a combination of flooring materials may be used to protect different parts of the boat depending on the frequency of use and exposure to the marine environment.

Finishing the Cabin Sole

Protection and nonskid options to choose from..

Im in the process of installing new teak and holly veneer in the interior of my boat. I have the old floor out and have the new plywood/veneer cut. I am ready to varnish/seal the new veneer, but I am in gridlock as to how to go about it.

Im using West System 105 Epoxy Resin on the bottom and edges, but Im not sure what to use for the top side to make it look like showroom new. Im looking for a varnish recommendation for a nice quality finish.

Don Voigt Big Bite, 1985 S2 9.2 Port Washington, Wis.

The challenge with finishing a veneer-and-plywood sole is finding a product that offers long-lasting protection for the wood and gives a secure footing when the cabin sole is wet. Varnishes suitable for protection and durability do not have intrinsically good nonskid characteristics.

Faced with this dilemma, we recommend using a satin-finish, one-part polyurethane varnish to protect the thin veneer and plywood, and adding some nonskid aggregate to the final coats to reduce the slippery-when-wet effect. If you don’t want to use the aggregate on the whole sole, at least add it in when finishing the areas at the base of the companionway and outside the head, where a sole is most likely to get wet.

For brush-on applications, PSeditors have had good luck with Interluxs polyurethane Goldspar Satin, Pettits ZSpar Captains 2067 (clear) or 1015 (amber), and Epifanes High Gloss. The products also have scored well in our past tests for weathering outdoors, so they should have an even longer life in a cabin.

Wood-finish makers echoed our recommendations, and advised that if you opt to go with a high-gloss varnish like the Epifanes or Interluxs Schooner, be sure to use a flattening agent with it, or, in the case of Epifanes, replace the two final coats with the companys Rubbed Effect Interior Varnish. Having a satin or matte finish helps to minimize slipping.

According to Interlux, Cetol products can be used on soles, but in our opinion, the relatively soft coatings will not offer enough protection for veneer, and given the amount of traffic a cabin sole sees, they would not wear well.

For aggregate options, you have a few choices. We recommend using salt or crushed walnut shell powder with varnish, rather than the canned aggregate sold by marine paint makers and often used with deck paints. Others prefer pumice or finely ground sand. Both the walnut shell and salt methods are easy to touch up and re-apply.

You can find ground walnut shell powder at larger boat yards, paint supply companies, and Harbor Freight. To use it: After building up a uniform series of base coats (usually six to eight coats, with the first ones thinned some) and letting it cure, place strips of -inch masking tape over the centerline of the -inch holly strips, and then mix the powder in the final coat of varnish. This results in nonskid stripes that are near in color to the teak, with enough of the sole left glossy to add a warm feel to the cabin. If you plan to add this or any other nonskid material to a finish, be sure to run it by the varnish companys technical crew before applying it.

Adding salt to a varnish finish is a little different. First, build up a good protective base, and allow it to cure completely. Then, mask off the areas to be made nonskid, and lay on a heavy coat of the same finish. Heavily sprinkle it with coarse salt; we use a grinder held 2 to 3 feet above the surface. Start with a light coat, moving back and forth until a uniform coating is obtained. Once the coating dries, rinse away the salt crystals with fresh water. Because its water-soluble, the salt disappears, leaving a surface stippled with tiny indentation where the crystals once were. This offers traction without taking away from the finish.

Since you have the luxury of applying the finish with the sole out of the boat this time, take the opportunity to build up a very good base for protection. The more coats you put on, the better the protection. Also, do a few test patches on scrap veneer with salt and with walnut powder to see which you prefer aesthetically.

Cabin soles are a challenge to re-do. Do a maintenance coat once every year or two to get longer life out of the finish and hopefully avoid a full takedown for many years.

Cabin sole replacement

Discussion in ' Fiberglass and Composite Boat Building ' started by chowdan , Aug 19, 2019 .

Hey all, As i go through my rebuild I have been pondering this one for a while. I rebuilt the stringers due to rot and have just some cheapo plywood on the floor while I figure out what I was going to use for the cabinsole. I've decided I'm going to go with T&G Maple as I like the durability(hardness) of maple and the bright color of it. I am hoping that if I seal all surfaces of the maple prior to adhering down with thinned WEST Systems that it will stay "relatively" stable and not absorb moisture at rot. My biggest question to figure out now is, what would one recommend for securing the boards down? The bundles come in a range of lengths, ranging from 10" to 42" long. Each board will be 23/32" x 2 1/2". My current thought is to use 3/8" marine ply(have access to a few sheets of good quality ply of this thickness), something like sika 291 to adhere the T&G planks to the ply before cutting out along my templates. Basically the process would be: #1: template out the area with thick templating paper #2: using the 3/8" hydrotek ply do a "rough" cut of my template #3: get maple put together to fit the templated subfloor ply #4: Epoxy the heck out of ply on all edges with 4-8 coats #4a: Using wood glue, put the maple T&G together to create solid surface #5: Epoxy the heck of out the maple on all surfaces(including edges) - 4-8 coats #6: Smear Sika 291(or similar compound) on top surface of ply #6a: Lay maple down and toss some sandbags ontop to evenly distribute out the downward pressure for adhesion #7: Clean up any ooze out and mark template #8: Route along template for prefect cut The Other process I may follow would be to basically follow what I describe below, but instead after step 4, i would tab in the epoxy coated ply floor in place, THEN install the maple sole ontop of that which as been put in place.

Why work so hard. Do the second option of tabbing down a sub-sole then covering with decorative flooring. No matter how careful you are, the templates will shift.

How to Format a Teacher Resume

Before you can educate the recruiter on your skills and experiences, you need to choose the most suitable resume format for teaching.

You see, even the best applicant needs a resume format that is easy to read and follow. 

With “ reverse-chronological ” being the most common resume format , we recommend this format for teachers. It highlights your most recent work experience first, and then works back through your history and skills.

reverse chronological format teacher

You could also try the two following formats:

  • Functional Resume - This format focuses on your skills, which makes it the best format for teachers that are highly-skilled, but have little in the way of classroom experience. 
  • Combination Resume - This format mixes both “Functional” and “Reverse-Chronological” formats, which means it focuses on both your teaching skills AND teaching experience. 

Stick to a one-page teacher resume. This shows that you’re able to information brief and precise. Feel free to check out our one-page resume templates for inspiration.

Use a Teacher Resume Template

As a teacher, you will likely work with Microsoft Word on a daily basis. 

However, this is not one of those times.

The program is best avoided if you want to avoid formatting issues. 

Use a teacher resume template for a resume that stays structurally strong. Any of the following templates can be easily tailored for a teacher application.

What to Include in a Teacher Resume

The main sections in a teacher resume are:

  • Contact Information
  • Work Experience/Teaching Experience

For a teacher resume that stands out from other applications, add these optional sections:

  • Awards & Certification
  • Volunteer Experience

Interests & Hobbies

Keep reading to find out how to ace each of the above sections.

For an in-depth rundown on which sections to use, check out our guide on What to Put on a Resume .

How to Write Your Contact Information Section

When grading papers, you know that every word or digit matters. This is also true with your contact information section. Any mistakes made in your phone number or email can render your whole application useless. 

For your contact information section, include:

  • Title – Align this to the job title , which is “Teacher”
  • Phone Number – Ensure there are zero errors
  • Email Address – Make sure to use a professional email address ( [email protected] ), and not your 6th grade email address ( [email protected] )
  • Location – Applying for a job abroad? Mention your location
  • Optional - relevant social media profiles.

How to Write a Teacher Resume Summary or Objective

Here’s a question for the class:

How long do you think recruiters spend reading through the average resume?

If you said less than a minute, you would be correct.

This means your resume needs to really impress within this short timeframe. 

The nest question is, what can you do to make the most important easy to see and consume?

Simple: use a resume summary or objective .

These are punchy paragraphs that go on top of your resume, just under the contact section. 

The main difference between the two sections is that:

A resume summary is a short summary of your teaching experiences and achievements. It is the best option for teachers who have taught for multiple years.

  • Passionate English Teacher with a focus on American literature seeks a permanent position at XYZ School. Highlights from five years of teaching experience include improving college admission success rate by 40% at ABC High School. Excited about leveraging 5000 hours of teaching experience to give an inspiring classroom experience for your students.

On the other hand, the resume objective focuses on your professional goals and aspirations. It is ideal for entry-level teaching candidates or individuals who are seeking a change in their professional career. 

  • Motivated English Literature graduate seeking the role of English teacher at ABC High School. Experience includes supervising classes at XYZ Middle School for 60 days over a 3 month period. Skills include classroom management, grading to strict time restraints, and utilizing whiteboard technology. 

So, which one is best for you? 

Well, a summary is suited for teachers who have a lot of classroom experience, whereas an objective is suited for those who are new to the world of teaching (student, graduate, or switching careers).

How to Make Your Teaching Work Experience Stand Out

The best way to prove your worth as a teacher is with your previous work experience .

Sure, the recruiter will want to see that you have lots of subject knowledge, but nothing builds confidence more than your professional experience.

Follow this layout in your experience section:

  • Position name
  • Company Name
  • Responsibilities & Achievements

Elementary School Teacher

Hinchley Wood School

04/2017 - 01/2021

  • Kept pass rates above 80% from 2017-2020
  • Improved attendance by 12% in the first school year
  • Graded classroom papers for 12 classes of 30+ pupils

As you may notice, the above example focuses on the candidate’s best achievements.

So, instead of saying:

“Taught children for three years”

“Kept pass rates above 80% from 2017-2020”

The second statement goes into specific details that show you’re a great teacher.

Use the job description to help you. Look to see if there is anything in the job description that matches your work history. If there is, include it in this section.

What if You Don’t Have Work Experience?

Maybe you’re a graduate who hasn’t worked before?

Or maybe you want a career change?

Whatever your situation, there are options. 

The main option is to use a portfolio. 

Here are several ways to build a teaching portfolio (and get paid for it):

  • Use a freelance platform (e.g.: UpWork ) to pick up some private tutoring gigs
  • Use social media to offer your teaching services to friends & acquaintances 

For the students reading this, you’ll enjoy our guide on how to make a student resume !

Use Action Words to Make Your Teaching Resume POP!

Look through a pile of teacher resumes, and you will see these words repeated again and again. 

Do you want your resume to look like all the rest?

Of course not! 

This is why we recommend using some of these power words instead:

  • Conceptualized
  • Spearheaded

How to List Your Education Correctly

The next section in any good teacher resume is the education section.

Now, there’s a few different paths you can follow to become a professional teacher. 

All you need to do in this section is describe your educational path to date. 

  • Degree Type & Major
  • University Name
  • Years Studied
  • GPA, Honours, Courses, and other relevant achievements 

Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education

Boston State University

2015 - 2018

Relevant Courses: Foundations of Education, Early Childhood Development, Physical Sciences, Computer Literacy, Classroom Engagement & Development

Right, let’s answer some of the most frequently asked questions:

What if I’m still studying?

  • Whether or not you’ve passed all of your teaching exams, you should always mention every year that you have studied to date.

Should I include my high school qualifications?

  • Only include your highest form of qualification. If that’s a qualification from high school , then go for it.

What comes first, education or experience?

  • If you’re an experienced teacher, your work experience should come before your education.

If you still have questions, you can check out our guide on how to list education on a resume .

Awards & Certifications

Awards & Certificates Examples

  • Learning How to Learn – Coursera Certificate

Order the languages by proficiency:

  • Intermediate

Now, you may be wondering, “why is my weekly book club worth mentioning when applying for teaching jobs?”

Well, because it says more about who you as a person.

It shows that you have a life outside of teaching. 

You’re someone who the other teachers could relate to.

If you want some ideas of hobbies & interests to put on your resume, we have a guide for that!

Match Your Cover Letter with Your Resume

Oh no, more writing!?

We feel your pain, but it’s for great reason.

Cover letters still play a vital role in the application process.

This guide has taught you how to build the best teacher resume possible, but even that may not be enough to secure your dream position.

By not writing a cover letter, you are simply missing out on an opportunity to communicate with more depth and personality. 

Even better, the recruiter will know that you want this position at this school .

Just like with the resume, the cover letter needs to be structured correctly. Here’s how to do that:

cover letter structure teacher

And here’s what goes in each section:

Contact Details

Your personal contact information, including full name, profession, email, phone number, and location

Hiring Manager’s Contact Information

Full name, position, location, email

Opening Paragraph

It’s important to hook the recruiter with a powerful introduction. With this in mind, mention:

  • The specific teaching position you’re applying for
  • Your experience summary and top achievements

With the recruiter wanting to know more, you can go through the rest of your work history and personal background. You may want to delve into:

  • Why you want to work at this specific school
  • Anything you know about the school’s culture
  • What are your top skills and how are they relevant for the job
  • If you’ve worked in similar industries or positions before

Closing Paragraph

This is where you:

  • Wrap up any points you missed in the body paragraph
  • Thank the recruiter for their time
  • End with a call to action. Something like, “I’d love to further discuss how my experience as an X can help the school with Y”

Formal Salutations

To keep everything professional, use formal closing, such as “Best regards” or “Sincerely.”

Creating a cover letter is a craft. But don’t worry, you can call on our how to write a cover letter for guidance.

5 Resume Examples for Teachers

How to format a teacher resume, must-have sections to include on a teacher resume, top skills & keywords for teacher resumes, tips for writing a teacher resume, teacher resume faqs.

Consider the following hypothetical scenario: You’re an outstanding teacher who is planning an upcoming move, or perhaps exploring new teaching opportunities in your current locale. You’ve got a solid background of experience, credentials and skills, plus many intangibles (unique talents, leadership acumen and passion, to name just a few).

So how do you communicate all of this to potential employers? And how can you showcase these qualities in a sharp, well-organized, visually appealing way that conveys your story and opens doors to new opportunities in the classroom and beyond?

Welcome to our mini Educator Resume Building Guide. Class is now in session.

Helpful for new and seasoned educators alike, this teacher resume guide will cover key insights regarding how to format and fine-tune your resume. We’ll share several strong teacher resume examples that you can use for inspiration — plus, a downloadable template you can use to build your own stellar resume!

If you’ve been off the job market for a while, or you’re new to the profession, it helps to pick up tips and new suggestions from example resumes featuring styles and formatting that have proven successful. Here are five top-notch sample teacher resumes from which to draw inspiration:


“Format” refers to two different ways of delivering your professional experience: page layout and file type. Aside from aesthetics or processing purposes, resume format is important because it prevents your resume from slipping through the digital cracks. 

Many employers today use applicant tracking systems (ATS) to help them process resumes quickly, so they don’t have to sift through dozens of resumes one by one. According to Inc. , “These systems automatically weed out most of the candidates who aren’t a close match for the role … It’s safe to say if you aren’t getting called for job interviews, ATS has something to do with it.” It’s important to understand resume readability and formatting so you end up in the 3 percent of online applicants who get contacted by a recruiter for any given job.  

The most easy-to-process resumes — for both ATS and human eyes — follow one of these formats: 

Reverse-chronological : This format highlights your career progression in an easy-to-scan timeline, making it ideal for recruiters and ATS. However, this format exposes time gaps and can be repetitive if you’ve held the same position at multiple schools.

Functional : This format focuses on your skills, which is ideal if you have limited teaching experience or gaps in your career. However, it’s been known to confuse potential employers and ATS.

Combination/hybrid : With an in-depth skills section and a small experience section, this format summarizes why you’re the best candidate for the job. However, it’s easy to structure this poorly, and it can look like you’re hiding a lack of work experience.

You’ll notice that each of the formats above contains a flaw. The truth is, words on a page cannot always accurately convey your entire professional experience. Only you can speak to that — and that’s what (hopefully) your interview is for. 

That said, we recommend the reverse-chronological format for your educator resume because it proves you have practical knowledge and a steady career. This format should convey the story of your teaching experience in under six seconds , which is how long recruiters will take to scan your resume before knowing whether you’re the right fit.

Speaking of scanning, here are the most important elements you need to consider when creating your educator resume: 

  • Layout: A reverse-chronological conveys information with the most efficiency.
  • Sections: Make sure each section of your resume is distinct and has white space around it to breathe.
  • Font: Sans serif fonts like Verdana and Helvetica are recommended for body copy, as they are easy to scan. If you must choose a serif typeface, save it for the header (your name). Stay away from decorative fonts — flourishes, bubble letters and other ornamentation are simply distracting. 
  • Font size: Body text should be 11–12pts. Go 2–4pts. larger for section headings, and 6–10 pts. larger than that for your name. Again, you want the most important info to be easily scannable — name, job titles, dates. 
  • Subheadings: Identify each subsection with easy-to-read and straightforward titles: “Professional Experience,” “Education,” “Skills & Specializations,” and so on. You don’t want to confuse the ATS or resume screeners with witty headlines. 
  • Margins: Keep a 1-inch margin as a border to your resume. This leaves enough room for notes, plus it’s visually appealing. 
  • Line spacing: Single line spacing is recommended in resume body text; double spaces make it look like you’re trying to fill space.
  • File type: Save and send or upload resumes as PDFs, unless the teaching job post or employer asks for Word docs. This prevents all but the savviest of users (or those with Adobe subscriptions) from editing your resume for any reason. 

Now that we’ve covered the visuals, let’s dive into the important content — your experience and skills. 

These are the must-have sections to include on your teaching resume:

  • Header: This should be its own section, distinct from the rest of the resume content. Your name is the “title,” followed by contact information like your email address, phone number, address and website or other professional links (if applicable).
  • Introduction: This is a brief introductory statement that summarizes who you are as an educator, what your objectives are and what you might bring to this role. Keep it to 1–3 sentences or 3 lines total; you can always expand upon your experience and enthusiasm in your cover letter . Here’s an example: 

“Elementary school teacher with over 5 years of classroom experience instructing at the 4th–6th grade levels, focusing on Life Sciences and prioritizing a whole-child approach. Increased 5th grade MCAS Science scores by 15% from 2017–2019. Seeking to bring enthusiasm and expertise in STEM engagements to the open 5th grade Science teacher role at Horace Mann Elementary School.” 

  • Work history: This is a detailed account of your teaching experience, preferably presented in reverse-chronological order. Include the names of your previous schools, range of tenure in years, grade levels taught, subject matter focus and any additional roles you held at the school. You may include brief descriptions of your accomplishments — not simply your responsibilities — in each role. 
  • Education: List your undergraduate and postgraduate schools and degrees, plus any noteworthy academic achievements at the postsecondary level. Do not include high school information if you are past the undergraduate level.
  • Skills: This is a concise, objective list of teaching skills and abilities. Include both hard skills and soft skills, and make sure you demonstrate the application of these skills in your work history descriptions. (More on skills below.)
  • Extra sections: You may want to leave room for awards, additional languages, community involvement, etc., if applicable and relevant to the position you are applying for. See below for more guidance here. 

Additional Teacher Resume Sections to Consider

Of course, your teaching experience and skills are the primary qualifiers for any teaching position. However, don’t discount the importance of listing additional skills and awards, as long as they are relevant to the position. You never know — your intermediate German or recreational sports coaching may make you a candidate for additional open positions at a school, even if you don’t land the job you’re applying for. 

  • Certifications: For teachers, this section isn’t exactly optional. Potential employers want to know that you hold the appropriate licenses and certifications to teach children in their state. List any state teacher’s licenses first, followed by any supplementary private teaching certificates you may hold.
  • Teaching association memberships: Are you affiliated with any teaching organizations or academic associations ? This demonstrates a dedication to the profession and may help you build connections with potential employers or coworkers. 
  • Volunteer positions: Are you on any volunteer committees in your town? Do you offer free tutoring or mentor services? Do you regularly serve meals or stock shelves at the local food pantry? List anything you think might help round out your full professional picture. 
  • Language proficiency: Four years of French in high school doesn’t count; do mention if you possess proficiency or fluency in a language besides the school’s primary language. 
  • Hobbies & interests: This is typically covered in an interview, or perhaps even after you’ve been hired. However, list any hobbies that may be relevant to the position you are applying for. For example, if you are applying for an English teacher position, you can mention that you run a book club that focuses on 19th-century British literature.

No matter the job, every potential employer likes to see a balance of “hard” and “soft” skills on a resume — hard skills being practical, job related abilities, and soft skills being your personal attributes that enable you to manage your work and relationships effectively. 

In-demand hard skills for teachers include, but are not limited to: 

  • Subject area expertise
  • Age group/grade level expertise 
  • Curriculum development
  • Lesson planning
  • Performance evaluations
  • Specific teaching methods
  • Computer skills 
  • Educational technology
  • Online/virtual/hybrid teaching
  • STEM/STEAM instruction speciality
  • Differentiated instruction
  • Digital literacy
  • Adaptive teaching methods , such as project-based learning and scaffolding 

Firsthand experience with the following classroom tools is also helpful:

  • Google Classroom and Google Meet
  • Microsoft Teams for Education  

While soft skills are sometimes harder to define, important soft skills for teachers include: 

  • Conflict resolution and diplomacy
  • Critical thinking
  • Project management
  • Leadership 
  • Creative problem solving 
  • Objectivity 
  • Empathy and compassion 
  • Ability to stay calm under pressure 

If you’re new to teaching and haven’t held many previous teaching positions, be honest! Everyone has to start somewhere, and embellishing your resume to make yourself seem more experienced will hold as much water as a pencil pouch. If you feel your lack of experience is holding you back from the right jobs, be sure to identify and include professional and academic references on your resume who can speak to your skill set (with their permission, of course). 

There is no shortage of “top tips” out there for writing resumes. When it comes to teacher resumes, however, there are some things to keep in mind as you try to get in front of the right educators or administrators. 

Make it instantly memorable.

As explained by Inc. , your resume must be scannable in six seconds or less in order to capture a recruiter’s attention. Don’t spend hours crafting the perfect description of your previous jobs while forgetting to label them clearly. In order of importance, prioritize your resume header, section headings and font readability. Section headings especially are not the place to get “cute” — leave the clever quips for your second interview. 

White space makes it easier to read.  

Leaving lots of white space might sound boring, or like there’s not enough content to fill a page. However, white space makes text easier to read and scan. Maintain a 12- or 11-pt. font for body text, and don’t be afraid to stretch your resume to two pages if need be. 

Tailor your resume to each job. 

This is a standard rule for every type of profession, especially those in which people talk. Educators are well connected within the teaching community, and you don’t want one school to discover you’ve applied to multiple teaching jobs with a copied-and-pasted resume. Your introduction below your header should be customized to each job post, and so should your list of skills. Likewise, review each of your own job descriptions to see if you can highlight aspects that may speak to the specific position you’re applying for. 

Show, don’t state. 

Simply listing your job responsibilities doesn’t tell much of a story. You can still use bullet points to explain your prior positions, but instead of saying, “Taught a 5th grade class of 25 students,” try to frame your duties through a lens of your accomplishments in that position. For example, you could say instead, “Designed Life Science lesson plans around authentic STEM engagements, resulting in an average 25% increase in 5th grade test scores by the end of the school year.” 

Support your experience with numbers . 

You may have noticed that several examples in this article feature hard data. This is the best way to convey that your classroom impact had real results. Keep track of your students’ progress, and note where it improved as a direct result of your instruction. If you no longer have access to data from a previous job, you can reach out to the school to ask if they can share those records from your tenure.  

Proofread and edit. Proofread and edit. Proofread and edit.

What do I put on my resume if I don’t have any teaching experience yet?

As we said above, everyone has to start somewhere. If you are a recent undergraduate, you can list any relevant academic accomplishments, internships, student teaching experience, extracurricular activities and volunteer work. Include academic references and letters of recommendation in your application materials, with their permission. If your bachelor’s degree is not in education, there are solutions — read our article on that topic here .

Should I send my resume in a Word doc or PDF?

The job posting or application will usually specify what file format to send your resume in. Microsoft Word docs are editable by the recipient, while PDFs provide the creator the option to prevent editing. However, some ATS software cannot process PDF content, so it’s best to send both file types or check with the job recruiter if you’re not sure.

How long should my teaching resume be?

One page is the standard recommendation for most types of resumes, but don’t be afraid to extend it to two, especially if your experience warrants the extra space. Font size should be no smaller than 11 pts., so if you can’t condense your content without crowding the page or leaving key information out, add an extra page to give your text room to breathe.

What Matters Most: Your Skill Set & Work Experience

Your resume skills and work experience

Your skills section should reflect what makes you uniquely qualified for the job at hand. When you’re working as a graduate teacher assistant, you’ll have to juggle a lot of tasks that range from student assessments to data organization—and recruiters want to see that you’re equipped to handle it all!

As a result, your skills need to be very relevant to your profession. Don’t list generic things like “communication” or “organization” when you could detail that you’re great at giving lectures and keeping student data files in order.

Be specific! If you use a program like MS Excel to keep track of grades, name it. If you have a particularly strong area of communication, clarify it.

Sample Graduate Teaching Assistant work experience bullet points

Your skills are crucial, of course! But so is how you apply them to ensure teacher and student success. Recruiters need to see how you improved student grades, optimized lesson plans, and assisted other teachers field curve balls or schedule changes.

Your past experiences should all relate to your current role as a graduate teaching assistant in some way, even if they’re from a totally different job. If you greeted museum attendants and helped answer questions, keep in mind that you’ll be doing the same thing in the classroom!

Just make sure you provide clear, quantifiable metrics of the success you’ve created with your achievements in the past. Recruiters need data that exemplifies your effectiveness, like grade improvements and student ratings!

Here are some solid examples:

  • Completed all program-related cash and credit transactions with 98% accuracy using MS Excel to ensure customer satisfaction
  • Responded helpfully and politely to students’ questions and concerns, raising grade averages by 7% and gaining a personal rating of 94%
  • Graded all weekly quizzes, providing regular feedback to students during only two hours of office time per week, improving efficiency by 13%
  • Monitored and recorded attendance and distributed teaching materials using PowerSchool SIS to reduce clerical errors in student records by 11%

Top 5 Tips for Your Graduate Teaching Assistant resume

  • If you’re a new graduate without a ton of background experience, a resume objective could fill in a valuable gap for you. Use your objective statement to lay out fresh mentorship or problem-solving abilities that qualify you for graduate teaching assistance, alongside how they’ll benefit the specific institution you’re applying to.
  • If you’ve earned the title of Certified Teacher Assistant for your state, don’t let it gather dust! Any other certifications that pertain to what you’re helping to teach should be included in your resume, too: That goes for software certifications, CPR or First Aid certs, or anything else that relates to your subject matter.
  • You’ll want to keep your resume at or less that only one page in length. You don’t have to fill the page all the way, though—just include whatever is most relevant, such as previous teaching jobs, projects, or certifications.
  • We know, there’s been a lot of talk about skills today! But anything you can bring in that helps you do your job well, like project development, Schoolmint Hero, or MS and Google suites, will boost your credibility.
  • If you choose to include an objective statement, take the opportunity to add fresh information like which subject(s) you’re most equipped to help teach. For example, if you teach English, now’s the time to mention your background in teaching exchange students!

You technically can, if you go into enough depth that it practically seems like a whole new point! But why do that when you can use entirely new teaching experiences to build a cover letter ? This approach helps if you’re struggling to keep your resume short enough, too.

Use your experience points to feature your soft skills as context for your achievements. For example, talk about the time you showed empathy and patience by adapting lesson plans for different learning needs to increase grade averages!

Just look at your personal history for internships, college projects, or even pro bono initiatives that relate to your field. Did you volunteer to help lead a tutoring program? Did you join an outreach program for struggling youths?

  • Showcase your teaching experience: Provide a chronological list of your previous teaching positions, starting with the most recent. Include the name of the school, the location, your job title, and the duration of employment. Describe your responsibilities, accomplishments, and any significant projects or initiatives you were involved in.
  • Emphasize your skills: Include a dedicated section that highlights your key skills and competencies as a teacher. This can include both technical skills (e.g., proficiency in educational software) and interpersonal skills (e.g., communication and classroom management).
  • Include relevant extracurricular activities: If you have been involved in any clubs, organizations, or volunteer work related to education, mention them to demonstrate your commitment to the field.
  • Incorporate keywords from job descriptions: Tailor your resume for each position by including keywords and phrases from the job posting. This will increase your chances of getting past applicant tracking systems and catching the attention of hiring managers.
  • Proofread and edit: Ensure that your resume is free of grammatical errors, typos, and formatting inconsistencies. Ask a trusted friend or colleague to review your resume for additional feedback.
  • Keep it concise: Limit your resume to one or two pages, focusing on the most relevant and impactful information. Use bullet points to keep your content organized and easy to read.
  • Customize your resume for each application: Tailor your resume to match the requirements and preferences of each school or institution you are applying to. Highlight experiences or skills that are specifically relevant to the position.

By following these steps, you can create a well-structured and compelling teacher resume that effectively showcases your qualifications and makes a positive impression on potential employers.

Choosing the right resume format is crucial for effectively presenting your qualifications and experiences. There are three main resume formats to consider for a teacher job: chronological, functional, and combination.

  • Chronological format: This format is the most commonly used and preferred by hiring managers. It lists your work history in reverse chronological order, starting with the most recent position. This format is suitable for candidates with a solid work history and relevant teaching experience.
  • Functional format: The functional resume format focuses on your skills and achievements rather than your work history. It is ideal for candidates who might have employment gaps or are transitioning into teaching from another field. This format allows you to highlight specific skills, such as classroom management or curriculum development, that are relevant to the teaching job.
  • Combination format: The combination resume format combines elements of both the chronological and functional formats. It highlights your skills and accomplishments while providing a chronological overview of your work history. This format allows you to showcase your relevant teaching experience and key skills in an organized manner.

When choosing the right resume format, consider your experience level, career goals, and the specific requirements of the teaching position you are applying for.

A PDF format can be an excellent choice for a teacher resume due to its compatibility across different platforms and devices. Here are the advantages and disadvantages of using a PDF format for your teacher resume:


  • Maintains formatting consistency: PDF documents preserve the formatting and layout, ensuring that your resume looks exactly as intended regardless of the recipient’s device or software.
  • Protects against edits: PDFs can be secured with passwords or restrictions, preventing unauthorized edits or changes to your resume.
  • Easy to share: PDF files can be easily shared via email or uploaded to job portals without the risk of formatting issues.


  • Limited editability: While PDFs maintain formatting consistency, they can be challenging to edit or update once saved. If you frequently need to make changes to your resume, a PDF format may not be ideal.
  • Compatibility issues: Some older or proprietary software may have difficulty opening or reading PDF files. However, most modern devices and applications support PDF formats.

Consider the advantages and disadvantages when deciding whether to use a PDF format for your teacher resume. If you prioritize formatting consistency and ease of sharing, a PDF format may be the right choice for you.

What Is a Resume?

What are the types of resumes.

  • Chronological . This type of resume is the most commonly used among the four. This resume emphasizes the previous work experience and lists them chronologically.
  • Reverse chronological . A similar type of resume but instead of listing the employment history with the most recent first, the first one on this type of resume is the applicant’s first-ever work experience.
  • Functional . This type of resume focuses more on the applicant’s skills and abilities rather than the work experience. This resume is good for first-time applicants with no previous work experience.
  • Combination . From the name itself, this type of resume combines the first two types and consists of two pages. The first page would use the chronological format while the second page would use the functional format.
  • Targeted . A more complex type of resume wherein it is more personalized to suit what the company is looking for from an applicant. This resume may be time-consuming to write and is not advisable when submitting to multiple employers, but this type of resume will usually stand out from the rest.

Cabin Sole Replacement

  • Thread starter Skippie10
  • Start date Oct 14, 2014
  • Brand-Specific Forums

Hi, I have a 1985 S2 9.2 Aft cockpit. The teak and holly cabin sole became water stained from water seeping in along the edge as condensate from the boat drained down and into the lockers adjacent to the floor. I have already sanded and bleached it once and the veneer is sanded through in areas so I'm faced with replacing the floor. I notice that it is nailed down. Has anyone accomplished the removal and replacement of such a floor? Precautions? Suggestions? I need to order new teak and holly plywood...should I go with 1/4" thick or go thicker? Thanks a bunch!

Thanks Woody, I have searched the supplier sources and find that I must order these plywood boards from out of state and have them shipped to me, in Wisconsin. I contacted Maritime Wood Products out of Stuart FL. Is this a known source or is there someone else who does this routinely?

OK, I will come back to this forum when I finalize my order. It looks like this will be a bout $250 - 275/4X8 sheet plus shipping (270). Wish there were a simpler solution. But, doesn't look like it's going to be easy/inexpensive. Don  

try teak east in Donalds SC they may be able to help you on the price and shipping ask for Eddie  

plywood try Boulter Plywood they ship world wide 1/4" $215  

OK, sounds like I joined too late to help you, but I did this job a few years ago on my S2 9.2A. I'm not wood worker par excellance, so I made some patterns out of thick poster board and, in one case, out of much cheaper plywood. This seemed to help a lot, because as you know there is no such thing as a straight line aboard a small boat. The nasty places as you may have noticed are the port side deck under the chart desk and there is a little triangular area right below the cabinets that turns out to be quite tricky. Looks like S2 used glue blobs or something to get the curvature right. If you don't have to replace this particular piece, I would advise that you do not. Also if this is all cause by seeping water, check the seats supports on both sides, the "boxes" that have the under the seat lockers.You may actually have to replace the portion of the marine plywood facing the center-line on both sides. I had to.  

Hi and thanks for weighing in on this. Actually, I'm still working on my first project - removing old and replacing with new...water heater....whew, that is a project! Getting near to pulling the trigger on replacing the floor. I found a huge difference in cost for teak and holly floor. It seems that the last recommendatation on this string - by PBO3131 - will be my choice. Boulter seems to know the market and has their system set up to ship to your door - at a fair price. I don't have teak and holly under my chart is carpet under there on mine. I think the biggest challenge will be to cut the new and not "screw up the surface" in the process. Haven't started to remove the old, so, I don't know what I'm in for! Thanks for your input! Don  


Be sure to put a new support under the mast support post while you are at it. It's a common problem the it is non existent or missing. If you have a dent in the deck or your head door hits the cabinet before the stop on the cabinet you are a lucky winner!  

Fortunately, I don't have the issue you mention. Don  

Just out of curiosity, does anyone, here, know of someone who repairs old (about 15 years old) Raymarine ST4000 Autohelm units? Mine has a digital display which only provides a couple of, the digital display needs replacing. Don

is the display case black  


Hi Skippie 10. I am in Milwaukee and interested in what is under your floor. I have a 1981 8.5 with the common affliction of the mast support post creating a dent in the cabin sole. I am planning on removing part of the cabin sole to get at the mast support of lack there of. I would appreciate any picts of what is under the floor.

Hey Jguyer, I'll be working on the floor in the next month....need to order the teak and holly plywood from the company recommended on this string and it will probably take 10 days to get here. Don

Skippie10 said: Yes, the case is black with orange buttons (square). I tried ebay but could not find a replacement. The LED's are partially burned out so it is unintelligible. Wish I could find a replacement! Or, a place I could send for repair. Don Click to expand

Wow, really appreciate the photos. Now, I have an S2 9.2 A but the set up is probably the same. Do the photos point forward and aft? How does water get past the vertical barriers/substructure? Don

    A New Cabin Sole. The first time I stepped down a sailboat s companionway I was overwhelmed by the beauty and abundance of the wood I found below.

I have decided to document my project in three parts.

  5. Ask Sail: The Right Cabin Sole Finish

    DON CASEY REPLIES. Polyurethane is the better choice for a cabin sole. Oil-based varnishes are too soft. Keep in mind that any gloss finish on the sole can compromise footing, particularly if the sole becomes wet. That said, the beauty of a varnished sole has for me trumped traction reduction for four decades without consequence.

  6. A Practical Approach to Cabin Sole Finish

    Then, mask off the areas to be made nonskid, and lay on a heavy coat of the same finish. Heavily sprinkle it with coarse salt; we use a grinder held 2 to 3 feet above the surface. Start with a light coat, moving back and forth until a uniform coating is obtained. Once the coating dries, rinse away the salt crystals with fresh water.

  9. cabin sole replacement

    Yes, the ends should be epoxied, if not capped, in either case. If one's cabin sole and bilges remain dry, a good quality plywood could be sufficient. If one wanted to insure piece of mind, marine grade is made for a purpose. I've seen floors that were made from stained household plywood that looked pretty nice at first.

  10. Replacing a Small Boat Cabin Sole

    My personal boat, Funktional, is a 1986 Formula 242 LS that had a cabin sole that became waterlogged and lost its stiffness.A limber hole that became plugged over 25 years ago finally resulted in an uneasy feeling when standing inside the cabin. When I purchased the boat 10 years ago the sponginess was barely noticeable, but after several more seasons the flexing became obvious.

  11. What Is the Best Material for a Cabin Sole Replacement?

    Overall, hardwood is generally the best option for a cabin sole replacement, and it will mean you won't have to face another replacement for a very long time. Talk to your boat floor installer about how a hardwood floor will respond to humidity. There are ways to install hardwood that allow for a little bit of expansion and contraction.

  12. Finishing the Cabin Sole

    Adding salt to a varnish finish is a little different. First, build up a good protective base, and allow it to cure completely. Then, mask off the areas to be made nonskid, and lay on a heavy coat of the same finish. Heavily sprinkle it with coarse salt; we use a grinder held 2 to 3 feet above the surface.
