I decided to tear up the carpet and install a real wood floor. I found a real teak (1 mm veneer) laminated to a 3/8" ply. Glued and tacked it down. I didn't want to go with the fake roll-up style teak holly.
What do you think?

NICE!!!

How much a sq/ft is that stuff?

I'd be interested in that, (as long as I did as good of a job as you!:) )

I purchased from a local flooring store. The box covers about 18sf and cost was about $100 per box. All I needed was one box.

I made a template of the entire floor from poster board to the exact size. There is actually about 1/8 "breathing" room on each side but the floor just touches the carpet so the edge can't be seen. No need for corner molding.

Because the subfloor (is glassed into the boat) it has some irregularities, so I smoothed it out the best I could. There were two spots where the floor would bellow in. In those areas just after I glued the board, I used some small 1" brads and drove them in at a 45 degree on the groove side of the floor and used a punch to drive them home. This secured the floor down until the glue sets.

WOW!! Totally very very nice. I'd love to do that, but I think I have some curves in spots on the floor. I take it you're floor is completely level?

I agree with Doug and the others that...

Todd,
No my floor is not completely level. I got it the best I could by sanding down some of the high spots. Then when I installed the floor if I noticed a low spot then I tacked it down. The variation is just fractions of an inch and since the boards are approx 3/8" thick they do flex. Once installed your eye will never see it. On the other hand if you were looking at a large area i.e. living room, then you would notice a slight dip.

Curious, and just typing out loud......normally a self-leveling/thinset mortar would be used in a household application.....what would be recommended for a boat? Flexible, yet sturdy.......thoughts? (next boat might/probably will need this modification)

Ted,
I don't think using thin set (I am familiar with it) would be necessary. My concern is given the normal flexing all parts of a boat undergo would that thin set start separating from the sub floor?
If your floor is that uneven then I would use a straight edge and belt or disk sand the high spots. Are they really that bad??? Your goal is to get the floor down tight so you don’t notice soft spots when you walk on it. If you tack and glue down the new floor you will never see a 1/16” low or high spot, IMO.
