    Well got all the sub floor down...screw down....2 coats of the resin and fiber glass.

    No way I could do a good hardwood floor on my boat with the previous floor was like a roller coaster....how is straight like an arrow.

    The edges still need a L shape fiber glass and resin to prevent any water to seep in the subfloor.

    I have been very busy with my grandmother very sick in the hospital, my wife hurt her back moving furniture even that I asked her to not do that but she is very stub urn...and the weather is being a disaster.....so I cant keep going on my cabinets minimum 15 celsius for the glue to work properly I try to work colder than that and I got a ugly bubble in the middle of the formica....

    But not just bad news tonight I had time 2 hours for me and my little project. Enough time to get my new plywood, screws, fiberglass, etc to keep going....

    So I clean the tank, sand the surface, got it fixed at least I hope it is.

    Nice new coat of resin and fiber in the old subfloor.to use as a base for my new subfloor.

    So here a few pictures or my progress

    Well today the day was very cold so I decided to atack the floor

    I had to replace a piece of the sub floor because was rotten.....

    And I had an accident.....the lock of my circular saw broke and my blade went down in to the water tank bellow..... I really got angry about it...... and the circular saw took a "flight" and a ugly landing.....them to LOWES I go to get a new saw and one of those "vibrating cutting tools" what a beautifull tool to do tight spaces.....

    used the new tools to finish the cut but my mood was over to play in the boat.....

    Even though my boat is with a dehumidifier for the last 2 weeks steady under the subfloor was still wet....

    Looks like a great project! Keep us posted and keep taking those pictures. I found that taking lots of photos was great for reference, and also motivation by seeing just how far you have come.

    Are you trying to remove the old laminate with a grinder? I can't really tell from your pics. If that's that your doing, try a heat gun and a putty knife. Pops right off when the glue gets hot.
    O tried with heating gun putty knife and chisel, torch putty knife and chizel.

    The best resoults I got so far was grind 90% off, with out break trouth to the wood n them belt sander.

    Way faster too.

    If u notice on the triangule pieces had some gray patches was when I pulling the Formica off n some piece of the wood came with it so I stop with the heat plus tools
