    I have a 2009 with the factory installed hardwood in the salon and galley. It is not in bad shape but has some In perfections. If was in my house I would be have it refinished. I don’t think this is a solid wood but more a veneer finish. I do know enough about veneer to know you can’t sand much. Anyone have experience with this issue?
    Thanks

    I don’t have pics right now but I can give a few more details. I’m not talking deep gouging marking or dents. It’s more like stratching and dull with a few impressions here and there.

    Do you know if the hardwood flooring is “engineered”or solid hardwood? If it is engineered then it may only have a thin top layer of veneer that still may be able to be refinished. If it is solid hardwood then you would not have any issues putting the sander to it. You would be in for a mess BTW.

    I’m pretty sure Searay installed engineered wood.

    I can't imagine a solid or hardwood floor.

    Not sure on your Sea Ray, but veneer plywood (teak and holly) sole is fairly common on some brands and you can buy it in bulk 4'x8' sheets. I had a boat that had scratches from kids coming on board with sandy feet. I was able to remove the panels and refinish them at home. The veneer is fairly thin so I just used sandpaper that was aggressive enough to remove the finish. In retrospect today, I'd probably use a soy based stripper then sand with medium/fine paper.

    It is engineered flooring. Most probably mirage flooring. The veneer is at most 1/4 inch
