Hi

I had the same problem on High Time - I think it is quite common on recent boat. 

Firstly you could argue with your dealer that this is not acceptable and, if they are a good outfit, they will fix the problem.

If you want to do it yourself you could try what I did in the forepeak on High Time. I had to take up the floorboards to mop up when part of the flap valve on the log broke off, sending a 20cm jet of water everywhere for about 5 seconds before I could get the log back in. 

Take each board out into the cockpit and rub down the edges carefully with medium sandpaper all round. Then take a simple white candle and apply a liberal covering of candle wax along each edge. When the boards are re-laid silence should prevail.

The main saloon floorboards on High Time are still on the list for the dealer to fix!

Good luck

Roger

Yes.

There are a couple of jobs, plus the saloon floorboards, scheduled for early October.

A carefully applied squirt of Harken 'SailKote' dry lubricant along the squeaky board edges worked for me.  It's lasted a season so far.

Same problem in my new Hanse 345 "Pauline" ... coming from the boards facing the headroom.

I'm thinking to dismount them some day to see if I can add an extra support beneath.

Cheers,


Maurizio

Ciao Maurizio,
 
you are right, the floorboards in the main cabin between the ladder and the toilet seem to flex too  much.
I have a reinforcement project for the winter season.
