Re: What do you have on your cabin sole?

Before we bought current Womboat I'd have been in total agreement with Killarney and for offshore use I still am. Otoh, when we bought her she had carpet laid over the original teak and holly. We left it there for winter, pulled it up when we went racing or coastal cruising and for summer but I confess that after it went back down for the following winter it has stayed down. That said our girl is pretty dry below decks. It would take a pretty major indundation for the carpet to even get damp and thus far no problems with mould etc and excellent non skid.
