Re: What do you have on your cabin sole?

Have the original varnished teak/ply. It looks nice and nautical when it's newly varnished but gets scratched up pretty quickly. Doesn't take long for it to look crappy. Foot traffic and gloss varnish are two incompatible ideas. I think a nice, BRIGHT vinyl would be more practical. Can't imagine having carpet on a boat.
