Re: What do you have on your cabin sole?

TD's marine plywood sole is painted with flattened white two part epoxy paint. We use rubber backed throw runners on that. Easy to roll up for bilge access and cleaning. Inexpensive and easily replaced. Comfortable and secure under foot.

There are occasions when a few EMPTY beer cans may have been rolling around.

I spent some time on a boat with unfinished elm soles. Great wood for that application.
