Pergo laminate

i was thinking of using pergo for flooring and was wondering if anyone has used this. It actually looks pretty good, seems to be light and have good moisture res. props.

Obviously its not teak plank, and will probably make some people hurl. hey, where did the hurl smilie go?!?! but it seems to be an adequate substitue that would be fairly easily installed over existing flooring/bilge access panels.

im even considering using it to cover over the aged laminate galley counter...

comments, as always, appreciated.

I have pergo in my kitchen, every time water lays on a seam it starts to delaminate in that area. Pergo has no place where water could be present.

Pergo will resist water from the top very well, but soaks it like a sponge from underneath. I doubt it would be a good idea for marine use.

I installed 1000sf of it in a basement with no water, just slightly damp. I even used plastic underlayment as instructed. It all buckled.

edit: bucking is not the right word for it. Each seem pinched up, the entire floor did not have expansion pressure. Suffice it to say, it looked awful.

I agree with anemoneii, I've replaced 100's if not 1000's of sq ft of this type of flooring that was used in Bathrooms, service rooms and Kitchens, not really moisture friendly

Bamboo flooring is very heavy; so compressed it actually doesn't float. However the weight's in a pretty good place!

A friend redid the sole on his Ericson 33 and it's standing up well and looks great. As a solid wood product it's going to be a lot better than the 'pergo' laminated style floor as mentioned above. On the pricey side, relatively speaking.
