Cabin Sole Patterned Carpet

Has anyone ever used this cabin sole patterned carpet. I was thinking about it for my interior. I'm sure it won't appeal to everyone's aesthetic sensibilities, but I thought it was kinda nice, combining the softness/comfort of carpet with the long lines of cabin sole. See link:

IMO carpet has no place in a cabin sole (or anywhere else below) other than a small mat at the companionway steps. It will absorb moisture, hold mold, get smelly and look bad after not too long.

The carpet you linked to is not so differently priced than their other products.. I've seen the vinyl version samples (Lonseal) and would be tempted to go with that as it would be an easier install, looks much more like the 'real' thing, won't have carpet's shortcomings and will be easy to keep clean with minimal upkeep.

The PO of my old boat had custom fit carpet installed. It actually wasn't too bad can could be easily removed for cleaning. It didn't slide as it was a custom fit. It was OK but I probably wouldn't buy it for a boat. We never had a problem with smells but we live in a pretty dry climate and the boat was on a lake. The carpet did feel nice on bare feet.

I like the carpet and even though there are some related problems with it you can certainly make it removable.

When volunteering at a marine museum shop, I once had the privilege of cutting up a whole pallet of teak and holly into the sizes required for a real T $ H sole of a yacht.
It's beautiful!

I dream of making mahogany and maple for the sole of my boat but may never actually do it. I do like the alternatives however.

Carpet gets damp and holds the moisture against whatever is under it. A mat that can be washed easily over a proper wood sole is probably the best.

It is an indoor/outdoor carpet, so if it was just cut to an exact fit, it wouldn't be put down with adhesive (or other) and could be hauled out for a wash. I doubt it's that absorbent if its I/O. I probably would enjoy a real teak sole floor, but the installation + material seems a lot more involved and expensive. Plus, I'd probably end up putting a small area carpet on it anyway.

I think that Lonseal (and similar) product is pretty nice. How does it age?

Can't tell you how it ages, but I've had the samples in my hand and they're much heavier duty than your average kitchen lino. The look is quite good (but of course not the 'real thing'). I suspect the difficulty will be in being able to buy small enough quantity for your needs. Maybe get together with others who want some and make a bulk buy....

We have a custom cut carpet in the salon. It does not go to the wall, but follows the contours to within a few inches. We also have a thin non-skid pad underneath, which can be fit with a pair of scissors, so it never moves.

We do have a vacuum and run a dehumidifier when away, so it is always as nice as the carpet at home. It really makes the room comfortable as we live aboard for approx half the sailing season.

I have been in the marine industry for many years, and yes products of yester-year were not manufactured with the marine elements in mind. Marine tuft is specifically designed from polymers to resist moisture, and handle the marine elements.
