I have dri-dek to provide airflow, topped by puzzle mats from the dollar store to provide cushioning and insulation, topped off with carpet remnant.

Yeah, I'm not a fan of carpet on a boat, either. The big however is, while I love the look of a teak floor, I like the warmth that carpet provides during the winter months. So, the carpet won out over installing a teak floor.

Re: What do you have on your cabin sole?

last I heard.. pergo is made of pressed wood. I doubt it would survive a single season on the cabin sole.

Re: What do you have on your cabin sole?

We bought our boat with the intentions of doing some local racing but we wanted the boat to be comfortable for multiweek cruising, too. The floor of our Beneteau 35s5 was beautiful wood and the previous owners just had some throw rugs. I wanted something that would have some traction, be removable to clean easily, and fairly low cost. I found some very thick, rubber outdoor mats, that, when lined up horizontally, fit perfectly. Plus, in our climate here, it protects the floor from wet feet, and when you're blowing around, you can stand your ground. And, best of all, it was less than a boater's buck!

Re: What do you have on your cabin sole?

We use a simple indoor outdoor carpet with a rubber back. Just have it for the cabin sole pathway(not wall to wall thank you) and the galley as it gives great traction and also protects the sole from dings, water, etc.
Usually last two years before the backing starts to flake and make a mess.
$20 and I have a new one using the old for a pattern.

Re: What do you have on your cabin sole?

I found this at our local Home Depot:

Its actually a vinyl plank and one box did the entire sole of our little 26'. Once it is in place you can lift it up to clean under it if needed. We have been very happy with the change from the PO's shag carpet.

Re: What do you have on your cabin sole?

We have a teak and holly sole in the main part of the cabin. Very nice to walk on, easy to keep clean, makes access to the bilge easy.

Other parts (like the aft cabin) have fiberglass with non-skid. Works well enough, but it's a bit slippery sometimes.

I'm no longer participating on SailNet.

Re: What do you have on your cabin sole?

Putting wet room laminate onto my cabin sole has long been on my wish list. For now I'm happy with a set blue striped bathroom mats. Keeps the cabin clean from little dirty footprints.
