DriDek:



At the dock I keep it covered with a relatively cheap Nepalese (or is it Indian?) woven cotton carpet that just happens to be almost exactly the right size.

Oh man, you said snits and had a photo of the head...I was confused a bit about the PO's habits for a moment.

Re: What do you have on your cabin sole?

I just put down some Plasteak fake teak and holly. Like it so far, but I'm accessorizing in the mold of Smackdaddy.

I like IPAs. I've found some in cans - Sea Hag out of Boston, Pork Slop, also from Boston, I think.

I'm open to suggestions to improve my sole (soul?).

Re: What do you have on your cabin sole?

there are some waterproof laminaites out there, but I don't see how a "floating" floor would really work on a boat. Seems it would just come up and move around. I just put down 1,500 square feet of it (from Lumber liquidators, and not waterproof) and it was not that easy, and I don't think in a house with molding holding it down it will last the 30 years it's warranty says it will.

There are some nice glue down products, some made from Bamboo that look nice. I looked at one boat that had it and it looked really nice. I also saw a boat with oak; I thought it looked nice but kind of out of place on a boat.

No way for me to have carpet, too much moisture gets trapped. Looking at an S2 and first thing I would have to do is tear out the carpet headliner. The foam interlocking tiles might be cool, but I wonder if they absorb moisture where you cut them? There is also cork, it can look nice but is hard to keep clean.

Re: What do you have on your cabin sole?

I went to Boulter Plywood and bought a ˝ sheet of 3/4" Teak & Holly Plywood for the bilge covers, and a full sheet of ˝" for the rest of the soule. The O'day 35 uses the FRP floor pan of an O'day 34, except that it is normally covered with ˝" teak & holly ply. The 3/4" substrate is great in that the bilge covers do not flex at all.




After cutting the plywood to fit, I coated the back and sides of each piece with 2 coats of epoxy. Then I added a strip of aluminum L bracket from Home Depot to the edges, to prevent them from being damaged from butting / chafing against each other.

I finished it with 4 coats of Minwax Satin Poly (the admiral does not like the gloss look).

Re: What do you have on your cabin sole?

Before we bought current Womboat I'd have been in total agreement with Killarney and for offshore use I still am. Otoh, when we bought her she had carpet laid over the original teak and holly. We left it there for winter, pulled it up when we went racing or coastal cruising and for summer but I confess that after it went back down for the following winter it has stayed down. That said our girl is pretty dry below decks. It would take a pretty major indundation for the carpet to even get damp and thus far no problems with mould etc and excellent non skid.
