What do you have on your cabin sole?
 
Our new-to-us Bristol has some old carpet remnants on the cabin sole, and the unrelenting humidity here has it feeling rather damp - not to mention that it's contributing to the stuffy atmosphere down below.

What do you have on the sole? Would Berber or something similar be less likely to trap the moisture? We're debating putting in Pergo (although we prefer real wood), but that would be an off-season project.

Thanks.

Cheap indoor/outdoor carpet. Easy to take outside and dry when necessary. When it gets too ratty I throw it away and get some more.

What's under the carpet? Could you just tidy that up and leave it? Not a fan of carpet on a boat.

We are on the 3rd week of owning our "new to us" Windrose 26'. I just pulled up the previous owners installed carpet and cleaned all the glue, it was disgusting. We're looking at Dri-Deck or just going with Kiwigrip.

I've been looking at this indoor outdoor carpet. Kinda fun. Funky perhaps.
Teak Carpet

It's painted marine grade plywood under the carpet, but it's pretty ratty looking. We'd need to sand it a bit and paint it.

I'm not a big fan of the carpet either, but I like how it feels in bare feet.
