Exactly. I love my floating floor; all of the sand and small bits drop through, keeping much out of the cabin. Several times a year I lift the deck and flush out the mess. Beats walking on grit, which I hate.

Certainly you could get fancier than this, but it illustrates how simple it can be.

The marvel is that it has stayed looking fresh, 2 years later. The plastic floor was never clean for more than 10 minutes, or so it seemed.
