Re: What do you have on your cabin sole?

My Catalina 309 had a tough, vinyl floor over fiberglass. Put down a rug to warm it up a little. How ya gonna beat that?

Now, I'm sailing a Catalina 28 with a fiberglass floor with a grippy texture. On top of that is a custom cut, edged, and loose fitting carpet. The boat came from Catalina with fitted carpet in gray, and the PO thought it looked dingy and replaced it with blue. To make it a little more interesting, I put a small, patterned rug down in the middle of the cabin.

My boat's in Michigan, though, not the tropics.

Back in the day of wooden powerboats, you could buy a forty foot Chris Craft for a thousand a foot. Or, you could buy a Huckins for at least twice that. The Huckins had curtains for doors (to keep the weight down), and the floors were linoleum. Moral of story, when it came to the trade-off between glitz vs. function, they had the guts to choose function.

I went down to Home Depot and bought a runner carpet with rubber backing. It was cheep, and it doesn't move because of the rubber. It looks nice - and protects the teak/holly sole. When it gets old, or won't clean easily, I just buy a new one.

Our Tartan 34 has cork flooring which the PO painted with an extremely ugly grey paint. We are replacing it with this:

Oceano Parquet Cork Floor Tile | AmCork

The cork is soft underfoot and easy to clean.

You need to look into what's causing the delamination first. If there are leaks, then you need to fix the leaks before you put anything else in there. Otherwise, the carpet will just get soaked and turn into a mildew factory.

Re: What do you have on your cabin sole?

I just bought a Hunter 30 (1980 model) The teak & holly plywood is delaminating.

Can I just pull it up and put down indoor/outdoor carpet?
Are there any other products that would work?

Also at the boat show, these fellers:

Welcome to BOGANTEC

$30/sqft. Stuff was very lightweight (a big consideration for me) and they seemed to be accommodating/hungry for biz

Jingo
The proper link is www.teakliteflooring.com
They charge $30 per foot. $35 if one wants it permanently glued to sole.
My main concern is that if you don't make it permanent, where they cut out bilge access, you have to lift the whole thing to access bilge.

Re: What do you have on your cabin sole?

Armand, your link didn't work. I have the same issues with my floor, that's why I was looking for an alternative. I'm still thinking that the teak and holly carpet would be interesting if the price is good. It would be nice to be able to rip it out and replace it easily.

I have 3/4 inch teak and holly sole. The teak bands are 1 1/2 inch wide and the holly is 1/4 inch wide. It is a veneer on the 3/4 inch marine ply I think
