Woodgrain vinyl for cabine sole?

My 1970 Ranger 33 has a simulated woodgrain vinyl covering the sole. It is now really ratty. I don't immediately find anything like it (it is fairly thin and fabric-backed).

If I can't find that, I'm going to look for a simple grey or tan vinyl product that I could use. I wonder if there is anything like that which would have some non-skid properties? Any pointers appreciated.

Do you mean sole, as in the floor? Or as in headliner?....

LOL...

Why would you want something like a vinyl covered wood grain fabric for a cabin sole. UGH... if it gets wet, it will take forever to dry, can hold and harbor mold, mildew, etc... why not replace it with a plywood or holly & teak veener sole.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Cam-

That would go over whatever material you have as your cabin sole... and it is good stuff...but not too pretty to look at. However, the OP is talking about having a cabin sole made of fabric-backed wood-grain patterned vinyl. UGH.

Sorry guys, but when I hear vinyl and sole in the same sentence, my background in construction makes me immediately think of Armstrong floor covering for a kithchen. Circa 1974. Or worse. Ugh........

The Dri-Dek samples below I use in my lockers and chemical storage drawers, as well as the tool boxes both onboard the boat and in the truck. Very tough stuff, though I think I'd refrain from putting that in my salon...........

Vinyl...DriDeck

Thanks the many replies.

I use DriDeck under the foam mattress in my V-Berth (to create an airspace since water tank is just below and can have a condensation problem.)

The cabin sole is a familiar curved - very curvey - fiberglass pan and it has a molded indentation in which this sheet of vinyl sits.

In defense of this vinyl, I'll say that it has been there since 1970 and has held up until recently -- me spilling various things on it probably didn't help. If I found the same material today I would hurry to reapply it, as it would likely survive until I am dead and buried. It is walnutty in appearance with fake joints. It wasn't too slippy and it didn't get moldy -- just frayed.

Now I might have to resort to redoing the sole with some sort of real wood, but I have one very specific concern. I may liveaboard again in near future (I did so the first 4 year I owned) and I can say that I am 6'1" and there is precisely 6'1" headroom down the centerline of the R33. If I, with great difficulty and greater expense, lay down a one-quarter-inch layer of wood, the balance of the universe could be upset. The earth could spin off its axis and you would all be killed.

So, rather than have all of you go spin into the sun and die a horrible death, I'm looking at more vinyl - or something not more than 1/8" thick!

If memory serves me well, you should start to shrink, height-wise, after you turn 60. Just wait it out and then go with wood..........
