We got tired of looking at the old crushed carpet in the cabin of our 2859. So we decided to install a new vinyl floor from the Home Depot. It came in planks 6” wide by 36” long. The project also enlarged the hatch for better access to the pumps and for access to new storage space. I was able to take a two day job and squeeze it into five days. :arr

That looks excellent, very nice. I really like the huge door, you can easily work on anything down in the bilge. Very nice job!

Really nie job. I specially like the brightness of your floor. It's very clear.

When I see yours, I really think that mine is to dark. We noticed that with my wife a few days after we put our new floor.

Nice work quality.

Love it. I'm gonna copy it due to the fact I also can't stand the carpet crushed and discolored. Was it the trafficmaster allure, oak? Also how many boxes did it take?

Thanks,

Yes, it is the Trafficmaster Allure plank style vinyl flooring from Home Depot. We chose the darker of the two shades of Bamboo, but there are many colors and textures to choose from. I did trim out the step and hatch cover in oak and sealed it with a clear polyurethane. It took about one and a half boxes, less than $100.00 for the flooring material.

No table saw required to install the floor, just a sharp utility knife, a tape measure, and a straight edge to guide the knife blade. I did use some double sided carpet tape to hold the flooring on the hatch cover.

We think it a big improvement over the old ragged carpet. A project well worth the time and money.

Very nice upgrade!!!!

I have three questions:

What did you do where the carpet goes inside the cupboards?

Is your dinette floor fully carpeted, ours has a snap in carpet that is getting ratty.

Is that a vent in the end of the v-birth for AC, if so where is the sea-water cooling through hull and pump installed.

Mine has a second fresh water tank under the v-birth that I am thinking of removing.

Cheers

Thanks, we think so too.

1. I was able to cut the carpet along the bottom of the cupboards and install the vinyl right to the edge of the cupboards. Didn't even need to trim it out, the fit was that snug.

2. Yes our dinette is fully carpeted, but is in good shape so I left it alone. Others have removed it and installed the flooring there as well.

3. Yes, that is a vent that was used for the AC/heater heat pump. The duct ran from there under the dinette step that is no longer on the boat. Then came out under the fridge and into the mid cabin as well. The PO had it installed, then decided it didn't work as the duct was too small to carry enough air. He disconnected the duct and ran it out the white vent you see above the uncovered hole you referred to. I need to get a grate to cove the hole.

3a. The sea water pump and through hull fitting are under the aft most section of the hatch. With the big hatch they are easy to get to now.
