I used a Home Depot simulated wood product (Actually a linoleum that simulates wood)... Total cost was less than $50. And I have half a case of the flooring left over...

Good job...just gave me an idea to replace the throw rug my wife keeps griping about (as do I).

Take care,

Bob

for the next project... I think it will be a heater duct to the pax side of the cockpit... Looking for flexible 3" ducting to run to the front of the pax seat... Found something used in RV's at Sportsman's Warehouse, just need a black rotating and closeable diverter in case it gets too hot for the Admiral...

then I need to increase the wire gauge on the inverter... it is way to small...


then after Christmas, plan to install an ice maker...

It looks great!! I saw that stuff at Home Depot but never thought to use it on a boat.

I would talk my husband into doing it, too, but our woodwork is nasty whitewashed stuff. I just don't think it would look nearly as nice.

Doug, that looks real good, we may do something like that one of these days. Did your new boat come with that door under the V breth, or did you do that like the old boat ?

That door is the frig... they moved it on the newer 2452's. Of course its smaller than the one on your 2452... But the Admiral likes the extra room for kitchen stuff... (read that as extra weight)... :arr

How slippery does that laminate get when it gets wet? And do you think that getting a fair amount of water on it would cause it to warp or pull up from the subfloor?

Skydiver, the laminate is a satin finish and is not slippery at all. Less so then your standard bathroom flooring. The edges are all overlayed with one inch of bonding/glued to the attached piece. If you look at the photo below you can see the overlap. No way for water or anything to get under it. Since it is all linoleum, there should be zero warpage... the subflooring underneath is fiberglassed plywood... The flooring is not attached to the subfloor. It actually floats with the exception of the left corner under the frig. That has a severe angle upward and I used spray adhesive to glue it down. The floor is so tight against the edges that there is no movement but you can feel some very slight give when stepping on it. One of my bathroom floors at home is also a "floating floor" and has the same "give".. Actually feels less hard when you walk barefoot on it...

Nice job - Doug did you remove the carpet first or lay the plywood on top of it?

Carl,

What I did was spray some fabric glue on the deck and the underside of the simulated wood and stood on it for a couple of minutes. Here is the whole process: http://www.curtisnjrotc.com/htdocs1/boatflr.htm

Ralph, it was very easy once you cut the carpet where the floor meets the verticle on the sink,under the frig and step side. The dinette side was just tucked under the verticle...

I used pliers to pull starting at the frig corner and took maybe 20 seconds to rip it out by pulling. Easier than removing scotch tape from glass if that helps...

Wood makes good for Bayliners. It increases the boat value and the look/feel.

Thanks for the info doug. I can't wait to try this on the boat. Actually a friend just bought the same stuff to use in his home kitchen. I'm going to help him in his kitchen, and that will give me a better feel of working with it before starting on the boat.
I can't wait to try this! Actually the link you provided answered some questions for me; especially the part about the angle up. Our boat has that same angle up all under the sink area. What did you use to heat the sections of laminate?

Well, my cabin heater was on (the one that keeps mildew out of the boat) and just laid the stuff on top of the heater for a minute or so. Really gets very plyable... then spraying the 3M fabric glue, wait till tacky and add pressure... done deal....

You'll be surprised how easy this stuff handles... straight edge and a sharp blade will work to cut/trim the flooring...

Unlike wood, no maintenance... and it is cheap enough to replace easily if required...

Hi Doug,
So I just got done helping my friend do his kitchen, and I have one more question for you if you would indulge me. As per instructions, you are to cut the pieces as you start the next row so as to avoid having a seam that runs straight across in one spot. The only problem with doing that is you are dealing then with some non factory cuts, and we ended up with some seams that showed. Did you bother doing this in the boat, or did you just work with full pieces until the end?
Thanks!

I used a straight edge (contractors square) and a new blade to score the surface with two runs of the blade and snapped the panel at the scoring. No seem shows.
