Waited all the way till the end of October to buy myself next summers fun. I wound up with a 2855, what a terrific layout. I just had to jump in and put my own personal touch somewhere and here is the result. The carpeted steps seemed to be needing a little more class. I had some Cherry boards from a tree I cut down about two years ago and put them to good use. Had the oppurtunity to get out to the Marina and install them this weekend.

Very nice personal touch. I cant stand looking at new boats and there is nothing on them to give them a personality. Well done.

It looks very classy. My only concern would be wet feet. Is it going to be slippery?

Thanks all for the compliments.

Doug, my next project.....I haven't liked the carpet from day 1. I've been shopping but haven't found the right replacement yet. I have had a number of samples sent to me but all seem so thin, even the so called heavy weight marine. I attended the Cleveland Boat Show but no vendors out there. So we'll see. A cabinet configuration is needed in the aft cabin for clothing so I can make that.
I've also done a number of other changes that didn't warrant photo's. I changed the shelf configuration in one of the cabinets to provide a behind the door microwave oven location. The sliding doors on the galley cabinets and head cabinets were an ugly green transparant so I cut new smoked acrylic ones. There was a closet that I put shelves in ( storage being prime and not needing a closet ) and removed the bookrack using that area to install a LCD TV.

As far as the steps being slippery when wet, probably, but although it's titled as a boat my purpose is a camper in the Marina for the summer at Cedar Point. Not planning on bringing dripping water onboard. When we feel like getting wet we hop on the jet ski. Also the compass rose is routed out so there is some texture there. I do feel I need to add a railing to grab though.....just in case.

Looks great! If I had steps turn out that nice, I wouldn't let people step on them. That's art work.

I replaced the carpet in my 1996 2452 with wood flooring (glued down) and this current 2452 with a linoleum product that looks like wood but was very fast and easy to lay (floats but is tight at the edges). I prefer the sim wood (linoleum) due to being waterproof and easy to maintain. Check out my photos under my sig and go about 3/4 of the way down to see the project. Took Maybe an hour... The 1996 project took most of the day due to scoreing and fitting the back to have the flooring bend to the subfloor in the cabin...

I like the idea of changing out your plexi... makes it really YOUR boat... we'll want more pictures!!!

Doug,

I've been watching your work since I joined the forum. I did like the floor project you posted. I haven't decided yet if I want the engineered floor or stay with the carpet but either way I'll still need to do carpet work. The carpet in my boat just isn't what I like so even doing an engineered floor I would still need to replace that which runs up to the bench seating and raised floor area by the seating and aft cabin along with the backing where the steps are.

Well it won't be soon as I thought though. Went out this weekend and spent the boat funding all on just bedding. Geez, by time you purchase sheets, spread, pillows and blankets for the v-berth and aft cabin I could have had the carpet installed professionally.
