Just sitting here wondering...I had to clear out the under cabinet storage in the wet bar since the sink water supply is leaking (I'll be redoing that run of lines this weekend) and cut the plastic off the original carpet remnant that is still under there to let it dry out :S

The entire under bar area seems like wasted space. I basically stuff junk into it that I can't fit anywhere else. I have fire extinguishers in the wine bottle rack and more junk...the drawer is too small to be useful...

What have people done to make this area better? Anything from redoing the bar in place same size (actual cabinets/drawers/shelves), reducing its size to open the floor plan, or eliminated it all together. I like the sink and ice maker, but if I had to pick one...I'd like to keep the ice maker! Not sure where to stick it if the bar goes completely...

I notice the false wall hides a deep pocket that runs the length of the stbd side of the boat. Has anyone finished this off with louvered doors for storage?

Lastly, what have people done for flooring? My carpet is a replacement, but is getting long in the tooth. My preference would be for some kind of wood floor, but I have access to some nice carpet remnants that would look good in the boat. I was thinking maybe wood in the salon and galley area, then recarpet the rooms.

Kind of a tall order and open ended questions, but I there has to be owners here ready to show off their boats B)

Thanks!

CB, under my solon table the floor is wood laminate. This makes for easy cleaning and it looks good too. The galley floor is the standard teak and holly which still looks nice. The rest of the boat is carpet. I prefer carpet because its a sound shield, feels good on cold mornings, comfortable on bare feet and gives an overall "warm" feeling.

Beans, one of the first assignments was to add some shelves under the bar. Easy peasy. Our ice maker died so that became another bunch of shelves that we used for cases of water and other beverages.
Our carpet is original and is on the short list to be replaced but I'm debating with myself about putting down teak and holly, lining the hatched similar to the galley hatch, adding a hatch to the cave under the helm and having a rug that can be easily rolled out of the way when I need hatch access. And, do I remove all of the furnishings installed over the current carpet? The passageway to to fwd stateroom is definitely going teak and holly, but I'm in a quandary about how to attack the fwd stateroom carpet. Do I strip the whole room and replace all of the carpet? Or do I find a very close color match for the sole?
Just so you know you're not alone.

I have stripped carpet out of 38xx forward stateroom. The factory used copious amounts of glue for the pad and carpet. Don't be surprised if it takes a half day or more to get down to the bare floor. also there were hundreds of staples in the carpet around the edges of the hatch and opening. If you choose to install hard surface flooring a new hatch board will be needed to properly fit the opening since there will be a huge gap without the carpet wrapped around the edges.

Since I stay on the 3818 alone alot, I've been thinking about taking out the sink and cabinet
behind the helm and seeing if I can fit a smallish recliner in that corner.
Sitting on the benches just isn't the most comfortable to watch tv or movies.

When I replaced my flooring I did it with plank vinyl flooring. Love it, easy to keep clean and looks great. Very easy to install.

This is what I did to my 3460 interior. They are cheap $0.50 floor tiles that we cut on our laser cutter. They can just as easily be cut by hand with a little TLC. They are not hard to lay using contact glue. I have some spare tiles in the dock box so if they are damaged its simple to replace.

I like the laminate and tile ideas! Are those real porcelain tile?

The original carpet in mine was cut from around the furniture and then trimmed in close. Whoever did it, did a great job! But I'm the anal-retentive type to undo all the furniture and remove the carpet from under it so it is sitting on the actual deck floor...then make any adjustments for height after.

Pics are great! if anyone has a salon sans wet bar, that would be awesome!

They are 1/8" thick PVC or Vinyl floor tiles bought from the local hardware store. We cut the 1/4" light colored pieces between the darker color to make it look like the original design floor which worked out fine. The hardest part is getting the floor nice & smooth as any little piece rubbish left under the thin tiles will eventually create a lump & be inclined to wear over time. We laid 1/4" plywood over the original floor, applied filler between the gaps & sanded it with an electric sander to make it as smooth as we could between the joints. Its been down for 3 or 4 years with no issues. Time over I would use a thicker tile but its fine the way it is.

Here is a few pics of my salon, the PO had stripped out everything when he changed engines a few years earlier.
Ignore the floor, I will be installing some engineered wood this winter as soon as I find the right stuff.

Had no use for the Microwave so used the area for more storage...

Cool Beans,
One of my dock mates had Lonseal (marine teak and holly) installed thruout the interior of his 38. It replaced original carpet. The hatches are trimmed in teak. It looks great. It cost him about $4K installed. He fishes a lot and it is easy to clean. His floor was an inspiration to us to replace our carpet in the salon and PH with the same Lonseal teak and holly. We have a different vessel but maybe our experiences help you. I’ve written about it a few times previously. Just do a search under my name. In short, it was a lot of work, there are pluses and minuses but overall we love it. We use throw rugs here and there on the Lonseal to soften it up and the combo works great!

We did just replace the carpet in the hall and staterooms. That got rid of a lot of odors and is nice on bare feet. It is a good compromise. I did all the demo. Lots of glue and staples and I worked hard for 4-5 hours with a hand scraper, screw driver and pliers. It got the surface clean enough for pad/carpet but not nearly smooth enough for Lonseal. I used a local carpet warehouse outfit. The carpet and pad installed was $700 plus I gave the installer an extra $100. It took the installer about 10 hours and he worked hard and virtually nonstop using the old carpet as rough patterns. He mostly used double sided carpet tape for the install. It will be much easier to replace “the next time”. He was happy and I was happy to get it done!

Here’s a picture of our salon without the throw rugs and PH. Hope this helps you!

Woodsea, that Lonseal stuff looks nice! I don't have fish guts and blood, but people in and out swimming and tracking water in from rain and dewy mornings, lol.

I like the idea of breaking up the flooring. Lonseal in the salon and galley level, carpet the hallway and rooms with plush carpet and padding.

I like your salon mods Damorsoft! Keep the ideas and pictures coming!

I am right in there with you. We had an offer accepted on a 1989 3888, same engines. We started looking last February. Back then the sight of a boat like the 38xx was not something we would even consider. Our favorite boat for a while was a Uniflight 37 that was a single cabin, single head boat. It would've been great as a couples live aboard boat but no good for taking the kids and grandkids out overnight. The same broker that has the Uniflight listed also had a 3870 listed. I took a look at the 3870 and each item on my checklist was met. Fuel efficiency, two cabins, two heads, flybridge, roomy cockpit and one item that was not even on my checklist, ability to get up on a plane. But I thought my wife Bernie (she doesn't like the Admiral moniker) would veto the idea. I took her to see it and to my surprise she was ready to buy it on the spot. It had one thing that she really liked in the Uni which is the island berth. To cut to the point, the more we think about this boat the more we think there couldn't possibly be another boat that fits the bill like the 38xx. Maybe a 3988. I really like the 3587 but those have cramped engine room. The 32xx and 34xx are also very nice but no walk around berth that Bernie likes. We're super excited. Of course there is a comprehensive survey between now and ownership so who knows but we are I am sure as you are very hopeful and excited.
