    Carpet or Hardwood???-gctid352581

    Well the dehumidifier is doing the job so far..... So me n my wife we were talking about the options for flooring....

    There is a special grade of carpet, hardwood or laminated for boats?

    Installation done the same way as housing beside that the carpet is glue to the subfloor?

    Any Suggestions?

    Weather permitting I wanna start working on that. According to the flooring that we choose is the cabinet finishing that I can do. And of course the rest of my finishing.

    Any help is more than welcome

    It's very hard to understand who ever done my boat.....

    outside.... dark blue and med. blue with white....on my opinion great combination....

    inside....gray with silver details bench seats (floral patron) floor is green, walls are blue and gray.....wall paper is white and blue one side and the other white and red dots.....cabinets 2 grays 1 white.... the edges are wood finish and blue formic..... I dont know if that was the style on the 80's but I thing someone forgort to appear in the "arts" classes...lol.....

      I did hardwood on my 1996 2452 and linoleum on the 2001 2452. The hardwood took a whole weekend and the linoleum took all of a couple of hours... and I think it looks better, can be wet and just wipes clean. I'll be tackling the carpet under the dinette next... I bought a pack of linoleum from Home Depot or Lowes... Got enough left to finish the rest of the carpeted areas...

      The hardwood had to be glued down and the linoleum was not glued down. I cut an edge under the vertical at floor edges and tucked the flooring into that.

          The wood floor was butted up against the vertical surfaces and glued down. The one with linoleum... I used a grinder and ground about 1/4" cut at the base of all the vertical surfaces and tucked the linoleum in the groove. Very easy, no laminate under either job. I did have to level some areas that had excess fiberglass resin making it a little lumpy. Took about 15 minutes to level them with the grinder... Beware, dust was everywhere... a mask is required...

          I found black mold under each carpet that I ripped up and that was a major cause of both of us coughing at night...

          The Admiral uses a carpet runner to keep the flooring from getting too cold underfoot on cool days...
