    Boat floor install 2000 ish Bayliner 2855-gctid357339

    Hi,

    I've been asked to quote on an a floor install for a faux teak product (not sure if it's a laminate or some other material but will find out over the weekend). I'm not sure what would be reasonable since this isn't my primary line of work. I'm comfortable charging $60/hour on any boat related work so if I estimate a full week (remove carpet and anything in the way, prep floor, install floor and moldings, put back together) it would come to $2400. I'd like to hear from others that are in the business and what a 'fixed' price should look like.

    Thanks for all that chime in.

    Gary,

    PS: This request came about by a person who saw my work on my 2850 at the marina.

    I did a 2855 in REAL teak and wrote the article for DIY boating magazine. It took 4 hours from start to finish. the wood was about $200 in finished 3 inch planks.

      A quote of $2400 would make me run the other way. I did my floor with a vinyl. It didn't take much more than a few hours. The hardest part was cleaning up the floor after carpet

        I must be miss judging how much flooring is in a 2855. I'll be looking at the boat tomorrow to have a better idea. Any marine trades out there that can chime in?

          Garball , Joe440 just did a 245 in the "Completed projects " here on the forum . Obviously the 2855 will be slightly longer and include a raised area under the dinette plus the stairs if your doin them. Maybe hit him up and ask timewise where he was at. $2400.00 does seem high to me . I do remodeling for a living ( not on boats so what the hell do i know). If it is a laminate or similar or even still vinyl of some sort, you could definitly benefit from taking a little extra time to plastic off and tarp off the aft cockpit for your saw or cutting table depending on material . would save an insane amount of time as opposed to jumping on and off the boat. Good luck with your project.

            My boat is smaller, so there was a lot of cutting (no full planks) I used Allure Ultra vinyl click lock planks. I bought 2 boxes ($60 each) and had 3/4 of a box left over and 1 tube of adhesive glue ($5). Took me about 12 hours to remove carpet, cut, install and glue down new floor. I did all my work inside the cabin so I had to vacuum each time I cut a plank so that took a lot of time. If I could have cut all the planks in the cockpit it would have saved me a few hours. I'm no professional so I took my time and enjoyed the project.

              It's not a big floor area. Here is mine. To be fair I didn't do below the dinette because the carpet there was still in good shape, and will probably last a long time.
