Question Cabin Floor

Anyone had to replace their cabin flooring? I have an SCR3200 with half wood half carpet. The carpet is nasty and cannot be cleaned. I would like to strip the entire floor and replace with a vinyl wood covering. Any thoughts?

Maxum330 welcome aboard.

While I have not done this others have, hopefully they will chime in. You can also try looking under the projects section.

I used "ultra allure"......home depot product...100% vinyl....floating flooring, no glue....7in. wide, four feet long.
Very easy to work with......removing old floor and padding a real pain in the $ss.....I have pics somewhere....will try to get them up..

Thanx to all responses. I got some incentive to attack the job. I have located a "Permateak" dealer very close to my Marina. They also install. Wify and I are excited to move to the install project. We love our SCR3200 and to give her a new flor job.

I second the HomeDepot Allure product. I just did my 95 3200 scr earlier this year. It was a real pain to pull up the carpet and the padding. The wood section is one piece, its essentially held with silicone, it pries up easily, but getting that floor smooth afterwards is all the work. Get a good floor scraper, with changeable blades. When you have it as clean as possible, to make the vinyl planking seal real tight, it needs to be on a smooth surface, and the underlying fiberglass isn't smooth. I put down 3/16 underlayment, silicone'd it and screwed it down with 1/2 inch screws, sinking them flat with the underlayment, and the vinyl floor is click-n-lock, so it goes in quick and just floats.

I also did the section under the dinette since that's also part of the floor. I changed the swing-up cabinet door so that the dinette floor is smooth and the panel is only accessed from the side. I did this by removing the access door, took two 1/2 inch pieces of solid oak and screwed them to the flanges the access door rests on. With the 3/16 underlayment on top, the height comes out perfectly even for the Allure flooring to sit on. On the edge of the dinette floor, I simply bought and nailed in corner molding and I intend to do the same for the edge that separates the cabin floor from the aft cabin. The aft cabin, along with the rest of the carpeted walls, was all redone with new carpet, also from HomeDepot. I'll try to snap some pictures of the floor and post here. Here is one of the pics after the carpet was pulled and in the process of pulling carpet off.

I like the Idea of making the door under dinette flat with side entrance. Defiantly take that in consideration on our redo. Thanx.

Here are the pics of my '95 3200 SCR new flooring just this spring. Its Allure Vinyl Planking from Home Depot, color is Rustic Maple, also new rug on the walls and aft cabin, also from Home Depot. While I was at it, I replaced the old table pedestal floor mounts as well and made the dinette floor flat by changing the side cabinet under it to open only from the side. I finished the dinette floor with a piece of corner molding along the edge (I still have to fill, sand, stain it though). The floor floats, I did *not* have to glue it down nor nail it. And given the small space, I left very little space on the ends (instructions said to leave about 1/4 inch for expansion, but I figured they are expecting that to be in an entire room in a house, not a small cabin floor. So the ends just disappear into the carpet on the walls, makes for a clean look than adding quarter round molding all around. Its feels great on bare feet, not slippery at all if wet (coming out of shower). Cleans up real easy. I have 3 small kids (12, 10, 8 years of age), and this floor is great especially given the cost and ease of installation. I still have to do the corner molding on the edge by the aft cabin, just haven't gotten around to it though.

Looks great Jam..... I used same material, light cherry. I do like the modification at the floor under the table. Unfortunately I had to leave that area carpet, my boxer dog uses this to get up on the bed. I'm not a fan of her on the bed, but it keeps her from under my feet! For the transition between the aft cabin and main floor, I just used some one inch aluminum angle. Took a 80 grit DA sander to it to give it some custom "scratches".... I wish I could get my tapatalk to work!!! I know I posted some pics in the tapatalk thread.....
