Furniture Movement

This is the first boat that I have owned that does not have built-in furniture.

I have a Mainship 36 Dual Cabin motoryacht and 90% of the salon sole is removable for access to the engines.

The engine compartment is below the salon so fixing furniture to the removable deck boards is neither practical nor safe.

How do you guys and gals secure your furniture while on the go?

Re: Furniture Movement

Carpet. If that is the only way into the engine room it will take someone pretty talented to install it. If that access is only for large jobs just do wall to wall.

The Admiral developed a degenerative lung disorder this past year and so carpet is out of the question due to it being a dust collector. The settee will prevent access to the starboard engine from the top, under normal conditions, this should not be a problem.
I'm looking for a simple solution to keep the furniture in place while under way and still allow relatively quick access to the engines below. Wall hooks might be one of my options.

Re: Furniture Movement

Rubber non-skid backing of the sort used to keep area rugs and decorative (e.g., "oriental") carpets from sliding around might work.

Similar to shelf liners to keep dishware from wandering. Home Depot and so forth usually have some heavier-duty versions of the stuff. I'm thinking they may be less prone to dust collection, especially if cut to fit completely under the furniture?

And then maybe/maybe not wall hooks to augment...
