I looked at Lonseal too, and it seems like a great option. I was concerned about using sheet vinyl products because I have a big pair of hatches in the middle of the sole, and the edges had to be dealt with somehow.
In the end, I went to Lowes and bought vinyl "planks"
(3' x 4"). I just finished the saloon
sole last weekend, and it looks great!
, I tested every vinyl product in both Lowe's and Home Depot by scratching a sample aggressively with a set of keys. Only the planks at Lowe's passed the test. My wife took a sharp metal scraper to one of the scraps while we were installing them, and was amazed how hard it was to scratch.
For the record
, I needed thin flooring for this application, so vinyl was the only answer. I've heard good things about cork and bamboo, but I couldn't go there this time.
