You can also look at plynyl, p l y n y l. Used by some modern designers. Expensive, but it has a woven surface so it's got a texture and wouldn't be slippery like some hard or smooth vinyl surfaces, but at the same time water cannot penetrate it or be absorbed in it like carpet. It has a soft rubber like backing so it's softer to walk on than hard surfaces, isn't cold on barefeet and it can't be scratched or dented (it's practically indestructible). It's available in a lot of different colors and patterns.

I went with Lonseal over 25 year old teak-and holly. The only downside was the $600, but it is easier than new teak veneer plywood and looks like the real thing.

Of course, timber's other than teak can also be used. Just ensure they are well protected both sides. My floor is epoxied to the original ply floor, so is safe from water the underside and is poly'd the topside with 5 or 6 heavy coats, so is safe from water topside.

For God so loved the world..........He didn't send a committee.

Seacork is not a regular cork floor, it is a specially designed, cork base floor, for boats.

So, it is a very good option.
If you need info/samples/prices, contact me.

We are selling from more than 20 years, this material, in France.

I'm considering Cork/Bamboo or try this!

Some of the new home flooring products look to me like they would be easy and work well.... as well as economical. Really not sure how wet proof they are, but they are made to be mopped etc. If the inside of your boat doesnt get sloshing water around all the time, then I would think they would work fine..... If you want real easy, I put the grey 2 ft square locking foam mats in a small boat and it worked great! I'm talking about the stuff that is about 3/8 to 1/2 thick and interlocks around the edges. Just cut to fit your floor, pull it up anytime you want. and it's a real nice cushion on the feet. There are even colored versions...
