Re: Cabin Sole Ideas: TrafficMaster Allure Ultra

Problem with the stuff designed for the deck of your boat is that they charge you a crazy "marine" price for that stuff.

Re: Cabin Sole Ideas: TrafficMaster Allure Ultra

I've considered stuff like NuTeak and Lonseal, but it seems pretty damn expensive for what it is. For not much more, I could get Teak/Holly ply and have a much easier installation.

I'm looking for something solid and dependable, but at a better price than the alternatives

if you can remember, what was the name of the product?

Re: Cabin Sole Ideas: TrafficMaster Allure Ultra

How much does it weigh per square foot? After it is sealed and finished, what keeps it from emulating a skating rink if water falls on it? It looks gorgeous, though......
