The problem we have with the Lonseal is that it comes in 72" widths and we only really need something about 30" wide but about 10' long. So for it to be economical we would have to lay it with the stripes running sideway, and that just looks funny.
Laminate flooring that snaps together could be nice, but I'm just not sure how it would work with the curvature of the floor.
Maybe you and wristwister can get together on a roll. Seems to me you are in the same boat.

Re: Cabin Sole Options

When I fitted my new cabin sole I looked at numerous different samples of flooring looking for a teak and holly look. Most of them felt like linoleum or just didn't look real. I eventually found Amtico flooring. It comes in single strips of whatever width you chose and single strips of holly, again in a choice of widths. You glue everything down one at a time so it takes a while but is easy to do. I've had it down for over a year now and its incredibly hard wearing, no damage or scratches whatsoever despite being heavily used. I can't remember exactly how much it cost but I covered my entire cabin and the steps leading down and it was somewhere around $1,600 US.
