Re: Concrete Countertops on a Boat ?

Concrete counter tops have got to be the most high maintenance material available. Not good for a house let alone a boat.
Just my 2 pence.

I'm not familiar with this product.
Can it be cut, drilled, sanded, painted, varnished, nailed or screwed, just like normal timbers?
How does it compare for cost?

Re: Concrete Countertops on a Boat ?

Vic, it is actually a synthetic lumber. Nails well, I use trim gun, glues good with proper glue, you can paint it, or leave it. Comes usually in beige or white, however I think it can be had in other colors. I don't think it will hold a screw as well as, say a piece of Mahoganhy, but it can be fastened. I have never seen "starboard" but seems to have a lot of the same qualities. 4x8' sheet 1/2" about $110.00 For where I use it exterior trim is almost always cosmetic, it works great, and you can guarantee it will not rot....Red

Re: Concrete Countertops on a Boat ?

I used this stuff on my land galley;

The Official site of Giani Granite Paint for Countertops USA

It's paint, but when you stare at it, you would swear you're looking into a stone surface with depth. A neat effect that I didn't expect.
