Lino has to be laid on a very fair surface or every single
little lump and bump will show up like a set of doggies danglers. And, fake wood always looks like fake wood.
The better alternative is the use of the synthetic, loop pile fabric
which is often used for portable office partitions. A little 3M contact spray glue an afternoon with a pair of scissors and a six pack and you're all done. Looks great (no more than a six pack though), is resistant to stains and mildew and can be washed in situ with any detergent and a sponge.And, it hides beautifully the aforementioned lumps and bumps.
, the fabric
is called 'front runner', have a gander: Front Runner Fabric Range | Fabric Options
I built a 36'er in the 80's and stuck this stuff onto the inner hull
in the salon
and deck head
. It is brilliant!
