Edging is quite annoying between a flat cabin sole and a curved hull.

What did you use?

My boat also has extremely annoying corners where the bulkheads and hulls meet. Those areas are large radius cove joints. A compound negative curve. Been wrestling with how to make them look nice. In the shower, I just loaded them up with caulking which came out pretty good. In other areas… it’s a mystery

Right?? I thought he was showing it as a wall covering for a moment, which it would also do well

These were my first thought also and high on the list for being a renewable resource, natural and having no chemicals or off gassing. Lighter than vinyl I suspect also. . Probably the winner, actually.

The cork is also very easy to work with on odd surfaces. Might be hard to tell in these photos but the sole of the V-berth has compound curves.

We used a similar product on a catamaran from Lumber Liquidators 17 years ago.

Looked great and very forgiving.

The edging was binding tape.

Re: Damaged Stained catamaran salon floor acid

I have researched cork flooring. Note that you can get it any color you like. Also, there are several textures to choose from.

I found this to be my choice but we didn’t make the move yet as the floor isn’t at the top of the list yet

We just bought this boat and are currently in Florida where prices are very high. Once we head down island we will explore other options. I will definitely post an update once we do find someone to replace the flooring at a reasonable price.
Aren't prices "down island" likely to be higher than they are in Florida? The materials have to be purchased (in Florida?), shipped to the islands, import taxes paid, and then the workmen there are the only guys on the island who do it, so they charge whatever they like. If it's a simple resurfacing job, similar to re-doing a kitchen floor, maybe Home Depot's flooring department would be worth trying.

Rugs could be good, but because curious souls are apt to lift the rug to inspect the floor, stain the light spots red and write, " GET OUT NOW!" next to the spots.

Re: Damaged Stained catamaran salon floor acid

Yacht Concepts in La Rochelle, France is a third party vendor who has access to Lagoon woods. They do fantastic wood work.

If it was me and I was in France, I would take it to them and have the floor replaced

Re: Damaged Stained catamaran salon floor acid

There are 3 till 4mm thick "click rigid vinyl" tiles avaliable that are waterproof "made for bathrooms" as the backside consits of SPC = stone power coat and not hpc wood. Rigid means there is also stone powder in the vinyl which makes them extra rigid.
An example i wanna use:
https://www.planeo.de/klick-vinyl/pl...st-rs7339.html

Makes laying down much easier as you just deal with boards 130cm x 25cm that click into each other. Also cutting the them to odds shape is much easier and if you made a mistake you loose 1 board which you mostly can use somewhere else.
Just put on existing floor and because you don't glue easy to replace if you don't like or something like this happens again you can just replace parts, just order one pack more and store in case that happens.
My plan to redo floors on my lavezzi because they are too dark and hulls have a mixture of gelcoat and wooden floorboards and would like change that to one uniform surface.
