I hate off-white formica. It is ugly, makes the boat
look dated and my boat
is covered in it.
So.... what to do?
Specifically, what to do in the heads where the formica is everywhere?
I have spoken at length with a local granite counter top company and they can make me granite counter tops for the heads and galley
at a reasonable rate given the small size of the pieces I will need. These would be relatively thin and while heavy they would not be crazy heavy. I planned to basically glue them down over the existing formica covered plywood
But that leaves the large formica covered wall areas in the heads.
I could paint
it I guess....? Anyone done that with good results? Anyone have photos?
I also read a while back in a magazine about a boat refit
that used 2" square "tiles" made of a colored lexan
or other semi-clear polycarbonate material to achieve a very nice tiled look without the weight of ceramic or such. These were fixed down with 5200 I believe.
Anyone tried that? Any ideas on where such a material could be sourced?
