Hi - I'm looking for suggestions on liner/covering for my table/cabinet tops and flooring options. I had a shelf liner covering my dinette table and it was serviceable but want a more finished look. On the floor, I have a thin black rubber mat thats ok.

I'd like to upgrade both. Any ideas out there?

Hi Westie,

I can't help you with the table covering...but for your cabin floor I would highly recommend Lonseal. It is very economical and IMO looks better than the bigger marine flooring options like Plasdeck, Nu Teak etc (and I'm speaking from experience, I installed Plasdeck on my 19).

Any questions feel free to PM me.

For the counters and table top, you can buy sheets of laminate, like "Formica". Many different patterns, and you can cut it with a trim router to fit exactly, after gluing it in place, and removing the teak trim (so it looks like original). Then re-install the trim.

I have also have both glass (laminated safety glass) and clear acrylic sheets on the dinette table. We put current carts of the area we are in under the clear glass or acrylic. I would only use a safety glass, with sanded edges--to avoid cuts and breakage.

I agree the various fake teaks took great. I commented (a bit in jestI) to Marie that after seeing it glowing in they dark, It might cause vertigo. Also several have used the high end DECKadence flooring--which is washable and all dirt seems to go thru. It is a very cushioned deck covering. (See Gulf Coast John's album).

Here is what we did on Daydream when we removed the Wallas! I cut the new countertop out of plywood and Patty applied the laminate. We got a smaller sink that gave us more countertop space as well.

We also installed fake teak and holly flooring, not a necessity but it sure does look good!

Pat and Patty, That really looks nice.

Does the counter top get warm (too warm) under that stove?

World Panel Co in FL and NC has all types of wood and manmade flooring for boats. My CD22 has their wood tea-and-holly plywood laid on the sole, secured only by small quarter-round molding around the perimeter. Its great under bare feet, regardless of its surface temperature, or if its wet or dry. It does take a little cleaning periodically, and it doesn't hurt to nourish the natural wood with a light oil, like teak oil, at the end of the boating season. For me, this was a great find.
The biggest challenge was constructing a flat floor to support it on the centerline, which I did with several "ribs" made of ash.

Following Gulfcoast John's lead, I installed Decadence flooring in both the cockpit and salon of my TomCat. Would recommend it. Very user friendly. Costly, but worth the investment. The daily ritual of floor cleaning ceased with this product- floor always looks clean despite the gathering of the dirt under the material. There are good pics of this on John's website.
Hope this helps, Jeff

Photos tiles are pretty cool for the table, and easy to do. Take a pic of your boat and order the tiles online.

416: That's neat! Nice "thinking outside of the box" (maybe in more ways than one!).

Not sure how to add photos, but take a look at my photo album. I did a collage and embedded it in table top epoxy. Turned out really nice, and adds a personal touch.

I had the same challenge on my Tomcat. I ended up using Formica for the galley, the table, and the small toaster/Microwave counter aft of the settee. I even had enough left from the remnants I got for $20 to go under my removable helm seat for extra prep area and an on deck cutting table.
It looks original since I was able to find a gray color that was similar to my interior seats. You will be pretty limited if you are only looking at what is currently in Home Depot or Lowes.
Two hints.
1.You might want to look for a architectural salvage store or a formica fabricator where you live that has Formica remnants and you might be able to do the whole thing for a few bucks plus $12 in contact cement.
2.If you are not comfortable removing the teak trim, you can cut the Formica to fit in but there will probably be some gaps. If so use some painters tap and teak (Light Brown) caulk and fill the gap tightly. Put the tape on the formica and teak so you have a small area, Remove the painters tap and the lines will be crisp and professional so you will not even notice the gaps plus it keeps all the crumbs and water out .You can also ad a very small piece of teak trim to cover the gaps to cover the gaps
Good luck
