Floor replacement

Postby leskerr » Tue Jul 28, 2020 3:24 pm

Our 2004 boat is for sale, and a prospective buyer asked us a question that we couldn't answer.
1) What kind of flooring is underneath the carpet from the original setup?
2) Approximately how much does it cost to replace the carpet with a wooden floor? (just ballpark)
Thanks to anybody who has experience with this.

Plywood - Not sure about the cost but we plan to do ours soon.

Yup, plywood.

Budget around four boat dollars for the floor.

If your boat is carpeted, there is plywood underneath. 3/4" plywood and not a pretty grade. Carpet hides a lot of sins.

I replaced my carpet with a synthetic "teak and holly" product and had to fill in the knotholes and other defects. I also had to add wood around the hatches to fill the space left to turn the carpet under.

I spent about $1500 in materials and many hours of labor. I had to make new mahogany baseboard and trim and cover the side where the carpet had run up to the seat with laminate.

That looks awesome, great job! I would love to see some more picks of what you did. Is that a shelf/chart holder under the wheel?
Also, how did you deal with the area in front of the V berth (floor follows hull)

That shelf and chart holder is from the previous owner. They used only paper charts and a compass. I am more of a chart plotter guy so while I find the shelf extremely convenient I don't use the chart holder.

I have many more photos of the floor job and I had them on the Internet, but a replacement computer lost that information.

In front of the V berth, I cut a piece of 3/4" plywood to fit and applied the flooring strips to that and set it in place. There's no curve anymore.
