Pretty. But to dark and busy for me.

If you look at the before picture the room looks brighter and a bit larger with the light subfloor.

But that's just me.

I like what you did by removing the dinette and opening it up a bit. You might have lost a little storage, but you've gained maneuvering space and flexible seating. Is that a drop leaf table?

Looks great!!

Not to defeat the purpose, but a hall runner type carpet on exposed parquet flooring works for us. Saves wear on the main walk through track finish, nice underfoot in the galley, can look good without losing the timber effect

A little dark for my taste, but, the admiral says I have no taste.

You have good taste. We put the exact same floor in our trawler. It has been down for 2 1/2 years now and we still love it.

Yes it is a floating floor, cost around 600 to do the whole boat, water 'proof' good feel underfoot and makes a good sound barrier for engine noise too ... If it lasts as it's said to I will be very happy indeed !

What a relief! I had a mental image of you skipping down the dock with your tatoos and pink cowboy hat

I glued it to the hatches and left a little hanging over the edges and then used a router. They came out perfect.

It's a little freaky. Give me time to adjust.

While attending a graduation function yesterday, coming out of the auditorium the floor was covered with close nap carpet with a wood grain pattern that appeared perfect for a boat application. Has any, reviewing this thread had opportunity to come across such a rug cover and would there be a idea where one could look? I tried Google on a chance and nothing appeared close.
Thanks,
Al-Ketchikan
