We have some samples. One has PSA backing, the whole back is covered with the adhesive. It isnít high on my list so far since it is very thin, but it is also very light in comparison to some of the others. The ones with some sort of foam backing are thicker, so they may cover uneven substrate better but they are also much heavier. The heavier ones are a bit of a drawback since it will be in a planing hull.

Yes, this was a problem. I fastened three sides with carpet tacks and liquid nails adhesive, then slid in the flooring. The last piece I just squirted the liquid nails in there under it and put some weigh on it for a couple of days. I used a long piece of 2x6 or something, piled up with heavy stuff, to keep it pressed evenly down the whole time.

This is at least the third time the sole has been replaced. The PO used square adhesive vinyl, and both the adhesive and the tile failed. I tried the adhesive backed planks and had the same result. I'm hoping the third time (and click-together) is the charm. Time will tell.

FYI, I only did the J-channel around the hatches, not the edges. The flooring is supposed to be cut shy of the walls (bulkheads, in this case) to leave room for expansion. Traditionally, you cover the gap with quarter-round, or base molding. And the edging doesn't give you much room; mine is maybe a quarter-inch wide. Not much room for error or expansion/contraction.

I found a company called flexiblemillwork.com that makes quarter round that is flexible. They say it can be stained or painted. I am going to order a piece and do some tests on it to see how it looks.

I have used both Nuteak Sythetic Teak Deck | Nuteak Synthetic Marine Teak Decking
and EZ boat Sole https://www.plasteak.com/plasteak-re...ring-whole-box. I installed EZ Boat Sole in my cabin 5 years ago and it looks as good today as when installed. Couple years ago I installed Nuteak and it has held up well.

This really looks nice. Did you have to remove the flooring being replaced to maintain the same floor thickness?

I was given a roll of cushioned flooring vinyl bought several years back by somone but was not used and we planned on using it on our dirt house but as yet have not.

It has a very realistic spotted gum plank pattern to it.
Same planking as used in our hull

Not saying this is the same brand but does look similar
