Thanks for giving the specifics. I agree that the raw cork you glue appears to be more long lasting and withstand abuse better than the prefinished method. One last question--what is a lino roller?

Jeanarlene,

A lino roller is just one of those super heavy rollers used to roll out lino after it has been applied.They can be rented at any Home Depot.This step helps to press the cork tiles firmly into the glue.

Awesome floor,
I also like the bench seating/sleeping areas.
Did you build these? I need to figure out how to sleep 5 in my 25' tradewind and the front sofa sleeper is gone.

Great information. I've been considering cork for my 56' bubble ever since I saw it at a home tour this summer. In fact it looked just like yours. Can you give me the specific manufacturer and your material number so I make sure I end up with your look?

Thanks
Ken

Cork

Charcigar - great job girl! I too, went into my flooring for the first time
and really had a lot of pleasure clearing it, the sanding, the patching. It was
easier than I thought and now I have one nice part lino and was searching around
for the rest. Would you mind sharing where you got yours at? I want to
keep the look as natural as I can for the front part, sorta like how your pattern is,
I have looked at some cork board flooring and it looks so much different
than yours. Interesting side note everyone - In the last issue of National Geographic
There is a small pic and article about how the cork tree farmers are hurting
due to lack of consumer demand for corks.....Hmmmmm They not know us 'Streamers
are about to put them back on the map!
Thank you Charcigar - beautiful job and I really appreciate your info.

Thumbs up Beautiful cork floor

Wow - I feel so fortunate! Our Argosy is now home in Colorado. But, we are looking at floor we realize some rejuvenation in is order. The tired brown carpet is BAD!!!! and underneath we will have to repair/replace some/all of the plywood. Sooo glad to see your beautiful flooring and happy to know thru some investigation that it is environmentally a good idea too, since the cork comes from the bark of the tree Anyway, we too would like to know the particulars on your specific flooring as it sounds like something we can accomplish ourselves (unlike some projects for later). Thanks for the pics and info to date, very informative. Leigh/Price

To answer some of the recent questions on this thread:

Rob-No,I di dnot build the bench seating/sleeping areas.Those are original.I just refinished them.

Ken and others who enquired as to the cork supplier-The supplier I used was NFP Imports.I beleive this cork pattern was called "Madiera".I used the unfinsihed planks with a micro bevel edge.This is a Canadian company,but they do ship.

nfpimports.com

Smile NFP imports

Thanks for the 888 #. I called and made Ben aware of his internet site being unavailable. He was going to check with his provider right away and hopefully it is either up and running again or will be by tomorrow. Can you give a ballpark on what your total cost was for replacement? Not trying to be nosy, just need to get a feel for how soon we might attempt the same! Leigh
