Woven Vinyl Flooring
Here is a fun story about trying to find the perfect solution for retro fit. I found the reference to woven vinyl floors with pads. The current AS floor products. I read all kinds of info and checked for vendors. Today after checking the Penelton mill end store in Portland for remnants of the print they use for AS napkins and placemats I walked across to the flooring department and just asked if anyone could source the WV product. Out walks the nicest lady who tells me they designed the product. They also supply AS all the flooring. What are the chances by kismet this would happen? She canít sell the patent patterns but they have 10 choices. Direct ship from their plant. Lots of samples. Vendor direct installation instructions. I got goosies about finding a new friend! They also do hatteras boats. Argosy trailers, etc. how fun!

Is one place. There is a trailer here in the forum done with the stripes, which are actually meant to look like teak slat floors in boats. The vinyl is very thick with nice texture, light weight, comes with a super "not too thick padded backing" and glues directly to the floor. Can be water and soap cleaned, just no solvent based cleaners. 866-785-6507. I attached some pictures to show the colors against a table about the color of the wood in our AS. Also a pc of vinyl click floor for comparison of thickness.

As stated earlier in this thread you need to template carefully or hire a professional. Mike has done several big boats and he wants to have it cut into maybe two pcs to lay... That is if he finds the electrical short before he takes the rest of the walls and cabinets out trying to find it!:lol:

What kind of pricing are we looking at per square foot?

How do you get say ground in dirt out of the weave?
Is it easily cleanable?

The dirt vacuums right out without issue. Several customers with big dogs love it for cleanup.

Price per yard (last we checked several years ago) was quite a bit more expensive than Marmoleum. Like twice as much...
