Sea Knight Cockpit deck covering suggestions.

Postby Craig Aho » Mon May 29, 2017 11:54 am

Does anyone have a suggestion for my cockpit floor? I originally had intended some kind of floor vinyl like nautilex but now just want to get it done and think a floor paint with a little sand for non skid would be quick and effective. What color though?

I have used old fashion porch paint with a table spoon or so of clean dry sand. I think the most common colors are green or grey.

Hi Bill, I remember you telling me that back a year or so ago. I think that is what I want to do. Any help on a color that makes sense, Gray? Oh it helps to continue reading before asking further advice,:) thank you Bill

Hey Craig, good to hear from you. Hope the boat is doing well. Let us see what she looks like.

Here are a few links for possible floor coverings. There are other's. I was looking for a link I had showing material that is made from recycled plastic, feels like carpet and looks great. Drains very quickly (i.e.dries quickly). Can't remember the product name but I am sure a Google search will turn up something.

Hello Carl, Not making much progress just yet due to lots of other needs at home. Thanks for the suggestions.

Craig,

I have nautilex on my fishing boat. It was put down like a vinyl floor and rolled up the sides and under the side panels, so very quick and clean installation. The boat also has a snap-in deck carpet similar to the suggestion in Carl's post so when the boat isn't used for fishing it can be used for "luxury". Both materials seem to meet my number one requirement - impervious to fish guts :mrgreen:

Hello Tom, My original plan was to use the Nautilex material that looked like planking with caulk lines which I had used many years back on my Owens, but it is no longer available. It would have looked great and was very easy to apply. I still have a sample of it and don't know why they discontinued it.

Something like this:

Shipping might hurt a bit, though....

Craig:

I know there is a plastic material that looks like planking available. I remember seeing it at the NY boat show in Jan. They were showing it used as flooring and on swim platforms. I wasn't interested so I didn't get a brochure, but I'm sure an internet search will turn something up.

Craig,

Ah yes. The flooring on my boat looks like the stuff they used in cars in the 50's, definitely not teak and holly. I used some teak and holly veneer plywood below deck on a sailboat that worked OK. Brad Tucker used Dek-King artificial teak for the sole and swim platform on his Georgia Tahoe 23. It has an gray teak look. You might also check out Lonseal vinyl flooring. Maybe one of those would work.
