    Wood Floors

    Thinking about putting wood floors in my 75' Fantasy. Has anyone done this? Wondering if it would be best to use laminate, or solid; float the floor, glue the floor, or nail. Thank you in advance!

    I used engineered mahogany and floated it over a vapor proof barrier. Put quarter round all around the edges. This is the snap together. 3-4 years old now looks great!

    I have seen it in several boats. Some look good, some don't. Hatches seem to be the difficult part. Also, you need to look closely at how you use your boat. If you have wet people coming in and out of it, it would be real careful of what type of flooring I put in it. Some of the thick vinyl plank product looks really close to real wood.
