  1. We have had a few discussions on types of plywood and sealing methods for boat flooring, but we have not really explored other boat flooring options, My floor is due to be replaced (the plywood is getting soggy/soft after 8 years now) and im looking at more permanent alternatives to plywood (that could be just as cost effective) So far i have come up with: 1. Expanded polystyere sheets (im talking about the dense sheets here which are used in sign making and as pontoon floatation, not the crumbly polystyrene we think of generally), i have had some 20mm submerged in water for a while (weeks) with no observable effects. Solvents could be an issue which MIGHt eat away at the polystyrene so i have exposed some sheet to petrol, it seems to have had no immediate effect (no visible reaction as you would see with other traditional polystyrene foam). 2. White cutting board material (high density polyethylene sheets) ultimate stuff! a little on the heavy side and i believe the costs will be high 3. Aluminium decking, relatively cheap material which should last, the downside is the heat absorbed (and then released on your bare feet!) , but if we were sticking marine carpet or regupol over it then theres no problem right? What other options/ suggestions do others have for this ongoing problem?
  2. Good Morning I have to replace some part of my boat flooring. I have now cut out the same shape of new plywood, 12mm. My question: Do I have to paint it with some timber sealant / deck oil / resin, before I glue the marine carpet on it?
