* I have used the EVA teak effect flooring and it works very well, cleans easily.
I use my Hardy for fishing trips and the blood etc wipes of okay.

Hi Jim,

Many, many for this, all measurements now very nearly match so I can now retire to the garage for a few hours!

Thanks for your help again,

Michael

Michael,
No problem happy to help.

Looking at Flexiteek think they also have another brand Isoteek. Using template paper you can send this to company to bond decking, edging to your specification. My preference is DIY option as not a large area.

It is 4-5kg mtr sq. They recommend a heavy roller to help fix decking onto adhesive www.flexiteek.co.uk

EVA - This seems to be a foam type with surface finish. Read article that stated it does not have same surface burn protection.

Carpet - Not for me as this could hold water.

Worth getting samples as price varies ,like everything boat!

Good luck,
Kenny

Hi Jim and Kenny,

Thank you both for the information, another lockdown project can be started. Obviously I will err on the side of safety!

Just a couple of questions,

To Jim:
Can you confirm the measurement just below the two horizontal 11" measurements. Is it 14"? I can't quite see and the pic doesn't enlarge well.

To Kenny:
Flooring will be a future project for me. May I ask a what type you used? I have been looking at the EVA teak striped stuff on Ebay (see link) but don't know if it is robust enough.

* Hello Jim,

Thanks for your offer of help, hope this works, unable to get to the boat.

The measurement I am after on this drawing is just the distance between 'seat locker' top left and 'galley over berth' roughly top centre.

Not all boats are the same but ours has an empty space in this area. See attached 'hopefully'.

Thanks again,

Michael

If you text me a photo to explain what you are looking for exactly, I can measure it for you tomorrow. I have an 1984 Family Pilot. I am new to boating so still trying to get my head around the basic terminology.

Visiting the boat at the moment can hardly be described as essential so I wonder if anyone can help me with a little information so that I can get on with a woodworking project at home.

Do you know, or can you remember, the measurement, on the port side, between the front of the stern port locker and the back of the galley grp moulding?

I want to make a step/stool to fit in this space, sitting on the floor, to make it easier to step down into the cockpit. I suspect that this is a project others have undertaken.

The boat is an '86 Family Pilot, the stern lockers are glassed in ply with carpet over, the galley contains a two burner cooker with folding cover and a circular sink. No modifications, looks pretty 'standard' to me.

Any help much appreciated, I won't blame you if it doesn't subsequently fit!
