  • New cabin flooring

    I have noticed several pictures of the newer 28's with what looks like a plank laminate flooring in the cabin. I have not had a chance to go to the factory, shame on me it's an hour flight from home, to see how this is installed. Wonder if this can be installed over the "painted floor" that all the older models have installed?

    Couple years ago when I was in St. Thomas, the locals were redoing a 31 Bertram with cork flooring in the cabin and on the deck. LOOKS GREAT! What they did was cut a templet from a sheet of card board to fit the area. Once fitted it was removed to the dock and strips of cork were placed on the templet, black rubber joint seem compound was then added between the cork strips. When cured, it was sanded and the backing removed. Placed in the boat and glued to the deck. Easy to clean up because it won't absorb stains, soft on the feet and looks terrific.

    Just wondering if any of you have tackled a project like this?

    Cabin Sole

    Teak and holly soles for the cabin can be added to your boat. The footprint of the cabin has not changed. The flooring is 'assembled'/cut at the factory and glued down in one piece . . .

    We have ordered that item in the past to add it to 28s for customers . . .

        That option was $450 in the 2007 price list, obviously included installation. Call CC and see what they can send you a kit for.

          Floor

          I added the floor to my 28 and was very pleased. Mac sent the floor already finished and told ne how to install it which was very simple. I forget the price but it was less than the $450 factory option.

            I am curious. Did the floor come in planked sections or one piece? I am guessing it is glued down with some sort of adhesive? Is it solid wood or veneered? Thanks.

              The flooring as a teak/holly laminate on plywood cut with a CNC router at the factory. I believe it is just fastened with the use of an adhesive. It should be a fairly easy self-install.

                Floor

                It is attached using RTV which dried over night. The Factory cut and fit was perfect.

                  Nick-

                  Are the two sections (upper and lower cabin floor) fully assembled in one piece when you got them or did you have to assemble the floor sections?

                    any one have the cost of the kit from the factory, thinking about putting it in my 2001 28, always thought it looked sharp on boats at Mac's place

                      Ordered mine from Mac, cost was $385. It come in two pieces and fits like "socks on a rooster ". Easy to install with construction adhesive and let dry.
