I was thinking about covering some of the wood in our boat to make it look softer if that makes sence.
Saw this boat and it has the covering I am thinking about. Anybody tell me what I am looking for? It's the light blue around the presses.

If you don't use your boat. Sell it.

Looks like very short, tight pile carpet to me. Often used but please don't get a foam backed type! Perishes to dust and "orrible" to sort afterwards!
"Floatex" used to be the bees knees for this as it was so flexible but was very expensive. There was/is a cheaper version called "floorex". Could be worth investigating.

I can recommend Harrison Trim Supplies. I used some of their carpet wall material in the wheelhouse of a boat. It looks good and is easy to apply. Harrison can supply the adhesive as well. They also can send you a sample card of the lining in the various colours.

Hi. He lining shown is Veltrim. A surface lining used in many applications including soundproofing in music studios and protection for speakers etc.
Just type this in eBay for prices.

Roughly trim to size then Apply with spray adhesive and trim to exact fit.

Also try Dunelm Shop as they have a good selection of Velour and Vinyl  which could be used as well.

I'm fitting out my boat with fabric panels to revitalise and update it a bit.

Hope this info helps    Paul

Cheers - Paul

Just a thought, depending on what sort of Boat, but the issue with carpeted vertical surface can be mould if the boat is left for long periods unattended.  The advantage of Flotex was that it could be scrubbed with soap and warm water or even blasted with a pressure hose.  I might be worth thinking about mounting any such cladding on thin marine ply boards and attaching them to the wood with screws and cups.  If you do have problems, you could then address them off the boat and were work needed to be done later they can be removed to safety before it commences

Your welcome, if you are going for demountable boards it's worth getting a more fabric than you need so that if anything gets badly marked you have the necessary at hand to recover.  I would avoid covering steps as these always seem to get soiled by heels and toe caps on boats just where you can see them when sitting down.
