    Over the last week, I completely transformed the look and feel of my boat by adding infinity flooring to the cockpit (there was nothing there before), steps, and bridge (there was old ratty carpet up there before). I had some leftover, so I did the swim platform too, although that is not attached yet. I'm still trying to work out if I'm going to glue it down, or snap it down. The steps are glued, and the cockpit and bridge are not.

    Our friend on CSR, ZZ13 (Bill), hooked me up with a great deal on a 10x20' roll of Infinity's Better Than Teak product. Using templates that needed to be homemade (the most time consuming part of the process), the outline was transferred onto the flooring. The flooring then cuts easily with a good pair of scissors. I didn't even bind it as I'm happy with the look just as it is.

    Pics coming in reply below.

    Well, there was a slight delay in my order, and Infinity being the stand-up company they are, sent me a complimentary 10x4 piece that they had lying around to get me started. I used that piece for the swim platform only. But honestly, even if they didn't send me that extra piece, I think I could have done it all with the 10x20. I still have a lot extra. I already did the floors of the heads, and may do under the dinette table next. A 10x20 roll will go a long way if you lay out the templates in a way that maximizes space.

    For the templates, I used a 9'x12' plastic sheet they were selling at my local Ace Hardware. The thickest they had was 3mil, but I think a thicker sheet would have been better. But I made do with a bunch of painters tape to hold it down and flat.

    That looks great. Assuming it is glued down? Mind if I ask what the 10' x 20' roll ran you?

    He can't tell you. I've sworn him to secrecy. It was a unique situation for a lot of reasons and the price he paid just isn't anything that can be approached again.

    Only the steps are glued down right now. I still need to figure out what to do with the platform. Permanently fasten it, or add snaps to the platform and make it removable. That is the question.

    Oh yeah, and if you're a DIY'er and are interested in doing it yourself, send Bill a PM about your needs and he can assist you with getting a roll if you so desire.

    Can you tell us what the normal price would be for a 10'x20' roll?

    That looks great, and would be happy to pay regular/retail price, if it's significantly cheaper than teak (assuming it is much cheaper).

    It varies based on the retailer. An Internet search on "infinity Luxury Woven Vinyl" will bring up some retailers with price listings.

    Thanks. You can also send a PM to ZZ13 to get a quote for your specific needs. Again, he can just supply the rolls and doesn't get involved with templates, cutting, binding, etc. I believe rolls come in 8' or 10' widths and you can get any length you want. There's also different thicknesses, so price will vary by the size, style, etc.

    That looks awesome!

    For anyone buying a big roll and you end up with extra, I would sure like to buy a four 2' x 2' squares or enough to cover the steps going into my cabin.

    So it has a rubber backing I assume, correct? You cut it with sharp scissors. What keep it from fraying over time if it is not bound?

    The entire material is PVC. The backing is made separate and the patterned layer on top is bonded to it.

    Also Quint4 (Dave) does cut to fit with binding installs (through his Canvas Medic business) and knows how to work with it better than I. He might be able to answer the fraying question through his experiences.
