Nautolex - Original White w/Charcoal Stripes

Postby Verboatn » Fri Jul 21, 2017 11:39 am

I work for Nautolex and recently told them about all the Marinette owners who need to replace their cockpit decks but cannot get the original version because Nautolex discontinued the pattern. They wanted to gauge the interest in re-issuing the design.

Question: Would you buy some if it was available again?

I would have, but now after redoing it in a more updated pattern with the texture I would not go back. Just my .02¢

I would have, but had to go a different route. I think you guys need to do some polling around the country. There is alot of older boats being restored right now. Just this winter I saw 3 different boats getting new flooring. The one, a Bertram, the owner spent most of the winter carefully peeling the old nautolex up, scraping all the glue off, then re glued it to the new floor. His was in good shape, but that looked like way to much work. Far easier to just put new on.

Yes, I would definitely be interested. I need to replace my aft deck soon and was contemplating trying to re-use the old white decking.

I would be interested and I think a lot of other BigM owners would be too, especially if this product were offered at a similar price to other current Nautolex offerings.

All of the other faux-teak vinyl flooring brands are too expensive!

You may wish to post your question to the facebook page too in order to get more views.
