In this gluing infinity, luxury weaved vinyl flooring to the deck of this pontoon boat. The old deck was rotten and has been replaced with marine exterior plywood. Why invest in the old-fashioned outdoor carpet wood you can upgrade to the best luxury weaved vinyl flooring from sail rite. This is an easy project for any do-it-yourself er. We'll show you the proper steps to complete the job with excellent results. Let's get started and show you all the steps. First off we need to prepare our surface to secure the decade we use screws. We need to fill any holes or pits in the plywood decking, with an exterior speckling paste after allowing the paste or fill to dry.
It can be sanded smooth and then the surface should be cleaned. Infinity luxury woven vinyl flooring from sail rite is eight feet. Six inches wide for most pontoon decks. That width is perfect. You can simply roll the entire roll down the length of the boat from Stern to bow. We've cut the Infinity flooring, so there are a few extra inches hanging over the bow and the stern portion of this pontoon boat. We want the outside surface to be facing up on our pontoon deck. The cardboard tube that it was shipped on is placed on to the flooring, then we'll fold the fabric sack halfway and lay it down. Next, we'll be applying our glue to the decking, the manufacturer of infinity and sail rite highly suggest, using an 8390 marine and exterior adhesive.
This, too is available from sailrite. We will spread the glue on our board with 1/8 inch venom trowel, half of our luxury woven flooring is laid back, so we will apply the glue to half our decking at a time. We will allow the adhesive to develop a tack before placing the woven flooring on top. Do not allow the adhesive to dry or develop a skin before applying flooring. 1 gallon. This adhesive will cover approximately a hundred and eighty square feet that translates to about a twenty two-foot deck depending on the environment. The glue will start to dry beyond its tackiness in approximately ten to twenty five minutes, so you have approximately 10 to 25 minutes.
To do half of your deck now you can use that cardboard to or core and carefully lay out the flooring. On top of the surface you just glued, there will be inconsistencies and possible air bubbles in the flooring, so we'll need to use a device to smooth out the flooring before it. Cures completely. Using the cardboard core or tube can help to take out some of the wrinkles, but it won't take out all of them you'll notice here at the end, there are still air bubbles in the flooring. So what we'll use is our plastic cutting board? You can use something similar to this.
The edges are not sharp, but yet it's very rigid Brian starts in the center and pushes air bubbles out to the edges or to the end where it's been glued, the opposite. Half of the flooring has not yet been glued down. We want to get all the air bubbles and wrinkles out before we go and glue the other side. So we'll work, those out to the edges, sailrite's premium, cutting block has a lanyard tied to the corner, we'll cut that off and now we can use the cutting block flat up against the flooring, pushing it securely in place on top of the adhesive and working out.
