In the boat manufacture industry, there are basically two types of boat flooring that are used. These two types of boat flooring are synthetic boat flooring and natural wood boat flooring. Each of the two boat flooring comes with its own advantages and disadvantages in their usage depending with the quality of materials used to manufacture them.
Natural wood boat flooring is basically made from natural wood that is commonly available from forests, processed and chopped to make a floor by joining pieces of timber. The wood undergoes a little of preservation techniques before there are fitted on the boat floor. The other type of boat flooring used which is synthetic is a more advanced type of material made from fiberglass: but made to look exactly like natural wood. This is so advanced such that many manufacturers in the recent past have preferred this type of boat flooring from its numerous advantages that it has.
Synthetic boat flooring has been made with advanced special features to have little or no maintenance cost after installation and easily workable on. Among many of its advantages, the “wood” has been made to withstand numerous conditions while it has been fitted on the boat. Apart from its natural color that many people confuse it to a polished natural wood; the floor is able to withstand many other conditions while installed on the boat. As it is well known that a boat operates on waters, one will want to choose a boat floor type that incase water sprinkles on the floor, they will have a safe walking and working surface. For this reason; this synthetic boat floor type has been specially made with an anti-skid features. This means that no mater how wet the boat floor surface is, the sailor cannot slide and fall due to the wet surface.
The other type of boat flooring; natural wood flooring cannot be ruled out since it has its own advantages though the floor does not have this anti skid feature like the synthetic boat floor. This means that if the boat floor happens to be wet, the sailor can easily skid and fall which can be so hazardous since it can cause injuries to the sailor. This natural boat flooring since it is made from natural wood and in some cases painted to make it look beautiful, it is not a so reliable surface if the surface is wet. In times of rains at the shore, the sailor has to be very careful while walking on this floor since they can easily fall. This means that the sailor at all times has to maintain the floor in a dry condition which in some cases it is not practical since the boat works in marine surfaces.
This means that synthetic boat floor is a more reliable floor type because the sailor will always sail on the boat without the anxiety of falling even if the boat floor is wet making his sailing a worthwhile experience and very dependable unlike a boat with a natural floor type where they will have to maintain the boat floor at dry conditions or else be very careful while working and walking on the floor not to fall if the floor happens to be wet.
