Fishouse floor

Recommended Posts

what do you guys have on the floor of your houses? I am finishing mine and wonder about what to put on the floor. Carpet could get real messy/ slimy with fish flopping around. Mine has bare green treated plywood now. Any suggestions?

A good couple coats of good bathroom paint or a outdoor oil based paint. Oh primer first.

Well,,, I have a comerical grade of short loop carpet. I never had any problems keeping it clean. I have an old carpet sweeper to pick up what's tracked in and the two throw rugs just get shaken every once and a while. My fishhouse came with the carpet and I've had my house for over 7 years, eight season starts NOW... The floor is a lot warmer with the carpet. Another house we have has just plywood floors, and I prefer the carpet. I'd suggest you go with the threads!!! Kaz

I just finished a floor that I used Armor Coat (ie: Tremclad, PlastiKote) paint on and used an additive in the paint that was like fine sand to provide a non-slip surface. I painted the whole floor black, hoping that it would soak up the suns rays and maybe not be as prone to freezing to the ice.

I'm just waiting for ice (theres a little on my pool smile.gif) so I can test her out.

I've used some of that "astroturf" indoor/outdoor carpet stuff... gives good grip when your boots are full of snow and stuff from going out to a tip-up, easy to clean, wears like iron, and isn't too expensive, either.

Indoor/outdoor carpet. Stay away from linoluem, it gets very slick when cold!

    • Figured I'd loop back on this with an update.  I ended up getting the Weber Spirit 3 burner.  Picked it up at Ace Hardware.  Its the same price everywhere ($449) but Ace will assemble it, deliver it, and haul away the old one for no charge.  Bought it Saturday morning had it sitting on the back patio by 3pm that same afternoon.   I ended up looking at a lot of grills including many brands of gas grills, pellet grills, and some charcoal grills.  There were some other gas grills that I liked, they looked to be made solidly from good materials and they came at a decent price.  However, they all lacked a decent warranty.  The webers use less stainless steel than some of the others and I'm not 100% sure what the china production will do to the quality and longevity of a Weber but they do come with the best warranty that I saw.  I believe grates and flavorizer bars have a 5 year warranty and everything else has a 10 year warranty.  Customer service and part availability was also a big selling point.  Weber parts look to be easily available and if you do end up having to replace the grate, flavorizer bars, and burners it will only set you back $150 which should get you many more years out of the grill.    I let my almost 3 year old son pick the color since he came with to help pick it out.  I couldn't argue with his choice of red.  It is clearly the fastest looking grill, now I just need to add a racing stripe.
