SUB FLOORS ON
NARROWBOATS & CANAL BOATS



Exactly as it says, there is a layer of flooring under the top surface flooring on a canal boat.

It's important to use good quality materials to avoid future problems.

Sub floors are laid over the cabin bilge after ballast has been placed. With the timber boards subject to changes in temperature, air flow and humidity try to use the best quality material you can.

They are usually 18mm marine grade ply to BS 1088 EN 636-2 and EN 314-2 Class 2 or above.

See our article on Materials in our Furniture Chapter.

It is good practise to ensure adequate ventilation and to cut a rear access hatch for bilge inspection.
