THE 62.00 WAS FOR THE CARPET, AND I TALKED TO MY UPHOLSTRY GUY AND HE SAID THAT WAS A GOOD DEAL ON THE GLUE SO I JUST ORDERED IT ONLINE. BUT YA I CAN GET YOU SOME CARPET NO PROBLEM.

Let me run out and measure my boat.  I'll even throw in enough for you to get a 12 pack of your favorite adult beverage.   ;D ;D  This is the carpet I was looking at.

Thanks anyway.  I got some samples and I just don't care for the fuzzy stuff that's in the boat and the samples were pretty much the same thing.

I thought i would add my 2.5 cents in just in case this is still being contemplated.
I have done 4 boats and it just gets easier every time.
1. Layout the carpet and cut a pattern leaving about 3" overlay on all ends. Peel it back and paint on the glue from the bucket to both the hull and the carpet backing and let it tack up. Do 1/2 the hull flooring at a time. Also, you can use the 3M (77) spray for spots that you cant get witha  brush.
2. Lay the carpet down after it tacks up from the middle to the bow, then work your way out to the sides. ****TAKE YOUR TIME BECAUSE AS YOU LAY THE CARPET DOWN IT WILL BE A BEHOTCH TO PULL BACK UP***. Do it by hand that way you are sure to get the carpet wedged into all the nooks and crannies withour wrinckles.
3. Then do the other half just as the first.

I usually do the floor and trim at the seam where the floor meets the sides. and do the sides seperately. I found that if i do the floor and try to wrap it up the sides it creates an air gap and eventually it will wrinkle and peel up.

Doing it like this I was able to re-carpet a 19' Bahner for about a C-note. And it looks just as good if not better than anyother one i have seen.

I'm watching close because I need to do mine this winter when I get mine painted. I helped my dad do our boat growing up and I remember using an outdoor loop carpet and some 3M spray glue. But I don't remember much else. And I'm also wondering how that will hold up down here with all the heat.
DO NOT USE!!!!!!!!

no spray. roll the sh!t out of it. ANd take your time. don't spend both side. it is missy and to much glue. The glue can bleed through. Boat's are a plain is the ass. Plus, and most important (the floor must be very very clean) also let the glue dry.

I will help, but you have to bring the boat to me ;D 

p.s. I don't do this for a live >:D (boat) I've just done 20 or 30 of them

Taco'd "a person or people that show up with one lake lice and a family of 50 and cram 3 people at a time on it with no disregard to boating rules or ethics. Usualy crap in toilets and throw shit paper in trash cans. Hang out at the boat ramp like its a swimming hole. Have zero insurance on anything they own and dont give two shits less about your property."

I start from back to front, then a little side to side to make sure I get it off the taint, I mean that's how I do it if I wipe at all.

I don't know how much carpet you need to do, but I like to use 3M #90 high strength trim adhesive which is a fan spray type glue and have had very positive results, just can't use too much and evenly coat both surfaces and let the air dry for a few minutes, the biggest problem is you only get one shot at it, its a little like contact cement,the stuff in the bucket seems like you would get more working time?

My boats are all pretty small, did a bass boat once, don't think I had a piece of carpet bigger than a T-shirt and it took forever :o :o

Last year I spent 3 days scraping "stuff" off of the floor of my boat after removing the old carpeting :banghead:

I would rather make run good than do interior, I don't have the artistic ability. :'(

Thanks for the tips!
