I used indoor/outdoor dark green stuff to match boat. Its like carpet you would use on speaker boxes.  I used boat last year with bare fiberglass floor and man carpet sure helps.

I used the HD stuff cause I heard here it was good and 12.00 is much easier to spend than 35.00 for glue from west marine

The HD glue never really cured up for me  :-\ and i dont think the HD stuff is water proof. yha the price is good, but the west marine glue IS water proof and cured up over night into a hard shell.
Even though mine was only a temporary fix its been wet many times and carpet hasnt moved AT ALL.
Not to say the HD stuff isnt good ...it just didnt work for me .

Have used the HD and have removed it as well...great stuff for the price. Just don't over lay it(real thick). A nice clean coat will dry enough for years of use. Getting ready to install more on mine as I just pulled everything out off my hull for new motor, pump, tank and sub floor....

I have noticed i got a couple thick spots on the sides where i touched it by accident and they are still a little tacky yet but when it gets to 120 degrees outside it should dry good.

Yeah I have everything out of the boat at the moment and trying to decide which carpet to go with. Plus I damaged one of the side trailer covers last outing. Now when you guys all replaced your carpet did you use any seams or just one big piece?

Yeah, the current carpet had a seam right at the foot pedal and they were it started coming apart. That's why I was thinking one piece and not have I worry about it. But that means a lot of extra pieces left over. And more cost.

Hopefully someone else is home this weekend to answer my question.
I know the thread talks about HD and WestMarine adhesive but what are the names of the brands that worked well?
Thanks

I don't recall the name of the glue/adhesive but I used HD indoor outdoor waterproof adhesive. When I get home I will look at the name of it. It was like 13.00 for a gallon and it was more than plenty and worked good. No complaints here just don't put on thick or it might bleed threw carpet

use a trowel (i took a plastic card and cut 1/8" notches in it) to spread it evenly.  then i took a rolling pin (you can use a paint spray can... just something smooth and round) and push the carpet down into the glue.

Thanks guys :thumbup: I picked up the Roberts brand. I re-did the carpet in my fantasy years ago and used what they had at HD and the adhesive worked great! and with the way stores change products wanted to get something comparable. I just repaired the floor on my roll bar boat. (Will have a thread covering the fix coming soon)
Thanks again
