Its always a pain in the a** to clean my floor. Any tips from anyone? Wiping it with a cloth and some multi-purpose is what I have been doing but I wouldn't say it does a "great" job. I guess I could just put the hose to it and wash it carefully?

Crap someone just told me about what to use on mine to make it look brand new. I think it was Horse Powers friend. I'll ask him.

Anyway. TTT

What is the surface like? A nonskid?

Nonskid fiberglass floor... I've seen such a thing as "nonskid fiberglass cleaner" but I've never tried it.

I think you'd be fine with a hose, there are drains in the back of the floor and hoses that go to the bottom of the bilge, you could pump out or pull the plug and let it drain.

I keep mine covered with a nice carpet and don't allow shoes.

Try a magic eraser!
I think I will once I get it nice and clean to get rid of any scuff marks etc. I still can't believe how well that thing works! I should be in a Mr. Clean commercial or something. :star:

As for the floor, if I carefully use the hose it should drain out ok as kjo said. I might get some carpet made for it too.

Use Soft Scrub bathroom cleaner and a brush. I used it on the floor off my boat and it looked brand new. The non slip always looked dirty even though I cleaned it, but now it's bright white. The one with bleach will f up your cloths so watch out.

Finally clean. Just got the hose out and used some spray nine and elbow grease. Came up beauty. Here's a couple of pics.

Spray Nine elbow grease and water worked good for cockpit but the swim platform didn't work. Might try the magic earaser on that. If not will go with a non skid cleaner.

I paid about $200 for mine, came out perfect. I used matworks.com but I suspect you could do something locally and have it come out just as nice.

floor looks good!

The past owner must have had carpet for it as there are buttons on the floor. Did they come with carpet new?

I have been told that the carpet was an option that 90% came with but I can not confirm.

I used a local marine supply store and bought raw materials. Took the finish cut carpet to an upholsterer and had them put the edging on it.
The cost was 90% of a real nice one from "Matworks" :rolleyes:

I don't think it was worth the hassle of making It myself.

I will buy one from Matworks next time.

If you don't mind me asking, what did you spend ballpark?
