any one know wear I can get nice marine carpet I'm looking for a bright red
I replaced the bunks on my trailer a couple of years ago. Went to carpet stores looking for indoor/outdoor carpet for the bunks. At the time I was also toying with the idea of re-carpeting the ****-pit. When I told sales people what I intended to use the carpet for, two salesmen from two different stores told me that there are several new/modern type carpet products, that are not affected much at all by water. So, it seems there are more and better choices out thereBadDog said:My neighbor sells carpet. My carpet is a lay in with no snaps. He sold me some commercial duty type carpet commonly used in lobbys and high traffic area. It was a 12 ft width and I bought enough to cut out two pieces.
6 years later the first piece still look like new. The backing has started to flake a bit but not bad. The boat stays covered and this carpet has been rained on a few times a year.
The color and texture choices were greater with a commercial carpet. I used a 1/8 smooth rubber pad under it and feel is very nice. You can spill about anything on this and it cleans right up with water. You can have a cut piece bound most anyplace. The price was very reasonable as there is often leftovers. I got mine for cheap. I think it was something like 10 bucks a yard but retail was around 35.
Totally satisfied with it. I checked out all the marine grade carpets and they were way expensive and did not have the feel or color selection. Depending upon your needs and use this may be a good option to investigate.
