    Default New Carpet

    Well I guess they changed the type of carpet they put in our boats in 07. I understand why. No matter what I did I just couldnt keep the carpet looking clean and it had totally flattened out. The stuff they're using now is WAY better and a bit differant color but I think it looks a thousand times better. Theres a few more pics of the prosess in my profile under upgrades.

    I did not realize the whole floor comes out like that. I wonder if it's the same in my Launch 20SSV...the carpet is pretty worn in it.

    The new looks great!

    Where did you get the new carpet? And how much did it run?

    i don't believe it does. look at the way the carpet is ran under the supports for the lounge seating.. you can see the floor pieces that are removable from the seams in the floor. I think we are stuck ripping out the old stuff up to the edges and laying in new around, but leaving the stuff under the seating or ripping out the entire top of the boat..

    looks nice...

    I had to order it through the dealer. It was like $22 a square yard I think? I have the reciept at home, i'll check and make sure. It cost me like $150 to do the floor and have enough left over to do my sub box and the bottom of the back seat that comes out. If you give them your hull numbers they can tell you what carpet you need.

    Nice work! I really wish I could pull the whole floor like that in my boat.

    The old carpet had staples on the underside were it folded over and was just glued on the top. I pulled the old off (came off real easy) and all that was left was glue. Used a paint brush to spread Contact Cement over the old glue and on the back of the new carpet. Let set till tacky, installed carpet and then stapled on the back side a couple hours later after it was dry.

    Heres a pic of how I traced out the new carpet. Oh and I used the old carpet as a template to cut the hole for the seat base. Hope that helps.
