    Default Getting Lazy

    So I was sick of cleaning my carpet that was getting matted down and dirty. The boat had snap in carpet and we would run without it alot because of convenience, the problem was that is got slippery. I had some gator grip ( http://www.wakejunky.com/ ) that I put on the swim platform 3 years ago an it held up great, so I figured why not try it on the floor. I made a template last night and got the main floor done now I just need to finish the bow. I am just waiting on some more materiel. The worst that can happen is I peal it up if I don't like it and I am out $200. Here's the pictures.

    Mark, looks good. If you have enough extra to do a swim platform let me know and I might be interested in buying it off you. Assuming you just ordered 2x 4x5 sheets?

    Ryan when I did my swim platform it took a complete sheet 4x5 and that was really close. Here is a picture of the swim platform.

    Oh wow, good to know. We have this foam crap on ours and it is terrible. It wasn't put on straight, has tons of fingernail like marks in it and is extremely slippery when wet. This might be a good winter upgrade. Definitely like the idea of getting rid of the carpeting too.

    Mark - were you able to get the floor covered with a single piece? I don't see any seams.

    My carpet is so matted you can't rake it up with a garden rake. I would be somewhat concerned about covering the floor panels but how often am I really going to get under there? Could just peel it up and restick if needed.
    Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.

    i was wondering if you removed the carpet, could you somehow "finish" the floor underneath? and then add some custom snap-in carpet or gator grip? example, somehow make it smooth and presentable as if the glass was finished across the floor

    Berg if you look close there is a seem behind the drivers seat, otherwise I was able to do it all in one piece. My floor is all one piece of fiberglass that is finished. If you have to take it out the whole back section comes out. I think that alot of the new floors are several pieces.
