Just yesterday I gave my opinion to someone on here that you can't go over the old carpet. Why not if you can pull it out and clean it?

Why dont they install snap out carpets like others do (most runabouts have them now) So if i have to replace the carpet at some point it will surely be a snap out carpet.

I'm trying to figure that one out, how to replace that is. The top & bottom of the hull are put together after the carpet is installed. So how do you replace it if the whole deck is sitting on it? If you cut it out then it's still going to be under the deck and if you yank it out from under then you have a gap and potential rattles.2007 Mobius LSV

Cut it. Seal it. Snap it. But you'll need a custom fit snap carpet to go in there. I like the floormat idea. Pull it out, clean it and hang it up while running the fan over the old carpet.My Mom said I'm not allowed to get wet!

I never use anything to dry the carpet, just let it dry naturally and i've never had an issue on any of my boats. Maybe it's because i don't have the humidity ya'll do in Florida?2007 Mobius LSV

I like the snap in carpet. I don't understand why so many are against it.
I had the same beef with the carpet in my 07. They sold me that this new carpet being installed in the 07's was way better and would keep it's look longer. By the end of my 1st summer it looked like any other boat carpet. If some one could create some kind of majical carpet fluffer upper, I'd be the 1st in line to buy one!

I used Stanley Steemer Carpet Cleaner. They were a little expensive, but they did a great job and I think it was worth it!

Talk about bring back a dead horse! Some of the guys on wakeworld are soaking the carpet and scrubbing with Oxy Ckean then pressure wadhing from the front to the bilge then shop vac up the rest. Sounds crazy but they do it every year.2007 Mobius LSV
