    I noticed mine last time out looks like it belongs in a 20 year old boat (or 20 year old's boat). I think I'm gonna pressure wash it next time I get home early.

    Default Re: Carpet cleaning.

    I just take whole floor up.. seat and all threw it in my truck box and went to the car wash..... I hand scrubbed in oxy clean let it sit then hosed the hell out of it at the car wash... it works well for keeping it clean but made no difference on keeping it fluffy. .. mine is flat as a pancake...

    Any other tips and tricks? My '13 has the snap out style carpet from syntec. Their website just says use household detergent... that's pretty vague... I'm sure some are better than others and some might even cause damage. I could see heavy detergent and power washing pulling dye from the fibers as well...

    I found my boat in 2010, it had 30 hours on it and the guy said he had taken it out 5 times. The Carpet was already flat and looked Old. Ive used 3 or 4 different carpet cleaners. It's clean but nothing restores the nap. Now the adhesive is letting go and the carpet just rolls down from the top of the walls. Ive used a double sided carpet tape, but it's not heavy enough so I just push it back up when it rolls down.
    I did ride in an Epic 23V last week and it has like the Sea Deck Material through out and says you can just rinse it out and go!! I bet that is the future solution!

    I use a carpet cleaner with cold water once or twice a year, usually with very little detergent if any at all. I have found simple green helps with spots. In between I shop vac then use a rubber horse brush to bring the nap back. It' doesn't look brand new anymore but it looks pretty good. Yes, a horse grooming brush.

    I just make a weak solution of LA's Totally Awesome Cleaner and spread it around with a brush, and then rinse off, works good.
