    Default Floor covering project

    A buddy of mine recently added a deckadence floor covering to his boat and it is beautiful. I was toying with the idea of ordering the same thing for my boat but started looking around for other options. I started looking for spaghetti mat like the mat under my playpen ballast bag from the factory.

    After a few Google and Amazon searches miners moss started showing up in the results. If you are not familiar with miners moss it is the open weave PVC mat used by miners to catch fine gold. I found a source (utopia tools) that had a grey color to match my boat and ordered 2 rolls of 3'x5'. Luckily the main cabin area in my XLV is exactly 3' so this size worked well. I also ordered Goop marine UV stable adhesive in clear to glue the seams where I would have to piece sections together.

    I made a template with paper from Lowes.

    Used template to cut material and glued seams.

    The. I dropped in the boat. Sorry for low light pics. I have to say it looks really good in the boat. Very happy with the result. I will test it out for a while and then decide if I want to remove the old carpet.

    Still a little wavy from being rolled when shipped. Should come out when the sun hits it.

    It looks great!!

    How does it feel under your feet? Looks like it might be coarse and irritating.

    And if you don't mind sharing, how much was the product?

    The material is fairly soft and squishy so it is pretty comf (at least to me). Certainly softer than the mat under my playpen ballast bag that was there from the factory.

    I paid $35 per roll. I needed 2 = $70
    Goop UV stable clear adhesive - $7
    Paper from Lowes - $9

    Total cost - $86 plus tax

    Here is a video demonstrations of Deckadence which gave me the idea of trying miners moss. The miners handles water the same way.http://youtu.be/DuNhm0wE4Kk

    Looks great. Tige does something similar on their new rigs as well. Is this stuff heavy enough to just sit in place? I've never seen it in person. I think you may want to remove the carpet for fear it will harbor water under there? Just thinking out loud. It looks nice.

    How are you doing the seams in it? Is it just set in there?

    I believe it will stay put when trailered. I'll find out soon.

    I plan to use it a few times and if I still like it I will likely pull the carpet out.

    I glued the inside edges together, let it dry, and then put some more glue on the bottom seam.

    Here is what Deckadence recommends. I found the video after I glued mine together.
