Lund's snap in carpet

6 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anybody has the snap in carpet in their boat and what they think about it. Any comments would be great.
Thanks

I have it in my 2003 1700 Fisherman. It is the best. I love the fact the when I go out in the suspect weather or get it full of fish slime and blood I can snap it out and rinse it off. The one negative is I have to unsnap a couple to get to my 24 volt batteries located under it and in the middle of the boat.

Now that I have it I wouldn't trade it for the world.

Willy14,
Have you fished without the carpet in? Just wondering if the floor is slippery or not.
Thats the same boat I'm looking at. Did you get a pretty good deal on the Price?

Thanks

I have not fished with it out. The floor does seem to have grip to it though when it is wet.
I love the boat. I know I got a good deal on it. I bought it at the first boat show at the Minneapolis Convention center. I had done a lot of research (1 year prior)and knew the options and upgrades that I wanted to negotiate on. I have been doing the comparison shopping thing since I purchased and haven't found anybody come close to the price yet.

The vinyl flooring is skip-resistant. It has a fake carpet pattern built into it, a pattern that serves as skid proofing.

My buddy has it on his new Pro-V and another on his new Explorer, they love it.

We will have a few sumo cats on it in Canada this coming week, in the new Pro-V. So I will give you some feedback on how it performers after we slime it up.

If a ton or so of sumo cats flopping around on it will not slop it up, nothing will. Not even that slob bother-in-law. wink.gif

Eh Kevin, that snap-in carpet system may be a great option in the new River-Pro? Just in case us Cat-Guys want to impress that special gall, on a date, or somthing.

    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
