questions about re doing a lund

7 posts in this topic

Hi, I have a few questions about re doing a boat, it is a lund 1750 I think, and the sides got all scratched up from a windstorm rubbing it against a sharp dock corner. It has also taken a beating from rocks thrown from gravel roads and other scratches and what not. This may sound like a dumb question, but please take me seriously. Would it work to put the truck bed liner on the upper sides of the boat, the parts that don't actually ride in the water, but is prone to dock rash. I don't think it would look too bad, I've seen lots of pictures of trucks with this on their rockers and it looks pretty good. I am also wondering about the interior/flooring. What are the pro's/cons for Carpet vs. bedliner on the floor. The boat has carpet in it now, but I am thinking about redoing it. Anyone have firsthand experience with this that they can give me suggestions? thanks

I can't speak from experience on putting spray-on bedliner on the outside of the boat but I will say that if you do decide to use it inside the boat....choose a lighter color. It could get mighty toasty on the floor during the summer. When I decide to redo the carpet on my boat I might make the switch to something other than carpet. I like the idea of easily spraying down the deck with water if things get messy.

Dot Deco vinyl on inside for flooring, that is my vote and I used it on a pontoon and 16' boat. Works fantastic!

For outside, I would just paint it. PRep it well, then paint using sprayer/air compressor. Easy, fun and looks great. Just remember paint overspray gets everywhere, so tape well and do it on calm day smile Otherwise see how much a paint shop would charge to do it. Might surprise you.

The only thing about the Bed liner is that it can be a bit bumpy which could catch on your feet if you don't pick them up and trip someone, and useing the boat in bare feet, would be unbareable! grin

Well 3300 is a little much for a paint job, so we are doing it ourselves. We have a spray gun and I know how to paint, just getting other opinions, It would be kinda hard on the bare feet, but some are less gritty so not sure.

With a decent amount of bedliner you will be adding quite a bit of weight so I'm not sure that is the best option. Most guys seem to like the marine vinyl...at least that is what a lot of guys do instead of putting in new carpet, they use the marine vinyl instead

    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
