Rino lineing Coating

Recommended Posts

Anyone rip out their carpet and paint it with that Rino rubber stuff? I have a MV Jon with old carpet and aluminum decking and thought maybe getting rid of the old carpet. Any thoughts?

I dont think it would be a bad idea, what does carpet really do for a guy anyways besides retain water and sweet sweet pike slime.

Along those lines, does anyone ever put that roll on stuff, similar to Rhino Lining, on their trailer? I was thinking that would be a good way to go for those areas that are next to impossible to get to for washing/waxing. Reason I ask, a friend put in on his truck and he said it was pretty easy and only cost about $200.

No, but I have the vinyl, rather than carpet on mine. It seriously looks as good as when I bought the boat new, 10 years ago. Very easy to clean. Just a thought!

I've never done the roll-on stuff on a trailer but have heard that it works great for that application.

Just an fyi, Ranger makes all their own trailers and puts a similar coating on them (they call it Road Armor). It's really good stuff.

Good friend of mine put it on his trailer and boat floor of an older Nordic Crestliner. Works great. Loading the trailer is alot easier, because you are sure footed walking out on the tongue to hook up the strap to the bow hook. I don't know how many times I have seen people walking out on the tongue that may be wet from rain or waves crashing in and seeing them slip off in to the water.

Boat floor is especially nice when we are out on Lake Michigan with the boat. The floor is usually wet from waves crashing over bow or sides. When you are fighting a salmon and running all over the boat it is great not to slip. The boat used to have some type of vinyl floor that was slippery. The floor in his boat is white type of rhino lining and trailer is done entirely in black. When putting it on just make sure surfaces are clean, he had some chip off of his trailer.

Stuff works great, easy clean up in boat, just spray down floor after fishing. I still have no idea why they put carpeting in fishing boats? confused.gif

We've had alot of requests for that at the shop. Every customer we've done it for swears that they'll never go back to carpet again.

I did the role on i bought from menards and i didnt use up the whole can i used just ove half.. on a 6 foot box and i went all the way up the sides.. but even if ya used two gallons that would still not be that much weight??10-20 lbs depending on how thick you put it on?? my guess?? unless i figured wrong and the stuff weighs a lot more then I remember??

I took my tyee out this passed weekend and I was looking at my carpet and I was wishing it had the rhino lining already.. Has anyone ever replaced there floor in a Tyee or like boat,mine is an 89' how much room is between the floor and the aluminum? would it be possible to make it storage underneath?

Can't help you on the Rino Lining... in regard to the space between the floor and the hull - there's 6-10" or so of space between the floor and the hull, depending on where you're at in the hull.

And no, I wouldn't make storage out of these spaces - they're filled with the fuel tank and flotation foam, which in my book is a good thing to have grin.gif

Are you thinking of between the front deck height and the hull, or on the floor of the boat where the new rod lockers are?

Where the rod lockers are in newer boats.. I was wondering what lays beneath my floor right in the middle of my boat..from where the walkthru windshield is more or less where the opening from goin to the front to the back.If there is foam there or if its open? curiosity sunk my boat not killed the cat!.. I am wondering if i would have room for a rod locker there.

If I'm understanding you correctly you're talking about the middle of the floor, right?

If that's the case, that's very likely where you fuel tank resides. If you look closely you should see some deck screws in the floor along the edges of the center section - open it up and have a look to be sure.

In mine the tank is in the back, I can see part of it in the rear compartment when ya open it up, I wouldn't think it would go to much further forward then another foot? I would be looking 1 1/2 to 2 feet in front of that.

One other thing to conside here - you'd want to make sure that you're not on the bottom of the boat, ie - in the bilge) (so build a false floor, etc)otherwise anything in the bottom of your new storage compartment will get wet when the boat has water in it.

    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
    • I assume you burned your deck down immediately after taking these photos.
    • Never been a big fan of webspinners, but those orb weavers are cool to look at and harmless. And this is the time of year that you seem to see them.   More of a fan of Wolf and Jumping spiders myself.  
    • Cool!  Did you take a picture when you smashed it? That big som-abatch could use a 22 through it! 😘
    • Maybe that is the way they are going to move it all on-line?  
    • Found a giant lichen orbweaver with prey and a Nordmann's orbweaver hanging around our deck.
    • I guess it depends what you are looking for. I just picked up 2 pairs of jeans for close to 50% off but this was also online and not a store.
