Boat Carpet or Linoleum?

Recommended Posts

I'm putting a new floor in my boat this evening and need your help! I can't find marine carpet or marine linoleum..... I looked at Cabela's yesterday and they said I need to special order it through their catelogue. Does anyone know where I can find some TODAY!?!?

P.S. The color doesn't matter to me and I don't need a large quantity.... Just for half of a 14' Fishing boat

Try other marine shops like Crystal Marine or something like that. Just a thought - good luck.

Years ago I purchased some from Alumacraft in Saint Peter and as I recall it was resonable.

Not sure if they still do that kind of thing ? Let me know what you find out.

Fleet Farm had it!!!! It looks like pretty nice stuff. It is a heavier grade marine carpet (I believe 21 oz.) and it looks great! Bonus their treated plywood was on sale also!!!!!!

Not sure about this one, but I've heard there is a big difference between regular treated plywood and marine plywood. I could be wrong here, so someone in the know let us know. Later, Paul

Plywood panels rated as EXTERIOR but not Marine, such as A-B, A-A or C-C EXTERIOR, may contain any other permissible species and contain C-grade veneer. Unless specially improved, C-grade veneer is permitted to contain knots and knotholes up to approximately 1-1/2 inches across, and the inner plies may have core gaps up to 1-inch wide.

Taken from a plywood mfg site.

On the other hand the cheaper wood having more knots and core gaps is supposed to take on the poisonous waterproofing chemicals better.

Sound like a choice between strength and water resistance is the tradeoff ?

I have heard that green treated wood will react with aluminum and cause corrosion. I think Marine grade is the only way to go, or standard with an epoxy coat on it may work well too.

With respect to plywood; do a search in this forum. There is a wealth of information on what plywood to use and where to get it from.

not sure bout this and the only reason i bring it up is cuz i thinks its great in my boat if you going to be puttin in a new floor rather than carpet or linilom what would it cost to spray the plywood woth a 1/4 in or so of fiberglass

my boat has snap in carpet in it and i took it out went with out for awhile

i'll never put it back in its the cats meow if you ask me

mine will last forever of coarse and its so easy to clean and everything looks like new crawler dirt and bedding etc etc washes right out

you know you hafta let your floor get some good sun when its carpeted and i'm not sure bout liniulim (let alone how to spell it lol) i guess i ve never saw a boat with that it or ever heard of that before

there is a guy on 371 between brainerd and little falls that repairs fiberglass actually i think he does most of skeeters warrenty work

just idea it might cost a fortune i dunno

    • If things in there were actually a bargain they might’ve moved more stuff.  I’ve picked up a couple things there but not more than 5-10% of the times I’ve visited it.   The pricing coupled with the “as is” , no returns policy kept me a bit gun shy of making it a viable source of gear.
    • At least you’re settling for three strikes and you’re out!   Tough start but at least you know now and have a chance to rebound in some way.  Hopefully you can at least get that late season hunt on the “old” property.  Always tough when the permission starts fading after working and and getting to know a good property.
    • Looks like severe heartburn to me!😄
    • As stated for the above reasons....I totally agree.  I can tell you this much, I also hunt late into the season if I am not tagged out, and I loosen my sling more so my thick gloves will slide through it and I can grip my bow.  I have always shot with one, so i can't speak to shooting without one.  I get a piece of mind having it that I can relax my grip and now worry about the bow "jumping" out of my hand,
    • Antsy?  That would be an understatement.  I got out bow hunting 1 time last year due to the job I was working at the time.  That job is history and am now working a job that will allow me to hunt as much as I used to.  Last month has been pretty much a disaster.......the land that we hunt on, first when we went in to kill the areas for the food plot, the guy running the sprayer decided it would be a good idea to put Roundup on the clover plot I put in last year.  It was thick and awesome and I could tell the deer were just hammering it.  Mostly does and fawns, couple small bucks, but hey, when the does need a man, he usually shows up.  Needless to say, I was a little upset when this happened.  Almost lost it when the guy got done spraying the plot and then drove over to me and said "I killed that plot, we should plant a clover or chicory plot there".  Just shook my head and walked away.  Strike one......then about 2 weeks ago the owner of the property informed us that we would no longer be able to bow hunt on his land.  Only muzzleloader, and that's only if they are completely tagged out by then.  STRIKE TWO........so I just planted over 200 dollars worth of seed in food plots that I may never even get to hunt over.  STRIKE THREE!!!!   So now I am in scramble mode to try and find some private land to hunt or start getting out to scout public land in hopes to find a good spot.  All i can do is make the best out of it and hopefully things work out the best.  Either way.....I'm going to up a tree somewhere and totally loving the experience of sitting in the woods with mother nature, with a huge smile on my face!!!!
    • Hey all...........thinking about pulling the trigger on a new bow for the upcoming season (I know a little late in the year, but it is what it is in my world).  Right now I am shooting an Elite GT500 which is a double cam bow.  Thinking about possibly going to a single cam instead of the double but not really sure if that is the route I want to take.  Looking for opinions from folk who shoot either and what they like don't like about the bow.  Not looking for any bow bashing, just what everyone likes and why.  Thanks!
    • I did this with a friend. I actually think it was what is called back bacon not buckboard as he cut it out of the rear loin instead of the shoulder. IMHO it tastes really good. Like a ham of sorts. If it goes over well then I'll do a batch from the shoulder and I think the extra fat content will work better.   I used a bacon mix from Walton's that I ordered.
