Anyone replaced their boat carpet. There are multiple carpet weights, 16,18,20 ounce carpets. Anyone know what comes standard in MC boats? What brand is best, etc. Does $600 sound resonable for someone to do the floor, excluding ski lockers, bow carpet, and motor box?

I had snap-in carpet installed in my Maristar last spring. I absolutely love having the ability to pull it out and clean it. I paid about $400 to have this done. I was told it would be more to have the original stuff replaced, so I would say that $600 sounds reasonable for your boat. Consider the snap-in before you pull the trigger.

Do you have any idea of the carpet weight that you installed?

2002 Waterski Mag manufacturer's profile on MasterCraft noted carpet was "once piece 40-ounce Syntec Platinum Elite" and the sales brochure for 2001 noted the colour as "cinder". I realize that this is a decade off your boat, but though it might be of use.

PM Bradamerry. He replaced his carpet in a 190 a year or so ago. As for weight, go as high as you can afford.

I'll second that! There is nothing like hopping into a boat with plush carpet! I think they go higher than 40oz too!

I figure mine was plush at some point. :)

Mine too! Amazing how quickly this type gets matted down though! My buddy has a 1999 Hallett and they used berber marine carpet in it... it has held up AMAZING! Not as nice on the feet, but seems to be more durable!

mine's being replaced right now with 20, don't know if it's standard, but its pretty "plush". I've got pics of the before's, but I won't bore you with those until it's done.. pkge deal with the whole upholstry....

The annual scrubbing doesn't hurt though. If anything, it smells really good for a few weeks.

How about clean-up on the thicker carpets, more trouble or not?

No, its pretty thick though. Here's a pic of my snap-in, please disregard the mess in the boat.

When my buddy ordered his new (other brand) boat, he got the thickest he could. After we skied it a couple times, he was sorry he did. That thick carpet would never dry out. When I replace mine, I'm going to go with the best quality short nap carpet I can get. I'm liking the berber idea.

I bought one of these packages. The carpet looks great - very plush. I have only two concerns - this doesn't come up the side so I would have two colors (ok if they agree), and the dealer told me this carpet goes OVER the existing? Seems like a nasty combo to me I think I need to get the old out. Maybe I should install snaps for easy cleaning.?
