View Full Version : floor

just purchased boat last week and wondering if there is a way i can make the two access panels less noticable in the floor. The photo accurately represents the situation and i would like to see both of these blend in a bit more. i am wondering if they are just tightened to much or if that is typical of a 2000 Maristar?

Try shimming it with a piece of aluminum.

This is the floor in my 2004. The front access cover is a little low (has not been an issue and I have not tried to shim it) and the rear cover is mostly flush.

I just checked mine and all panels are recessed about a 1/16th of an inch. I'm sure you can shim to make it flush...

I put snap-in carpet in mine because the carpet was shot when I bought mine a few years ago.

snap-in carpet looks awesome. are you content with your decision?

I never thought of that with my other boats (my 07 X2 now has snap in carpet, love the whole innner liner concept) and the job to install all new carpet just looked too intense to do correctly. DPOLEN's interior looks pretty damm good to me. Great idea. I really like it.

are you content with your decision?

Absolutely. It's probably the best thing we've done for our boat. Paid less than $500 for it.

do you still use your ski locker?

Yes. Just have to lift the carpet up to access the locker.
