Has anyone replaced their carpet, and what was involved? I have a 1991 BF200, and would like to replace the entire interior.
Thanks,
Jeff

I was thinkin about doing this a while back also and this is what I came up with with a lot of help from TT. I would try www.snapincarpet.com or www.conrinthian-marine-carpet.com. They have some pretty cool options that you can choose from. One member on here showed me these that he designed.

These links will definitely help with the carpet, but I dont know about replacing the interior.

My carpet is glued down. Were you going to change from glued down to snap in? I would love to have snap in carpets, but my gunnels are carpeted as well.

No, I already had snap-in carpet. I was just going to replace the exsisting.

I installed snap-in carpet on my maristar on top of the existing carpet...works really well. A lot cheaper than replacing everything.

how do you find it with the water that gets in the boat having 2 layers of carpet?

The original layer of carpet seldom gets soaked, the top layer absorbs most everything and dries out quickly in the sunshine. I haven't considered this to be an issue. If I had to do this over, I"m not sure if I would have done anything different, been a really nice upgrade and it's easy as heck to clean.

dpolen,
Do you have pictures you can post? Where did you get the snap-ins?.
Thanks,

Here's a link to some pictures I've got online. I had a local upholstery shop do the work, was under $500 for the project about 4-5 years ago when I bought the boat. Let me know if you have any questions, happy to help.

Last winter I pulled the floor boards out, and replaced everything that wasn't stainless steel, with stainless steel. I really enjoy the little projects, and seeing the progress. I have to say that I have been around ski boats, performance boats, and 50' cruisers my entire life and the BF200 is built better than any small boat I have seen, and most large cruisers and commercial fish boats.

The one complaint I have with the design, is the boats poor to non-existant interior floor drainage.

my understanding of the "snap-in" carpets is to protect the more traveled areas...
if the snap in carpet gets trashed, order another and snap it in, no need to take boat apart and replace carpet


oh, and ease of vacuuming/cleaning.... carpet cleans very well at the car wash


is this incorrect?

I think the 2nd and 3rd points you make are the true benefits of snap-in. In my previous boat, we had fiberglass floors with snap in carpet on top, that carpeting was a breeze to clean and was more comfortable to walk on barefoot than the hard floor.

This snap in carpet sounds like a great idea. My only concern is access to the ski locker. Does anybody have any comments about that? Thanks

That's the only part of my snap-in setup that I wish I could redo. If I had to to it again, I'd have a separate piece cut just for the ski locker. Right now, my carpet is done in 2 pieces for the entire boat, if redone...it would be definitely be 3.
