Are you using some sort of fastener to hold the eva foam down? it looks like screws in the pic? I would also like to hear your experience and any tips you can offer working with the material, I rushed carpet into my boat last year and wish i did foam.

I used screws to hold the foam down along the edges. It’s fairly easy to instal on large flat surfaces but it’s stiffer than carpet and doesn’t wrap well.

All this work and I’m done for the season. Ran it today and I have a cracked head or blown head gasket. Chocolate milk shake everywhere. I’ll pull the heads and have them tested and fixed/replaced this fall. It sucks because I’ve been busting my *** every night to get the interior useable for this weekend.
