Carpet

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?

Looks like '02's used 40-ounce carpet

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.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

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

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!
