Carpet glue

I've got a number of places where my carpet is sagging, coming away from the fiberglass - in the lockers, under the seats, etc.

What kind of glue/adhesive should I use to get this stuff to stick?

I used this when I recarpeted my boat for some of the edges. Worked great, just make sure to follow the instructions and spray both pieces, let set for a few minutes then press together.

Super 90 works well. But I have had it let loose of carpet over time. I found another brand at Lowes that said it was heat and water resistant I tried the other day. Hoping to get a little more life out of it. They were out of the spray contact cement. My local dealer swears by contact cement for carpet.

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 like your statement

I have an 84 S&S looking for advice on an adhesive to adhere wood, styrofoam,and PVC. I am repairing a section of my rear seat where ants ate away a chunk of styrofoam, then adding 1/2" PVC board under the entire seat and attaching with the adhesive. any ideas? Thanks in advance

I built a seat once. I had glue that was eating up my styrofoam. I wrapped the styrofoam in duck tape and used the same glue. Finding a glue that didn't eat styrofoam was an option, I suppose. But the duck tape held up perfectly.
