Installing Snap In Carpet

Anyone pull out their carpet and upgrade to snap in?

Considering doing this at some point on my 2001 209.

DO

I've considered it. However, what are you going to do up around the gunwales? If you look at the newer boats, they are glassed differently to allow for a better look with the snap-in carpet.

I would leave the carpet as is and just do the floor.

We have a boat with it - quite nice - although it is a HEAVY roll of carpet to move around.

I pondered snap in carpet last year. I had a hard time finding the carpet to do it myself as from what I remember is different than the marine carpet. One company had a kit where you sent in a template then they made the carpet for you. It all turned out to be a little too expensive. I just bought some high quality marine carpet and glue and did it myself. Looks great. Hopefully it will last another 17 years like the original...

Gotta find a good local upholsterer - they have better pricing on the stuff.

cmarty123 - I think you'll find stuff like that is easier to find on Ogden Ave the closer you get to Lawndale... which is the last place you want to be towing/leaving a boat.

Thanks for the advice. We've been in Chicago for 1 year and have a long way to go to figure this place out.

I had snap in carpet installed on top of the old carpet in my old MC. Best purchase I made for my Maristar.

In Chicago, try up around Chain O Lakes area. I see them all the time if you need a cover I have a great company that made me a custom one last year, vents, ratchet strap, snaps all the way around.
