Carpet a boat buddy?

Anyone ever carpet a boat buddy with bunker carpet? What is the best adhesive? ... I am getting scratches from mine.

Yes. I used a carpet glue from the local hardware store. Been on for two years now. Ramp-n-clamp was a failure and disappointment so the carpeted BB is the solution for me. Good luck. Also, use a piece of butcher paper or similar to make the template for cutting the carpet. It is a little tricky without a template.

Here is what I did a few years ago. It held up well. I won a ramp-n-clamp at buckeye bash last fall and switched. Up until that time, the boat buddy worked great. The ramp-n-clamp marked my boat last time I loaded. If it does it again, I might go back to this.

Actually I think it is that thread that inspired me to carpet mine back when.

I used the spray adhesive on mine, then used an exact-o knife to trim it. That way I had total coverage and clean edges.

Definitely go with multiple pieces of carpet versus one. 3M 77 on mine.

Eventually went back to a bow roller.

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.
