It's there to be enjoyed. Carpet will be a dark charcoal Marine Grade with the same style as the beige planked/striped one pictured below.

I believe Super-Krete product's many, many levels of "interactive-mixes" and their extreme durability/usefulness may become your choice for both marine and land-based projects.

Heya Art
That stuff sounds very similar to a product I have used when renovating houses over here. Below link FYI

http://www.lanko.com.au/lanko/images...ler%20v1.2.pdf

I wouldn't use this on a boat mate. Too much flexing and it will just crack. Also being self levelling, it will take the fall off my floors lol

That's for the suggestion tho mate!

I suggest reading/looking on into website. Can be mix-designed to be flexible and not self leveling. At 1/16 to 1/8 inch think tough as nails. Surface finish as preference dictates, and depending on tool-types utilized. It all depends on how items are mixed. Wide choice of internal colors and sprayed or brushed color additives that become topically in-grained deeply into its surface strata after installation.

If you're considering something squishy and stick-on, you might also consider Seadek.com. I did my swim platform with the fake teak stuff about a year ago, and it's holding up well.

I do like that carpet you had picked out though.

Hope it's not squishy mate. Was thinking it was like a thin rubber/vinyl but yeh I think you may be right. It's probably more like a soft foam. Not what I want either.

Plenty of time to work out a finish that suits my needs and won't look tacky.

I've got "cut to fit" snap on carpet on my deck and love it. Easy on the footsies, doesn't cook you on a sunny day, I can and do just hose it off. And, if I want/need to, it's easily removable and replaceable.

Hi mate. Snap on sounds like a great idea. I was going to trowel on glue and stick it down but some s/steel snaps in the corners would possibly do the job. How far apart are the snap fittings mate?

Matt,
One of my previous boats had a snap in carpet. Binded and was nice on the feet. The snaps were around the edges about ever 2-3 feet. After a few years the carpet started to shrink a bit making it hard to stretch to the snaps. But if yours is gonna be exposed year round, plan on replacing ever couple of years anyway. Being able to remove makes cleaning and drying very easy, both the carpet and the deck. Don't be surprised if you see some fading when you remove the carpet.

On the longest stretches, snaps are roughly 2.5 feet apart. Then they're on the corners of every hatch, cut-out, etc. Here are some pics. Hope this helps. The carpet is easy to remove if you have to get to the deck below...kind of a pia to put back on because it's tight, but that is a worthwhile pia in my opinion.

Truly Gods country mate, I have worked just about everywhere in Australia and many many places overseas also and I just love Tassie.

A couple of pics of the carpet put in without edging at this stage.

I have some snap down carpet in my cockpit as well. It's pretty tired and needs to be replaced, just haven't gotten around to it yet. (Saying that in this thread makes me feel particularly useless, by the way...)

I'd definitely snap it down rather than glue it if I were in your shoes.

Thanks for the pics and feedback mate. If I get to tas I'll give you a heads up and we'll catch up for a frothy :-) likewise if you're over this way too!

Thanks again for your input

I'm liking the sound of this carpet snap clips more and more. I think what I'll do is mark out a nice segmented pattern, high gloss spray a border and dividing strips, then tape up the gloss paint then roll on the Kiwi grip non-slip then put down removable trimmed carpet with snap hooks.

If I ever (God forbid) need to sell AXE then at least I won't lose points on having fixed carpet and off the carpet turns to sh*t then I'll still have a shiny deck.

I spoke to a woman from the rubber flooring shop and she said it's a very hot product so I'll need to wear shoes because it burns! Which I though hmmm still interested then I saw the price. Now I'm not interested lol

Felt the same way 3-4ish years ago when I saw a brand new Grand Banks Heritage at the sales dock. Heard the price and decided I couldn't afford the swim platform.

You can buy a simple snap kit and stainless snaps from most marine places or leather shops but you need a good solid base to bend the tops over, and a punch to put the hole in the carpet. Relatively easy job though.
