My boat has painted plywood floors under the wall to wall carpet. There is a thick felt pad under every bit of carpet. Why? Very comfortable to walk on in bare feet and provides additional sound insulation.

We have a teak and holly sole. There are 2 recliners the would slide around on the wood decks so we bought an area rug that they sit on so they donít slide. We put a nonskid pad under the rug. Has not left any residue on the deck and they donít slide around.

Found some wool looking recycled padding that I may try under the non moving pieces. Will probably bite the bullet for some thin wool with natural rubber for the piece that needs no slide.

My boat has beautiful wooden floors but hardly ever see them unless lifting rugs to access below floor for engine compartment and bilge. Frequently use a "hip thrust" to move rugs back into position as the rugs move because of foot traffic.

No skid rug pad

I have been in the carpet business for 40 years and would use nothing but teebaud. Google it for availability in your area. Best and safest no slip underlayment on the market.

Gatehopper,
I have floor paint on my plywood floors and canít see what all the carpet fuss is about. I like the green color of the floor paint. Floor paint is non-marine latex. Because itís floor paint it wears like iron.

The green looks good Eric. Paint is much easier to colour coordinate than carpet.

I went to the next level. I laid my old house carpet down over my painted floors. Screwed in place to stop any movement. It's not looking very pretty since I did the engine repower job without covering it properly; but it still reduces the sound level and is non-slip.

I couldn't imagine having loose carpet on polished floors on a boat that left the dock.

I have used Soundown under carpet insulation and am very happy with it. Seems ok protection the floor as long as you clean and dry the floor before putting it down. Our carpet is wall to wall but loose fit and it doesnt slide on the Soundown. It comes in 54Ē wide rolls.

Regards

Indoor outdoor carpet

Anyone use I-O carpet over the fiberglass in their cockpit area? It's (obviously) supposed to be able to be used outside but after one of our infrequent rains here in San Diego, it seemed it stayed pretty wet even several days later.

I have a "porch and patio" rated carpet outside and it's awesome. Not only do they come in decent colors and patterns, but it drys very quickly and after 4 seasons in the sun it hasn't faded.

Do not, repeat with emphasis, DO NOT glue down the underpad, or you will be cursed as the ďPO From Hell by a future owner...

That looks very much like a Sue Coleman wildlife and traditional art painting transformed into a carpet.

I went this route and have been considering carpet again. I have a vacuum on the boat and find that easier than sweeping.

My engine is also in the saloon so it helps keep the noise down.


Wife doesn't like the look so it'll be a cold day in hell that I go back. I'm using seadek knockoff and while it looks/feels good the channels grab every piece of dirt and trap it.. Gotta go. I need a long/narrow rug/runner that doesn't need to be tucked into the couch legs but i've been unable to find the right size(probably have to get it made).

If it looks wonky its because I did just about zero prep.



All that being said this stuff is cheap, foam and very nonskid.. Would make a great underlayment for carpet. $150 did my whole interior.

Carpet has some advantages. It is warmer on bare feet in the winter, acts as an additional sound shield, increases insulation.
