carpet alternatives

Recommended Posts

I'm in the process on tearing my carpet out. What is everyone's thoughts on vinyl flooring ? From what I've seen it looks good. My worry is that it will be slippery when it gets wet. Anyone have any experience with it ?  Thanks

The vinyl in my crestliner is pretty good but she can get a bit slippery with a large amount of fish slime/blood. It's a trade-off and I think people sometines exaggerate how slick it is especially if it's just water which I find presents no issue. I would imagine there's many different manufacturers of vinyl out there and I'm sure they're all different tho

There is going to be a trade off as opposed to carpet.  Nautolex is the vinyl that dominates the marine market-goes down  easy and gives a professional result.

I did nautilex with the reviews that said it wasn't slippery when wet.... If you attack rods then you will be on your butt quick. I ended up putting a piece of cut carpet over the dance floor and it works out perfect. Vinyl is easy to clean and carpet removes easily.

Anyone ever use spray on bed liner stuff, I have an aluminum floor and considering this, up the gunnels, and all. I did a roll on by Grizzly in a open air Jeep that is holding up great so I think it would be fine in the boat too.

I think that spray on bedliner with an aluminum floor underneath will get boiling hot in those windless quiet summer trolling days.

Kiwi grip is what I put on my deck...you use a textured roller and you control how much traction you end up with. It is designed for boats specifically. I put the first coat on directionally with a notched trowel so it would clean a little easier.

I used it on the board my riggers are mounted to as well and its been very durable.  Tracy has quite a glow on to go with the moon and the eye!

 Light colored bedliner will work great...


So will plain old deck paint that has a bit of sand sprinkled on it.. Thats the way it was done by mariners/navy men  for hundreds of years.. let the deck paint get tacky and sprinkle some fine sand on top. Never understood carpeting in a fishing boat myself.. Rots and keeps the wood its glued to wet so it rots as well.. bob
