Boat carpet

Postby FlippinDbombs » Fri Apr 20, 2018 4:59 pm

I have a new appreciation for guys that lay boat carpet when I first got a estimate of 1400 bucks I thought that was the craziest thing ever , after laying carpet and getting covered in glue I salute you if you lay carpet for a living . This is my 88 ranger 393V built the casting deck up with aluminum plate and built in two hatches and a rod locker that holds 24 8 foot rods using ABS pipe . Now I just have to strip and carpet the back deck I might make it out on the water by next years spawn at this rate .

This is the when I decked it out of aluminum sheet and cut out all the bad glass areas it is a 30 year old boat I was worried it was going to be bow heavy but the glass I cut out versus the aluminum I put in was only 100 pounds different when I drove it through the scales after I rebuilt the deck . I wanted a new ranger but my better half wouldn’t let me spend 65k on a boat so I gave her a face lift .

Really nice work, guessing you're a tradesman of some type. If you replace the jockey box let us know where you found an outlet, I sure can't

I fabbed it up with a sheet metal brake from harbor freight and welded it up

Nice Work. Looks Great.

My 97 Viper is probably due, and since I've had only a little experience with glue all over the hands I already know I would like someone else to do it for me! Hopefully where ever I get it done does as nice of a prep and finish job as you have done.

After doing the whole boat it’s really not that hard at all it’s just taking the time to prep I would do it again now I just need a new fortrex and I’m on the water

I paid $900 to some dude in Walnut Creek over 20 years ago to re-carpet a 1984 16' Bayliner bass boat. The cost of the carpet alone was $200, so i didn't mind paying $700 for the labor. I respect your desire and ability to do the job yourself but based on the fact your boat is three full feet longer than mine was and over 20 years later, $1400 sounds like a smokin deal on today's standards. You did nice looking work on your boat.
