How much to get snap-in carpet replacement?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone got a quote on getting replacement snap in carpeting? I have spent a lot of time keeping my carpets clean but ... I was in a brand new boat the other day and its carpet is so much nicer than mine, I was considering just getting new carpet at end of season if its not too pricey.

I'm curious to hear this answer. PKH, have you tried taking the mat out and renting a steam cleaner or taking carpet cleaner and a pressure washer to it?

Do the aqua fushion snap out mats hold up better? Do they look and feel nice?

I haven't tried steam cleaning but I have done everything else... pressure wash, stiff brush, wet vac, air compressor...

Its looking pretty good and its clean, but the carpet definitely is not as good as new. The rest of my boat is like brand new even after 270 hours so I'd love the carpet to look new, especially since I am looking to sell soon.

Wow! Someone is making a lot of money. One of the features drawing me to a new boat is snap out carpet so I can keep the boat looking new over the years. My carpet is clean, but matted down and I can't get it to raise again. Perhaps the Aqua Fusion is the better route for keeping its appearance over the long haul. Does anyone on here have experience with the aqua fusion mat? Any downsides, other than you don't get the WS logo in the middle?

Yikes! I definitely wouldn't spend that much... though as I recall the WS logo was an upgrade so maybe regular carpet ain't as bad? I was hoping to spend half that much at the most.

Carpet binding ain't cheap.... And if it has that rubberized backing on it, I bet that drives the price up even more.

Hard to believe 1 yr old carpet can be that dirty. What are you guys doin in that boat?!

It sounds like a lot with 270 hours. Sold my 2012 with 35 hours.

Ha, ya exactly... its my first year with my own wake boat and I have what you would call a "flexible schedule" so we have been getting a ton of boat time in this year!

The carpet is still in pretty good shape just not new. The rest of the boat looks the same as the day we bought it.
