Recommended Posts

Anybody changed our their snap-out carpet for Seadeck in a 2016-2017?  Just curious how easily this can be done.  Thanks.

Ugg - why?

It would be easy though, since if you have snap out then you have a finished floor.

Its is not an overly difficult job, the most difficult part is sanding the ridges out of your deck flooring so your adhesive backed sea deck has something to hold onto.

Ridges?  You mean the diamond texture that boats with snapout carpet have?

Then I would figure out a way to fill it rather than sand the gelcoat off and exposing fiberglass to all the moisture that a floor gets.

You don't need to sand it all off, just make it smooth. Just the raised areas. Flling would work as well.

I put it down right on top of the diamond texture in 2015. No issues.

I had the snap in carpet pulled (stored in attic) with Gatorstep prior to delivery.  Dealer did the install.  As far as I know they did nothing but install over a clean floor.  At least that is what it looks like.  No issues.

Cause snap in carpet feels great, I love how it feels, nightmare to clean and maintenance

The diaper back soaks up beer as fibers let it roll through , took vinigar to take out smell 

live in my humidity , leave that carpet down wet on Saturday , leave it covered Sunday in driveway and mildew starts before Monday is done if it didn’t get removed on Sunday and cleaned thr Boat Monday

I just replaced my carpet with Deckadence.  Totally recommend that over anything else.

I was with Jeep till you reminded me what it's like in swamp land.  I see your reasoning, but man the sea deck gets hot!  Seems you gotta dump water all over the floor to not burn your feet anyway.

I’m hoping I don’t have a problem with the gator step from group buy and heat, the bare diamond finished floor is always cool, bimini up or  down

my swim step is intolerable unless wet

i actually prefer bare floor but wife doesn’t and I was scared on missing out on group buy

Thanks for the replies.  I like the simplicity of the seadeck over carpet.  I agree carpet feels great but just get tired of the cleaning and maintenance.

Deckadence is a great option as well.
