  • older 210's with glued down carpet

    about the only detail i'm not exceedingly happy with on my vintage 210 is the glued in carpet. my carpet is in really good shape but i know that year over year its wearing down, getting dirtier, etc. since me pulling out everything in the boat one day and redoing it entirely is an option i'd rather avoid, iv'e been thinking over some other ideas ... has anyone ever made a template and cut out some high grade carpet to put in their boat, on top of their factory carpet? would basically be like a rug to protect the base carpet, and could sew an edge on it to keep it from coming apart.

    seems easy enough to do, just curious if it had been done before? also wondered if it might trap moisture under it or cause some other issue? thoughts?

    Here's an option...

    Remove old carpet, gelcoat the floor, and install SeaDek!

      lol, he's got jokes! i do recall a thread where a guy did that i think. needless to say, a bit more labor intensive than i would be interested in.

        I think the overlayed carpet would end up moving around and you'll be constantly moving it back into place so your guests don't trip over it. Think about a throw rug over your carpets in your home. Same thing - each time someone walks on the carpet the throw rug moves. In addition now you would have two layers of wet carpet to deal with. Your base layer would not dry out unless you pulled back the top layer after being on the water.

        I like Jeff's idea, but the costs would certainly be higher. The upside would be an interior floor that is easy to take care of. The other option would be to remove the old carpet, gelcoat the floor and have some carpets made that you could snap in and snap out - thinking along the lines of the SV211 or 2xx Crossover series (as well as others). This would give you the best of both worlds; carpet for those times when you are just cruising and a gelcoat floor for the times you are boarding and skiing. No worries getting the gelcoat wet as it drys quick.

          i envision having a piece cut out that is the exact dimensions of the floor, so no where for it to slide. also, would use heavy duty weight carpet which i dont think would slide much.

            Someone (on here I think) cut out that foam stuff that goes together on the floor like puzzle pieces in the shape of the interior. Easy to remove. That said, the seat bottom to floor distance is already pretty short in these boats.

              We just got new carpet overlayed over old carpet with a new colour black on our 2004 210. It's been 2 year now has worked real well, not moved at all. Just with black is very hard keep clean.

                Is it something u can remove when u need to? Also, is it just one big piece of carpet?

                  Can't imagine that being very visually appealing, but its an idea.

                    The pics of it looked better than you would think, but I never saw it in person.

                      redoing it entirely is an option i'd rather avoid
                      The only way you're going to avoid that is to sell the boat before it wears out. There's no way to keep that wear from happening. Mine lasted 13 years but eventually got so bad I had to replace it.

                      It's not a horrible job. Do searches here on carpet replacement and you'll find it.

                        At the risk of hijacking the thread, remember not-too-long-ago when the "cheap" boats had the gelcoat floor? The high-end boats had carpet? Hmmm.

                        Ok - back to the thread. Anyone have an estimate how much it would cost to gel coat the floor of an '05 226?

                          yeah, i scoffed at this notion when I first considered it. but iv'e since been curious as to what it might cost to have a pro gel the floor from the motor forward? then of course you'd have the cost of the sea dek ...

                            When I put SeaDek in my 1999 SAN, a local shop quoted me $400-$500 to gel the entire floor from bow to lockers. But it was that low because I had already prepped it all and they only had to apply the gel. The only reason I didn't do it was because I needed to coat other surfaces as well that could not be gel coated and I wanted it all to match.

                            Cost of SeaDek itself for areas I did is right around $1200. But you have a different floor pattern, so you'll have to create your own pattern, and it could be cheaper if you don't cover as many areas. It's not hard to make the pattern but you have to remove the carpet first and also calculate for the gaps between pieces created by the missing carpet. But because you have to remove the carpet to make an accurate pattern, you pretty much have to commit to replacing it when you commit to making an accurate pattern--if that makes sense.

                              I would think that laying carpet over old carpet would just retrain more moisture and contribute to mold/mildew.... Maybe I', way off...
