Default Carpet

Ordered Marine Carp[et for to pontoon. Its rubber backed. I assume I don't glue it but do I stretch it and tack it?

Are you selling it or installing it? I'm trying to figure out why you posted it in the classifieds

Glue it. That will be 5 dollars for that advice since this is classifieds.

Greg,

The rubber back stuff is hard to work with in bass boats but for your application it should be fine. Be sure its a very warm dry day when you glue it otherwise you will have problems with it not sticking. Use indoor/outdoor carpet glue from Home Depot or Lowes or maybe the lumber place there in Lakeport will have it as well. You can also use contact cement but I have found for some reason that it is not best on the rubber back stuff.

Also, be sure you change blades every couple cuts. I know it seems like alot but they will dull fast and you will start getting crappy edges.


Good Luck

GW
