Use a very good adhevise though try and avoid the cheep stuff frome Homebase it not up to the job.

Following a terminal hard drive crash a couple of years ago I lost a lot of pictures of my old boat 'MAEDROMA'
she is a Beaves Marine Chamargue 16.
I have replaced the cabin wall carpet in Salamis a couple of years ago. So this is how I did this one.
The trick is good quality adesive and tons of sharp Stanley knife blades, and use a hard wallpaper roller
to push the carpet onto the glued walls, oh and glue both carpet and area carpet is going on.

Reupholstery - Off with the old

On with the new + old brown carpet to replace

Comming together now

Last bit to finish up

Officially done, just the head lining to put up.

I had some thick foam in the loo in mine when I got it. It had soaked up the condensation and smelt pretty bad. The thinner backed carpet on the hull was in fine shape and was dry.

We have carpeted walls and floors on our boat and other boats .On the floor we used Flotex type carpet easy to clean as i have two big dogs .On the cabin walls and ceilings (Roof) we used the cheapest foam back ,It is only thin not a lot of foam on it either.Robin sprays with spray glue and i put it up ,It is very easy with the two of us doing it. We like the bit of foam as it acts as a bit of insulation.We have never had any problems at all with it and it does help with condensation.We have not noticed any horrid smells either. We have now done the sides of the sail boat too. With very good success. We dont have problems either of it coming down ,The spray glue is very strong. Even when the roof blew off and ended in the water ,the carpet remained stuck.

I am treating 'Twocats' to a new carpet this month.
I think that I must have struck really lucky, cos there is a little warehouse next door to where I work that sells door mats and suprise, suprise .... outdoor carpet !!!!!. Only in green though, he sells a lot for crazy golf courses and patio's apparently. But he also does a range of waterproof carpet used for buses etc in about 10 different colours.
I don't spose he will be too keen on letting me know of an online supplier but I will ask for you.

This looks like a good online out let. Scroll down to van/boat lining on front page. Seems like they wish to sell it in big quantities as I bought half the length I needed and cut it in half for two one metre wide lengths.
May be if contacted they will sell shorter amounts?
