Carpet Covers

While at the boat show this weekend, I was on a Sea Ray cruiser that had Sunbrella covers or runners over the existing carpet on the interior of the boat. It snapped in place to hold it taught, which was nice. I don't want to rip out the existing carpet on my boat, but I liked the idea of the runner when there is a lot of traffic on the boat. Ex: tailgate before a football or baseball game, or even a concert, or a large raft off. The admiral thought that it was a good idea, but I am wondering if it is worth the expense.

    My buddy had that on his Rinker. It does save the carpet, is it really a high traffic area?

    All I've wanted was to just have fun.

    These guys have loose carpet protector that you can cut to shape, i would think the snaps would hurt if you step on them when the carpet protector is not down.

    It is where you come down the steps, next to the galley and head, so it is a high traffic area. I agree that the snaps might hurt, but they were up the sides a little and sunk into the carpet. I have a small doormat rug from the previous owner, but it constantly bunches up and is a PITA.

    Just replace the carpet with SeaDek. That's what I'm doing.
