  • Replaced Carpet w/miners moss. ?

    • Year: 2003 Brand: Moomba Model / Trim: LSV Cost: $0-$249 DIY or Professional Install: I installed it

    Replaced worn carpet with miners moss. Carpet is as snap in. Used as template and cut miners moss. If you did not know miners moss is fairly soft to walk on. When dirty I just pull out and wash off. Also covered whole floor and does not need to have snaps to hold in place. I did get the solid backing. Seems can be held together by super glue, you can’t see where I pieced it together. Love and would do it again.

    Utopia Tools. Bought two rolls for two boats and had enough left over to put in bottom of my trucks tool box. Both rolls think I spent right at $250. Most gold dredge equipment and tool companies carry it. Just remember there is two types, closed and open back. Closed back had a solid backing, this is what I used so if someone drops or spills it catches it.

    Weird question for you guys that have done this mod...

    How did you do your seams?? I've seen some where they cut both pieces with and angle and overlap and others that cut them flush and butt them up. Curios to hear other experience with the seams.

    I followed these directions as per the video below.  I used Oatey Clear PVC Heavy Duty Clear Cement for the seams.  I recommend putting wax paper under the seams before you glue.  Make a few (or several) light coats versus a couple big ones, otherwise the glue will make its way down to the top of the carpet (since you glue it upside down.)

    how do the seams look after?    The video is great, but only shows the bottom side, where he does the work.   Can you see seam when you flip it back over?  Is it undetectable or barely noticeable?  Or is it obvious?  Thanks.

    As a test I asked my friend to find the seam and he initially identified a barely visible run in the "fabric" that is from manufacturing that goes right down the middle of the roll.  Anyway, I put my seam so that it runs along (and under) the Captain's chair.   Nobody sees it.
