    Hello Everyone,

    I started out by creating custom templates. I have a prodim machine that I used to create the templates but you could also create them with mylar film and a sharpie. I designed and fabricated the flooring off of the templates. Once I had the completed product, I removed the snap in carpet and all the snaps. Next I thoroughly cleaned the floor with windex and then again with denatured alcohol. Next I peeled off all of the stock natique mats on swim platform and stern steps. I did this mostly by hand and with a little help from a putty knife and 9 in 1 tool. Those natique mats left a bunch of adhesive residue and a black ring around all of the inlays so I buffed it out with some rubbing compound for about an hour and a half. Once I had the surface adequately prepared for the flooring to go down on, I started placing each piece. I like to work from bow to stern. It took me about an hour and a half to install all the flooring. I start by peeling the backing on the flooring back and creasing it to reveal about 1 " of the adhesive. Next I place the piece down on the deck and the creased backing does a good job of keeping the adhesive from touching the deck while i get my alignment. Once i feel that it is aligned properly i will tack the adhesive in a few spots. Next i take a step back and make sure the alignment is good. Once i am satisfied i will set the adhesive and then remove the rest of the backing. Next i run my hand over the product back and forth setting the adhesive and trying to work out any bubbles. After i have the piece down i press the beveled edge very hard all the way around to ensure a good bond with the deck. Once all the pieces were down i blew the boat out with a blower and it was ready to hit the lake!

    What year is that 211?  I have an 04 and I'm being told the 2006 version is slightly different than the 04.  If that is an 04 or 05 was this direct ordered from Seadek?  Thanks for any help on this!
