Bed Liner In Place Of Carpet

Recommended Posts

I recently bought a 1990 Astro 18FDX. The boat hull an motor are in very good condition but the carpet needs some help. What are your guys thought on replacing the carpet with bed liner? Is this a good idea or not? What are some pros and cons of doing this?

Pros- easy to wash out

Cons- Boat rash on equipment, colors affect the "hotness" of it, any fish that flop have a better chance of hurting slim coat.

Bedliner on a glass boat? Ehhhh, I don't think that would work too well. I don't really like the idea for tin boats either, though.

I have been on a boat that did this. It was very slippery (surprisingly but I think the initial roughness had smoothed out a bit) on a very rainy day.

I would not do it on the decks, but would consider it on the lowered floor around the consoles. That carpet always seems to be wet and nasty, plus the bed liner may aid in better drainage.

I know of a guy who did it, his boat looks like crap now, but then again, what little I know about the guy, I don't think it bothers him one bit. I would not do it.
