I have an older model Bass Tracker 175. I need some advice on any good ways to clean the carpet in my boat. I appreciate any help anyone can give me.

Get a bottle of 'Simple Green' - follow the instructions. That stuff will literally clean anything, marine carpet should be a snap for it.

I buy inexpensive aerosol carpet cleaning spray for the carpet in my Bass Tracker.  You spray it on, it foams, you scrub it with a sponge or brush, then vacuum. 

 

Tight lines,

Ditto what Fisher said. Simple Green and a scrub brush works great. Takes out most anything including grease and is nontoxic and biodegradable.

Resolve "high traffic" cleaner works for me along with shout or oxi clean.

I actually had Stanley Steemer clean my boat’s carpet in my driveway before I sold the boat.

 

The guy to whom I sold it told me he’s afraid to let me see the carpet, because it’s filthy, now.

I used a power washer for years on my boat, worked well.  I suggest the simple green procedure recommended above, then do the power wash, no need to vac.  Be sure to be careful with the power wash, you want to be a little aggressive, but don't want to damage the carpet.  Have the front of the boat high and the plug open.

I suggest using a wet or dry shop vacuum cleaner.  It will leave you with a nearly dry carpet.  I use it on the carpet when I've had the boat out in the rain.  Six years of fishing, and I haven't used any type of cleaner.

My boat is a 98 model. I bought it in 2000. No amount of cleaning will ever get my boat to look that good.

The worst mess was when I was at Guntersville.  Got some of that southern red clay on my sneakers and I transferred it to the carpet.  It took three or four rainstorms to get it out of the carpet.

Probably my worst spot is where the combos I am using lay on the deck and over a period of time oil has seeped out of the reels and stained the carpet.
