Q:whould this product work to cover bunk boards that are under
a 24 ft cudy. I am only asking this because I like the coler
and my bunks are 6in wide and it seems the only thing offered
by overton's for that size is in black?Asked on 7/15/2009 by Anonymous from Deer Park WA.
A:This carpet is cut in 8.5' widths and is sized for replacing the flooring in your boat. We have carpet cut specifically for bunks. Not sure what the length of your bunks are, but we also offer a 12ft bunk carpet in a deluxe version with color options (see item 71847). This only comes 11"W x 12'L. Our other widths in the standard black carpet are 4, 8, 12, and 24", all coming in 12ft lengths (see items 70990, 70991, 70992, and 76098.Answered on 7/20/2009 by Ryan from Overtons
A:Yes, any marine carpet will work on the bunks. The length is the only thing you need to consider. If your bunks are longer than 8ft, you will have to get that length to cover them. If you only have 2 bunks, there will be alot of wast. If they are under 8ft, you can run the carpet sideways to get them with less carpet. measure around the bunk, then X it by the number of bunks to get how much carpet you need.Answered on 1/7/2010 by D Snow from Decatur, AL
Q:I have a 19.5 ft Promaster. There is carpet everywhere except the floor. How much carpet do I need?Asked on 7/15/2009 by Anonymous
A:This comes in 8.5' widths. If there are no consoles, seats, etc. to measure around, then you would need to order at least 20ft to be on the safe side. It is recommended that you measure the square footage you will need before ordering and not go off of the boats length only.

Q:Do I need to remove the old carpet or can I glue the new carpet down on top of the old?Asked on 7/13/2009 by Don from Phoenix, AZ
A:It is recommended that you remove the old carpet and glue for proper adhesion when installing new carpet. You will want to scrape and sand all the old glue down so that the new glue will adhere properly.Answered on 7/20/2009 by Ryan from Overtons
A:YES, You need to remove all the carpet and backing off that you want to replace. The rubber backing will sometimes stay on the boat when carpet is removed. If its not cleaned off, your new carpet will be lumpy. Never try to put carpet over carpet. It wont stick down and it would look terrible.Answered on 1/7/2010 by D Snow from Decatur, AL
Q:I have a two level deck (just purchased home) made of untreated decking that has had little care. One level is 20'x 24', the other is 10' x 10'. Here are my questions:
1. How much carpet will I need?
2. How much adhesive?
3. This deck received full sun most of the day. We live in Central New Jersey where the carpet will be exposed to all manner of weather conditions: ice cold, snow, rain, summer heat, etc. The deck is a couple yards from an in-ground pool that is chem'd with chlorine.
3a. How long will the carpet survive under such condition?
3b. Can the adhesive take this kind of wear? (It is moderate use.)
3c. How long will it take the carpet to dry after a relatively good rain?Asked on 7/9/2009 by Rob from Central New Jersey
A:This carpet is sold by the running foot and is 8.5ft wide. You will need to measure the areas that will be carpeted in the levels provided to determine how many feet you will need. The amount of adhesive depends on the final square footage you will be covering (1 gallon treats up to 125 square feet). This carpet is designed as an indoor/outdoor carpet and can be exposed to all weather elements, but like most outdoor fabrics/materials, will need replaced over time. It has been tested against chlorine exposure and will hold up to this and the other conditions listed. Depending on how heavy of a rain you receive, the carpet should dry out within 24 hours, especially if exposed to sunlight. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact our tech department (1-800-334-6541) for more informationAnswered on 7/13/2009 by Ryan from Overtons
Q:will this carpet lay properly after it is cut and bond on the edges or does it have to be glued down TedAsked on 6/29/2009 by Anonymous
A:The carpet requires an adhesive for proper installation. We offer the recommended adhesion in a quart (item 35910) or a gallon (item 35911)Answered on 7/1/2009 by Ryan from Overtons
Q:We have a 22 Cuddy cabin boat. I'm not sure about how much carpet to buy, because I don't know how much a running foot is. Please advise.Asked on 6/18/2009 by Phyllis from Kaufman, TX
A:The carpet is 8.5' wide and the quantity you order is the length. For example, if you order 20 units then you will recieve a roll of carpet that is 8.5'wide X 20'long.Answered on 6/22/2009 by Michael from Overtons
A:If you are doing the boat from front to back including cabin. You will need 44ft. That would be about 15 yards. If you are just doing the outside carpet,you need the distance from the froward most part of the floor you want to cover to the back times 2. This will be enough to do the floor and sides. A running foot is 12 inches X the width of the carpet. A running yard is 36 inches X the width of the carpet.Answered on 1/7/2010 by D Snow from Decatur, AL
