Recarpet boat help?

4 posts in this topic

I am going to recarpet my 16 ft Northwood next month and would like to know if anyone could point me in the direction of how to do this myself.

I am only doing the floor and decks as the carpet on the side is in great shape.

I have all the tools just need to know the proper steps to take.

Any help would be much appreciated!

I did my bow area last fall. You will have to remove the floor so that you can staple the carpet underneath. The carpet is also glued to the wood, which makes for a fun time removing it. You might as well replace the wood while you got it up. Just use the old pieces for patterns. Same with the carpet. Good luck!

Its not a fun job!

if the wood isnt rotted, take an angle grinder w/ a wire brush to get the glue off.

Buy a bunch of new stainless boat screws too - Fleet Farm has screw packs in their fishing area.

About half of the boats that we do had the floor pieces carpeted before installation, and the others were carpeted after the floor was in. If the latter is the case, then you shouldn't have to take out the floor, unless, of course it's rotten. Also use some staples to hold it down and prevent air bubbles. When the glue is dry, you can pop out the staples and you're good to go.

      Rainbows are typically stocked.  Check the DNR for locations.      SE Minnesota, Whitewater, Root river systems have nativized brown trout.     But if you just want meat, go to costco.   Buy them it is cheaper.

      Update: APR 27, 2017 — We requested a meeting with school administration to see HOW we could make this work - how we could break down barriers and open pathways. Sadly, we were declined. We are moving forward and will be presenting our petition signatures, research and plan to the school board on May 8th. Please help us get to 500 Plus!!  signatures! Thank you!! JKJKODA

      The Department of Natural Resources celebrates Arbor Day on Friday, April 28, and Arbor Month in May by recognizing the health benefits of trees in Minnesota.  Trees and forests provide numerous health benefits such as: Helping reduce skin cancer. Decreasing mental stress and promoting healing. Cleaning the air and reducing childhood asthma rates. Reducing stressful noises by 50 percent. Providing healthy fruits and nuts. “Getting your daily dose of trees is good for your health and easy to do,” said Jennifer Teegarden, DNR forestry outreach specialist. “You can climb a tree, go camping, sit under a tree, take a hike or visit a forest.” To encourage people to get a daily dose of trees, the DNR is launching the #31DaysOfTrees challenge during Arbor Month. Simply post a photo or video while getting a daily dose of trees on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Use the hashtag #31DaysOfTrees and include @MinnesotaDNR when posting to Facebook. Participation will be tracked using hashtag #31DaysOfTrees. Participants may win one of five state parks permits and have 10 trees planted in their honor in a Minnesota state forest. The more times a person posts enjoying their daily dose of trees, the more chances they’ll have to win. Participants must be 18 years or older and a Minnesota resident to win a prize. Visit the DNR’s Arbor Month webpage to watch videos of Minnesotan’s getting their daily dose of trees and how trees improve health. Additional details on the #31DaysOfTrees challenge and a listing of local Arbor Day celebrations can also be found on the Arbor Month webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
