What do you use for cleaning your boat carpet?

Question

FishnBear

I have light tan carpet in my boat and it is hard to get it clean and it never stays clean very long. Is there any really good products or cleaning techniques I should know about? Thanks Harlan

Jungle Jake cleaner and a power washer ,,,works great for me the power washer brings back the look of new carpet ,,,I use Jungle Jake and a horse brush to work out any stains then wash it down if You dont have a power washer get a power nozzle at Menards that will work too

Carpet in a boat? I still don't get it...and I'm a carpet installer! I'm sure it's fine in some boats, but not in a fishing boat:)

I vacum out my boat once a year whether it needs or not smile.gif I agree with why do they carpet a fishing boat. It is like carpeting a work truck. Just makes for more work.

I think it makes a huge difference on the type of carpeting used. Some are more susceptible to staining than others. For the boats I've owned this hasn't been much of a problem. Take it to the car wash, spray it down with a little (emphasize little) soap solution and then rinse. It does a great job of lifting sand and other dirt plus leaves the carpet looking like new again.

I like the carpeting. For me it adds a lot of comfort.

$2 in quarters up at the do-it-yourself carwash, on a side note, grey carpet is great for hiding dirt and stains.

Spray can foam cleaner, let it set for a few minutes then follow up with the car wash hose. Then a good once over when it dries with the vacuum, works well for me.

Wow, I have tried the kids vacuming, but asking by wife to clean the boat would be like her asking me to iron her clothes... it aint gonna happen... maybe its just me? crazy.gif

Best use of 8 quarters is cleaning the boat at the do it yourself car wash!

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
