    After ridiculus estimates years ago I have since allways done mine myself. I have also found flotex to be about the best, very easy to fit and idealy suited to boats.

    I have felt based carpet from Carpet right. I created a template then cut out the carpet at home. SWMBO then organised the edge to be oversewn. happy with the finish.!

    Flotex for inside and a weather/waterproof hard wearing carpet (can't remember it's name) for the cockpit. All fitted by a domestic carpet fitter.

    It is a good idea though to lift the flotex carpet periodically (say, once a month) to prevent the backing sticking to the cabin sole.

    Hi Julie

    We are at Mercury and had all new carpets fitted at the marina last year.
    The guy who did it did a good job at a good price.
    Let me know if you want his name - I'll have to dig it out.

    One thing to remember - if it is a Sealine that is to have new carpets - the factory uses a very sticky adhesive when the boat is first built - takes ages to strip the old ones out - thus expensive if you get a carpet fitter to do it.
