Pontoon Boat flooring question
I am getting ready to have to replace the carpet on the floor of my pontoon boat. The boat is approximately 8’X32’. The carpet that is on the boat is starting to come up and it appears that it never was glued down anywhere when it was installed. Would it be better to replace it with marine type carpet or use one of the flooring paints, like the Rhino Liner, except the ones made for boats. I want something that will last a long time and not have to spend a lot of money either. Just thought that I would try to get some input before we started to fix it. I’ve never saw or talked to anyone that has used the paint instead of carpet and was just wondering how it worked and if it was worth looking into. Thanks for any help.

I kind of hate carpet in boats but it does have one good use. When it is raining that carpet soaks up a lot of water, otherwise there will be water flowing on the floor. The first time I fished out of a boat with no carpet in the rain I was amazed just how much water there was. The carpet in my boat must soak it all up. On a pontoon there may be places for the water to get out though.

If it was mine and I decided to paint it I would get some very fine sand and mix in the paint before I rolled it on. that would make it less slippery. just a thought. Or after you rolled it on then scatter some around very lightly.will give you a little traction.

I'd recommend not using sand, it will fracture and break down just like sandpaper then cause problems. There is a material called Sharkgrip, it is very fine plastic spheres and will not cause the problems sand does.
