Need some input from my fellow boat owners.
. Good idea to re-carpet our Bass boat ourselves?
Anybody done their own?
Any tips or tricks that would help?

I did mine once, PITA especially with a lot of lids on a bass boat. With the high price to have one done and the relatively short life of carpet I decided to get Safe Floor next time and never need to do it again....but then I bought another boat with anti-skid floor from the factory so I don't have hat problem anymore.

I thought about SafeFloor but not convinced yet. Shops around DFW want about a grand to re-carpet and the boat is 21 years old so was just wondering if it would be worth trying it ourselves. With 9 kids, might be a real chore.

I did one myself. It is a PIA. Much harder than I thought and it didn't come out as nice as a professional job but like you it is an old boat so I didn't care. There used to be someone around Fork that advertised on here and his prices weren't horrible compared to most shops. Everyone always said he does a great job. I hate paying someone else to do something that I can do much cheaper but when I need new carpet, that is one thing that I will pay to have done now.
