After seeing Camella's post about new cockpit carpet, we've decided to do the same using the synthetic weave #3. http://clubsearay.com/showthread.php/62527-New-Cockpit-Carpert-48-Sundancer At the same time I'm considering having it made for the swim platform and transom door way. The boat is in a covered slip that has an outdoor kitchen built on it so we're constantly on an off the boat and tracking dirty foot prints on the platform. The carpet would hide it the footprints and give a little more grip. I've created templates of the pieces I need and will be getting a quote. One of my hesitations is putting snaps into the platform. I'd silicon them up really well when I installed them but it's still a hole in the surface. Thoughts?
