    Whatever you guys do, go with the 40 oz. marine carpet like the stuff that Rex sells, its a little more cash, but what you end up with is far better than a 30-20 oz. carpet! feels great on the feet, more durable, does not stain lighter colored towels or clothes when wet on the floor of the boat!
    one more thing, 40 oz. carpet hides a tone of imperfections in the floor of your boat, it has got to be the easiest carpet to lay down and tuck into the corners of a stringer and/or bulk head! just my .02

    it was installed 4 yrs. ago.

    Next time try R-M "PreKleeno". Soak a 2x3 towel, rub the area with it then lay the towel out over an area. After about 5 min it will scrape off very easy. This is what the body shops use.

    the stuff is cheaply put together and unwravles when you cut it. it doesnt leave very clean edges.

    ...that would be 7 year old carpet if this post was meant about my old boat.
    and it is the same dark charcoal that Rex sells.
    I personally would recommend a sprayable yellow glue that is a "Dap" product (Found at most all interior supply houses), stay away from water born glues as well, water and fuels will delaminate your carpet faster than you can pound a beer in a desert hot spell! just a few more cents on mine that have worked well for me in the past!

    I called Santa Barbra Upholstery Today. The Guy that I talked to said that They had the Marine grade carpet , but only carried the 20oz, and it is $32 per yrd and comes in 6' and 8' widths. I would need an 8'x 12' piece or 4 yrds, and would cost $128 + tax, which I guess is not a bad price ,but its not the 40 oz. He said He carries 4 different shades of blue, so I am going to go look see at what They have on Thursday.
