    Default Rhino Liner ??

    There's about 3 threads on floor makeovers. I'm really disapointed how mine is turning out. Got the undercoating out of the bilge , working getting the carpet glue out now. Obviously, the floor was never meant to be exposed. I have seen a few boats with the interior shot with bed liner. I thought it was clean looking, & now it can be done in colors. But, I'm told it decreases the value of the boat cause it looks like you're trying to hide something. Pros , cons, thoughts?

    Some friends of mine did the floor or their Sanger Super Jet with a bedliner deal not rhino and I think it looks great.I am planning on doing mine also.I am so sick of wet dirty carpet in the boat.With the spray in liner all ya have to do is hose it out and throw the cover on.

    If you don't want to spray there is a product I've used called durabak that you can brush or roll, if you use it roll it and get one of there special rollers or it will turn out like stucco. It's like 100.00 per gal. It comes in a variety of colors .

    if your worried about resale, because of trying to hide something, document the process with pics, but ultimatly make it how you want it screw everyone else IMO

    I would not spray that stuff in my boat. Looks like hell and is very ghetto. If you want it to look nice, take the time and do it right. Dont pour that crap over it so the next guy has to tear it off.

    I'm not a fan of carpet in a boat. I'm kinda curious what Brendella considers "right" , as far as the floor in a boat. Right now I'm diggin the balsa on the sides of my 21 daytona but I may rhino(durabak) the bottom of my center sponson. Ironicly I own a carpet/flooring store.

    think about an epoxy finish with a little fine sand for grip, might be a nicer finish than rhino.

    To me it looks like your hiding something. I know I looked at a boat that had it done and I walked away because thats the exact feeling I had. You could be hiding with the carpet as well I suppose but theres something about the liner thats not right too me. The nicest work usually requires the toughest effort. Hang in there with your floor. Ultimately you are the only one that needs to like it (until you sell it). Only my thoughts...good luck!

    This is what I consider right.



    Gel coat. Hides nothing. The new owner of this boat has no doubts as to the condition of the floor because he can see the condition of it(plus I have about a thousand pics of it)If the floor starts to delaminate or the stringers start cracking, the gel will too. Rhino liner will hide those things which could cause problems or potentially hurt someone.

    Rough liners (rhino liners) or what ever are not my thing but if you like and its your boat then it doesnt matter what other people think but i would think about the fact that anything with a rough texture will hold dirt,oil or anything you spill in it will probably stick to it or be very hard to get out, smoothe surfaces are much easier to clean but without finishing the floors that wont look good eather. There is nothing wrong with carpet i think it looks very nice in most cases as long as you dont just thrash it, its actually pretty durable if you use good carpet. Its not a good pic but i had my floors redone and was worth every penny.
