Cabin Carpet

My new (to me...) 1996 C28 mkII has outdoor grade carpet in the cabin that is pretty worn, and the rubber backing is turning to dust. I like the idea of carpet and was wondering if there is a source of cut & bound carpet for Catalina sailboats, or if the best approach is to just buy some carpet and figure out the cutting/binding. I can use the existing carpet as a pattern if that is the case, but the edge binding might be a pain..

Any suggestions on vendors/techniques for replacing the carpet?

Thanks...

If the present carpet is good enough for a pattern, you should be able to have it done at a carpet shop. Or, buy the carpet and cut it out and take it in for the edging.

i own a carpet store.

if you can use the old as a pattern it would be best.

i would suggest an outdor carpet. there are many that will look like indoor carpet. or you could use a high quality commercial that is solution dyed. polypropolene (olefin) are most common for outdoor, while solution dyed nylon is most common for high performance commercial. most polypropolene rugs are solution dyed.

the foam backing can always be added on by a good shop. so dont look for only foam backed carpet you will limit your choices. i would suggest that you take the old carpet to the dealer and let them do the cutting and binding. i would also suggest that you insist on having the edges sealed (using hot glue) after cutting but before binding. this will eliminate strays which could run.

Another great source is companies that supply remnants of OEM Automotive carpet.
