replacing carpet

I am in the process of tearing out and replacing the carpet which is currently glued to the fiberglass hull inside.

What kind of adhesive or glue should I use to glue the new piece of carpet to the hull with...?

thanks...

Don't use 3M 5200 that's for sure. Contact cement works. Be carefull with the vapors it's extremly flamable have good ventilation no open flames what so ever. I would disconnect the batteries too.

Carpet glued to the fiberglass hull....???
Are you refering to that monkey fur they glue onto the hull sides or the carpet you walk on? If the latter then Home Depot sells some good indoor/outdoor carpet that seems to stay in place without adhesive, the backing is almost self adhesive, you can easily take it up but in the process you can feel it resisting.
If it is the monkey fur how about double sided tape for easy removal next time.

BTW, wear a good respirator with an organic vapor cartridge in it if you're going to be using any contact cement inside the boat... No flames, no electricity if you can avoid it... sparks and contact cement fumes will blow you up.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

If the carpet comes out in one piece use it as a template it will save you some time.
