Should I put paint, carpet or both in the cabin ofmy 22' project boat?
I decided to wait until next week to remove the deck hardware from the Southcoast 22, since I am leaving for a camping trip Wednesday. So toy I decided I would start sanding the iside of the cabin.
With my orbital sander I began sanding away at the old paint. What I noticed is that sander wasnt sanding everything. Neither the hull or cabin-top are perfectly smooth surfaces so the sander was just hitting the high spots. I am pretty sure that in order to repaint I need to have every inch sanded, am I correct?
If this is true then I might consider putting some sort of marine carpet or something of the sort that I have seen in the cabins of other small boats, on the hull sides of the cabin. When I have seen it in pictures it really looked pretty good, and it may even look better having a 2-tone interior instead of it all being off-white. Maybe a light blue carpet?
I cant carpet the whole thing so I will still have to roughen up the cabin top some am I correct? Maybe with some steel wool?
Am I on the right track here? Are there better alternatives? Should I not even think about carpet due to mold and mildw that it may atract?
Small is beautiful, simple, cheap, and easy......
