Carpet in the cabin

We just bought a 1976 Catalina 22. We''re thinking of installing marine carpeting in the cabin. Has anybody here done this to theirs? Did you just carpet the deck, or did you carpet the vertical surfaces and sitting/sleeping surfaces? If you carpetted the vertical and sitting surfaces, how did you butt the seams together and prevent the seams from fraying?

Just the sole and we cut to fit; it was a difficult job. The edges are bound with stichted binding tape. It is holding up well and the carpet surface is good for non-skid and protection of the teak.

Carpet is for living rooms, put a teak and holly cabin sole in your boat. It''s easier to clean, better non skid and will not mildew.

Carpet in the cabin

I fitted a piece of interior/exterior industrial grade carpeting to the inside of my C22. It was a remnant that was getting tossed out after a job at the company I was working for, so it didn''t cost me a dime. It being exterior grade, it was made from synthetic materials and as such, was easy to cut and burnish the edges with a soldering gun and a knife attachment.

As for the results, it seemed to deaden the "tinny" sound of the fiberglass cabin and it seemed to insulate the cabin sole a bit from the cold. This was a good thing when getting out of the bunk on a cold morning. I had cut it in well enough that it didn''t seem to wonder or slide about even under the worst conditions. It gave a nice "homey" atmosphere to the boat and drying it was simply a matter of lifting it up and tossing it into the cockpit. It held up well, two years that I had it in there and it went with the boat when I sold her.

I would suggest purchasing either an inexpensive runner (with a non-skid mat underneath) or a decent bath mat with a rubberized back -- the latter can be tossed into the washing machine and is easily replaced if it gets badly soiled.

Oh yeah... and you don't have to varnish it

My bad... Presumably the OP has found a solution by now. Thought I saw this listed as a 'New Post' while eating my lunch -- apparently not (mistake likely due to my brain being near frozen solid with this weather).

No problem. Good advice is never a bad thing, timely or not. I figured i'd bring it to your attention before SD did.

CLucas—

Occasionally, an old thread will get listed as a "New Post" because some spammer has posted to it, and then their post gets nuked, but the thread still gets listed as having recent activity.

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.

CLucas, old or not, your advice is appreciated. I just had to post because SoCal is in the middle of a heat wave. Santa Ana winds and temps in the high 80s and low 90s.
Sorry, I couldn't help myself. Thanks for the advice.
