This adhesive worked as advertised. I bought a cheap 4 inch paint brush and cut off half the lenght to stiffen it up a little. Worked great as an applicator.
Applied the glue, then the carpet I had pre cut to size. Glue was dry by next day. To attach carpet to livewell lids, used Scotch spray adhesive.
Very satisfied with the glue.

Just finished rebuilding my bass boat 3/15/12 and used this glue for the carpet. I was a bit concerned by reading some of the other reviews that 1 gal won't cover a 17' boat, or that the glue didn't set properly even after a few days. My guess is these people didn't have a clue...read directions.. I had a 1/4 of a gallon left over from my carpet job. I used a paint brush to apply the glue, (like a thick paint application) and then used the notched trowel to create the needed voids. Worked great and had about 20 minutes to adjust the carpet before the glue started to set. Make sure to dry fit the carpet before putting down the glue so your not messing up the glue coat. Used a rolling pin to apply pressure. Checked the adhesion last night and the carpet is down solid. I also know that in 10+ years when I do this job again, the carpet should come up without too much problem. Cleans up with warm water...had a small amount on my finger that got on the carpet and used a wet rag to clean it up. Can't wait to get out on the water and go fishing!

carpet & glue
I added bass pros premium carpet to my Lowe Rough Neck aluminum boat a week ago. I was a little nervous at first but was surprised at how easy it was. I have to admit that as a guy I tend to do the project first and then read the directions. I cleaned the boat and cut the carpet to fit. A pair of scissors worked better than the box cutter I started with. I peeled the carpet back and spread the glue onto the rubberised back of the carpet with a 4" wide scraper. I pushed this into place and worked my way to the other end of the boat doing about 2 to 3 ft at a time. I love the look, feel, and lower temperature of my boat. Around here 110 degrees is pretty common and this has extended my time on the water by a couple hours/day. I recommend this to anyone putting carpet in an aluminum boat
