Environmentally compatible and installer friendly, this water-based Boat and Outdoor Carpet adhesive is non-flammable and can be used on most boat surfaces including wood, aluminum, fiberglass and steel. This gallon of carpet adhesive will cover approximately 105-115 sq. ft. and should be applied using a 1/8" notch trowel or 3/32" notch trowel. One gallon.
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

Not enough glue
I ordered one gallon of the carpet glue from the catalog which says it will cover 200 sq. ft. I had to order another gallon to finish the carpet in my 19'6" 1984 Bullet Bass Boat which I purchased new. This is my second major make over on my boat but first time using Bass Pro carpet and glue. Waiting for my order to arrive so I can finish and get back on the water. Also bought the med grade carpet in gray and so far really like it. Just not enough glue.

It may, but I wouldn't use pressure treated lumber. Use exterior grade lumber, and put a few coats of West Systems epoxy on the wood. If it was me I would use a small amout of contact cement on the edges and staple underneath. Using this method you will never have to go back and do this job again.
Yes you can. I just completed a aluminum bass boat where the front platform was aluminum. A few keys... make sure surface is clean, sand area good to allow bonding, wet wipe clean twice, let dry, apply glue with a paint brush like you would put a thick paint coat on. Having a thin coat is important because aluminum is not porious.
YES. THE GLUE STUCK WELL TO MY RUBBER BACKED CARPET FROM BASS PRO, BUT I DONT KNOW ABOUT OTHER PRODUCTS. IT DOES TAKE TIME TO DRY SO YOU HAVE TIME TO ADJUST THE FIT BUT DONT WALK ON IT TOO SOON OR IT WILL SLIP
Yes it will. The biggest thing to insure good results is to clean & prep the surface properly. After removing any residue, be sure & clean the surface with a solvent based cleaner, such as acetone. Using an orange based cleaner, or something not solvent based can result in a film being left on the surface, even if it's dry to the touch. After being exposed to water, the film is reactivated and will impact the adhesion of the glue negatively. Hope this helps, good luck!
