Carpet for the 2011 Fundeck 216 OB
I'm considering adding carpet to my 2011 Fundeck 216. I have the snaps already installed on the deck. What's the consensus?
- Are there boaters out there who have carpet and have removed it?
- Does the carpet in your boat make boating that much better?
Can anyone give me an idea on where to purchase carpet for specifically my model Fundeck?

It feels much better than the non-skid on bare feet. It also seems quieter when underway. The only drawback is that it gets dirty from the lake water if it's muddy.It comes as an option so the dealership should be able to order it for you fro the factory.

One major reason is that our boat is kept covered, in a covered slip at a marina. Wet carpeting would cause all sorts of mold/mildew issues. While I personally wear Teva water shoes, we have never had any questions/complaints about not having carpet, even from folks who have carpet on their boats. The non-skid surface works fine for us.
My suggestion would be to try it without carpet for awhile. Then if you decide you want it, order it. I suspect you would need to order from a dealer.

When we fish, I prefer to remove the carpet so I can more easily wash down the deck during and after that activity. If we are just cruising, playing with water toys or swimming, both my family and guests appreciate the comfort of carpeting under bare feet. I pull up the carpet and let it sun dry (it usually doesn't take long) if it gets too wet.All in all, I'm glad I have the option.
bshippjr: I agree with your post. I expect to keep my boat covered at the marina. I'll go through my first boating season without a carpet and see how that goes. I can always order it NEXT year if the non-skid surface starts to bug me.Thanks!
