I Love microskiff.com!
Have to redo my bunks as carpet is worn. I know nothing about the carpet. Any quality differences in manufacturers/brands. Is it work paying for 16 lb carpet vs 14 lb? Any insight would be appreciated.
I was just bustin your chops. I thought about putting a couple of layers of fire hose on first then two layers of carpet over it. Might act like a buffer.I get that
Some people use starboard
Some people use rollers
Some people use carpet
All have there own problems. Ive heard of rollers making dimples in hull bottoms.
I’m only using it on the center bunks so I can run the boat up on the trailer easier. The outside main bunks and front bunks have carpet. I’m going to wax them and it should be fine. I’ll post photos.I can't tell you how it will do on a boat, but I have a little experience with fire hose. After using and loading thousands of feet each year I can tell you without gloves it will chew through the skin on the back of your hands pretty quickly. Basically it's a bad rug burn, but 3 times worse.
If you are talking about rubber jacketed, that's a bit different, but I don't think it would launch easily.
For my cash, cheap ol' grey indoor/outdoor carpet from HD does well in a pinch. Double it up it you need more cushion.
