    Default Hydro Turf

    Has anyone added Hydro Turf as a replacement for carpet. I'm debating the idea.

    I have not personally used hydroturf, but it is very popular in duck boats, mud boats, and bowfishing boats, therefore it must be a pretty durable product. i think it would be a good addition.

    if you do a search in the above search box, just type the word hydroturf in. Several posts from the past and I was going to use it, but after a year of being in the elements, some of the users were complaining of the flaking off and not holding up so I used marine grade carpet. Do a search as it’s pretty expensive to do an entire boat.

    I did see a few negatives on the camouflage patterns UV issues with flaking and fading. At 80 bucks a sheet it needs to hold up for sure.

    Iíd love to have it in the floor of my Jon boat hydroturfed, but canít bring myself to tear out all the depth finders seat mounts, depth finder and rod holder plates and re drill everything for the rest of the boat. I think it matters on how you store the boat for it to hold up, for example, storing your rig indoors and out of the sun to keep the eventual flaking down and there again, really donít know for sure, how long it will last like a good marine carpet. Then again, all I have to do is get the power washer out, and hose the boat carpet down when itís dirty. I have been thinking about hydroturf now 4 years and havenít made my mind up yet.

    We have it in our duck boats and our bowfishing boat. It's pretty durable stuff. The camo pattern will wear some but for the most part it's tuff stuff. Just power wash it and it looks new.
    The camo we have it a rough contoured type not the smooth surface like above. That would make a difference in the wear I think.
    The wear we have is the ribs wearing down not the actual base.

    There will be days when the fishing is better than one's most optimistic forecast, others when it is far worse. Either is a gain over just staying home.

    Straight from their website. HYDROTURF - Traction Products

    I know you can find it on ebay and other places but I wanted to make sure I get A stock and not B stock. It $109.00 per sheet with adhesive.
