    Happy New Year everyone!!!
    I requested samples from Corinthian Carpet. I chose the Aquamat. I'm having a hard time deciding which color carpet I should go with. Not sure if I should match the original which is a neutral light beige or go with a bolder darker that will pop and look for modern. I was looking at the Flax, solar surfstone, or black pearl. I was wondering if anyone here could post pics of their boat carpet so I can get a idea? I have been searching through google but can't find any pics. My boat is a 23' bow rider my interior is a off-white and taupe color.
    Thank you in advance

    It's been my experience that the captain of the vessel rarely has authority to make these kinds of decisions.

    That said, I myself am not a fan of the beige/tans. Nor is my admiral, the decision maker. We ended up with a darker grayish marine weave after buying all of the samples. It looks great, especially with the charcoal gray canvas we installed.

    I don't have any good pictures! But here you can see the edge of it.

    Sorry to hijack but how do you guys like the Aquamat? I'm waiting on the same color samples to come and contemplating replacing my berber bridge carpet with it.

    The samples look great. Look like top quality. I'm definitely going with them. Hardest part for me is choosing a color

    We also went with the AquaWeave(PVC) with the AquaMat backing. I do not have any good pics yet as it was just delivered last Thursday. We laid it down, but have not attached the velco "dots" yet. We love the look of it. We had the Berber with the AquaMat back made for our 44DB in the cockpit, bridge, and steps. Love the feel of it, but it is a pain to clean and keep clean. Looking forward to the ease of cleaning the PVC. We went with the Carbonite color from Corinthian and make our own templates. It all has come out perfect.

    We like it especially over the Berber which took a while to dry and kind of smelt musty when it rained and it was 2 yrs old.also cleaning the Corinthian is no effort
    We opted to get rid of the snaps and went with their Velcro. I never peeled the plastic off the Velcro last year and it didn’t move
    It will get hot but I never thought it was a mistake
