Re: Rugs on the Boat

rel·ish   /ˈrɛlɪʃ/ Show Spelled
[rel-ish] Show IPA

1. liking or enjoyment of the taste of something.
2. pleasurable appreciation of anything


Mind you I could splatter it with Tomato Sauce (Ketsup to you guys ) and I wouldn't see the difference.

Re: Rugs on the Boat

Espie never had any, white painted floor boards. Donovans' Reef never had any, blue painted floor boards. Random Wake never had any, no floor board either for that matter , Brandy never had any, Teak floor boards.

Sabre Dance came with some blue white speckled indoor outdoor carpeting cut to fit and hemmed. The large one got binned, the two smaller ones I keep for laying on in the engine room. I'm back to white painted floor boards. I find them too easy to slip on.

Re: Rugs on the Boat

i have a fake oriental i found fr om a friend years ago that i use for mykat--also a shaggy bathroom style rug without latex backing i also use for cat---- i wash em periodically so they dont stink and bubba is allowed to hock up his furballs on them-- they are his. they are not in place for sailing as rugs kill ye...lol broken backs/hips/wtf on sailing trips can kill....and bubba KNOWS they are HIS ...i have teak and holly soles in doors.
the fake oriental doesnt look half bad with relish etc on it----LOL--improves it i think....and the vinegar takes out the stink....

Re: Rugs on the Boat

I use some of those black ribbed mats cut to size you can get at Costco or Home Depot. They never get stinky, stay in place and when they get dirty it is easy enough to hang them over the railing and hose them off. They also don't look bad.

Re: Rugs on the Boat

I tried using indoor / outdoor carpeting, but I found too much mold underneath after using them. Does anyone else have similar issues with mold or moisture?

Re: Rugs on the Boat

but the latex comes nasty in hot climates..... guaranteed. it melts to the sole--i try to avoid that mess.....mine dont have backing of latex--- rubber backed rugs are latex--is what rubber is.

Re: Rugs on the Boat

Latex over time does fall apart which is not necessarily true of all rubber or rubber like synthetics.

Re: Rugs on the Boat

synthetix are great--
natural rubber is latex.
latex melts in hot weather.
pair a dice has hot weather.
i wont use latex on my boat if at all possible.
75 percent of world's population is allergic to latex, even if not apparent at present. no reason to tempt fate--lol
i wont use rubber backed rugs anymore as i have a nice reminder on my teak and holly sole of that mis-steak from hell...LOL. have fun and goood luck.
is easy to say yes rubber backed when one is in temperate climates--i used to say that-- now i am in hotville i wont mess my boat again. is easier to not use them than to clean the bs off my teak and holly sole.
