I've seen the Rino Lining type stuff (actual product was Line X) sprayed in the bottom of small aluminum boats before and it makes a nice durable coating. The only problem is that most of that stuff comes in black and it is just about as hot as the bare aluminum. I had an aluminum boat one time that I cut plywood to fit the bottom and used a staple gun to attach astro turf type carpet to. I did not attach the plywood and you could just popout the sectionsto clean underneath. Having the wood on the bottom was much cooler and muchquiter.
Thanks guys. I'm still looking for a pro to recarpet my boat. Let me know.I wouldn't have been so slow getting back if I knew how to flag my post to alert me to replies on the new forum. Help for that would be great too...Mike
