Everything To Replace Your Flooring But The Plywood!

Pontoon boat vinyl flooring kits come with the marine grade vinyl flooring you need plus parts and accessories that will make your flooring project easy.  PontoonStuff® created the idea of carpet and flooring kits so that you would have the right supplies for your restoration project.  We supply you with the same hardware and flooring used on new pontoon boats.

What's In The Pontoon Vinyl Flooring Kit

  • Choose from standard 34mil or heavy duty 80mil vinyl pontoon flooring.
  • 2-3 gallons of carpet glue (16'-25' kits include 2 gallons, 30' kits include 3 gallons).
  • (100) deck fasteners, choose from self-tapping screws or stainless bolts.
  • (32) pontoon fence risers lift your railing off the carpet (no dirt around your rails).
  • (32) stainless pontoon fence bolts to fasten your railing back down to your flooring.
  • 50' roll of deck seam tape, lay over each cross member to seal under plywood joints.

80mil Heavy Duty Vinyl Flooring Must Ship To Commercial Address

  • Due to the heavy weight of our 80mil vinyl flooring it must go to a real business address, no exceptions.
  • FedEx will not deliver these rolls of vinyl to a residential address due to their weight.
  • There are no additional shipping charges, FedEx simply won't load these rolls on their Home Delivery Trucks.

Installation Tips

  1. Space your deck screws or bolts 16" apart when securing your decking.
  2. Apply adhesive to your deck using a medium nap paint roller.
  3. Use a roller or stiff broom to firmly press your new vinyl flooring down into the glue.
  4. Install your fence risers under each bolt that secures your railing to the deck.
  5. Cut the deck seam tape into 8' sections and lay it on top of the aluminum cross members connecting your tubes. The deck seam tape seals the joints where your plywood comes together, preventing water from working its way up under your carpet.

      Q: How do I install new vinyl flooring on my pontoon boat?

      A: In order to install your boat carpet you must remove all of the old carpeting and adhesive from the deck of your pontoon.  Also, it is important to fill any voids or delaminated areas on your existing deck with wood putty or fiberglass filler.  If you do not remove the old carpet and glue or if you do not fill the voids in an existing deck you will feel the imperfections under the flooring and most importantly any left over adhesive may interact with the new glue, preventing it from bonding with the back of the carpet. 

      If your deck is clean and the surface area is ready for the new vinyl flooring covering then read on, if you are having difficulty removing your old carpet please see below where we discuss the problems you may run into.

      Before applying any glue to your deck roll your new pontoon vinyl flooring out completely over the deck of your boat so that you can inspect it.  Occasionally vinyl flooring will have imperfections in it which we may miss or it can get damaged in shipping, now is the time to discover any problems.  Do not glue your vinyl floor down before you inspect it.  Call us immediately if you have any problems so that we can replace the vinyl flooring for you.  Once you have the vinyl rolled out and it looks good, fold it in half the length of the deck.  For example, if you have a 20' pontoon boat, get in the front of the boat and fold the vinyl over width wise and do the same in the back leaving a 4' wide by 20' long section of your deck exposed.  Your vinyl flooring will be folded on top of itself on the other side of the deck so that you can apply glue to half of the decking.  

      By folding the floor covering this way it makes installation much easier, you can apply the glue by standing on the side of the pontoon, without needing to get on your hands and knees.  Each gallon of glue will cover a 8' x 12' area, so if you have a 16-24' pontoon boat use one gallon per side, if you have a 25-30' pontoon you will need a total of 3 gallons of glue and will use 1-1/2 gallons per side.  Take your first gallon and dump it evenly across the exploded 4' x 20' wide section of the deck.  Using a medium nap paint roller spread the adhesive over the deck and make sure that there is full coverage with no empty areas.  Be sure to spread glue as far into the center when the flooring is flipped to one side so you don't end up with any areas that are not covered with the glue.  Once the glue is applied lay the vinyl floor out over the entire deck and make sure it is flat and squared up.  You will not have much time to work with the vinyl once you lay it on the glue, so be sure it is lined up on the deck properly before you begin applying the glue. 

      Next you must compress the vinyl flooring onto the lines of glue.  The polyester backing will bond to the glue when apply pressure, forming a bond which will hold the vinyl flooring in place once the glue hardens.  Use a heavy roller, you can rent a carpet roller or use a heavy pipe to press the carpet down onto the glue.  This is the most important step, if you do not press the flooring down hard enough the glue and backing will not bond together causing it to come up or creating lines and bubbles in your new pontoon flooring.

      Q: How do I remove the old carpet?  What if it doesn't come off easily or only comes off in small chunks?

      A: If your pontoon boat is a 2000 model year or newer you may experience difficulty when removing the carpet.  Newer pontoon boats use a heavier carpeting and a stronger glue than was used in the 70's, 80's and early 90's.  Boat builders applied special marine adhesives that provide excellent adhesion and heavier backed carpeting than you see on the older model pontoons.  Also, since these boats are newer the carpet and glue have not deteriorated to the point where it is easy to remove them.  On most older pontoon boats the carpet will come off fairly easily with some scraping, cutting and tearing.  If you find that your pontoon carpet is only coming off in small chunks and that you cannot seem to remove the old adhesive and fibers you can try renting a floor sander or simply replace the decking. 

      To remove the decking without taking up the carpet, if you choose to replace the flooring, here is how you do it.  First, find the seams where the plywood decking meet up, take a razor knife and cut across the floor separating the carpet on each sheet of plywood.  If the plywood deck is bolted down, cut the heads off the bolts under the deck and rip the decking off.  If the deck is screwed down, use a hole saw and locate the screw heads, cut around each head and tear the decking off.  Then use a sawzaw to remove the screws and plywood plugs that are left over.  You may find that the cost of the plywood is worth it compared to the time and energy you will spend trying to remove carpet that won't come off.

      I really like the vinyl flooring. It all arrived quickly but I requested the 1 1/2" stainless bolts. What I received was 3" coated bolts. Not a huge problem for me but it was a little time consuming to cut the ones that were too long. The glue that came with the kit was plenty to ensure a good, thick, even coat. For anyone else looking to buy this kit I'd go with the self tapping screws if I were doing it again. The bolt heads do sit up a tiny bit above the deck and can bee seen through the flooring material. They also make it harder to roll out any air bubbles that may be under the vinyl. Overall I'm happy with it but I would have preferred the shorter stainless bolts.

      Love the vinyl flooring! It looks like it was professionally done and we are NO professionals! Got a few buddies to help out with the plywood and rolling out the vinyl flooring. You absolutely need a heavy roller!
