Clean with Oxyclean.

It is very easy to remove. Just remove the seats and anything covering the
deck and tear away. You many need to use a razor blade to help cut the
adhesive, but the time I did mine, it came up very easy.

If you remove the carpet, check to see if you have any dry rot or weak areas
on the decking that need to be repaired before installing the new carpet.

I just hosed the carpet down and then scrubbed it. I wasn't fussy about the
cleaner - it may have been carpet shampoo, because I started the job with
our carpet shampooer and didn't think it was worth the effort. The scrubber
I used was a stiff one on aabout a 4' pole. I think it wasn't intended for
spot cleaning carpets.
Anyway, when I was done, I raised the bow as high as I could, removed the
drain plug, and flooded the carpet with water. A year later and there's
probably still some soap left in it!

I've always steam cleaned the carpets in my boats. Usually 1-2 times a year
depending on how dirty they are. Then just put a strong fan on it for about
12-24 hours to dry thoroughly.

Hi,
I just use the power washer at a self serv car wash. If there is
grease or a stain I pretreat with goop or other waterless hand cleaner
and a scrub brush. Raise the bow, pull plug and let sit in the sun
until dry.
Works very well.

Paul
