    Posted: 04/24/2017 at 3:00am
I have decided to replace the carpet and seats on our Fisher 240 Freedom DLX that we aquired when we purchased our house last summer. 
The boat has not seen TLC in a number of years.
I have removed the furniture, console and rails and started to remove the carpet before darkness set in.
The deck is plastic and appears to be in great shape. 
I can't find any information on Fishers permadeck synthetic decking. Is there anything I should be aware of?
Does anyone know what type of adhesive should be used to glue the carpet? 

Thank you for any assistance.

I need to know as well. Just tore down a Fisher 180. I was surprised by the plastic deck.

This is the response from the carpet manufacturer.

"I would suggest a solvent based and as long as it is also neoprene based, they should be fine."

That type of flooring is very tricky because no moisture gets absorbed so they have to use the right type of glue otherwise it won't stick.

I'm not sure what adhesive fits that bill. but if you find anything let me know.

This is the adhesive that I used.

Dap 00443 Weldwood Outdoor Carpet Adhesive.

The carpet is certainly stuck to the deck.

I just got our 180 down to the deck. I will use this glue as well. How much did it take for yours?

I used 3 gallons. Installed with a 1/8 in notched trowel. That's on a 24 ft deck.
It took all of the 3 gallons. 
The adhesive is real thick so you will not be able to pour all of it out of the jug so have a paint stick or two handy to scoop it out.
Initially I poured it strait out of the gallon jug like molasses, which was messy and a pain. 
The last gallon I scooped it all out with a paint stick which was more efficient and I didnt have a bunch of adhesive running down the gallon container. 
Good luck with your project.

would this product maybe pour easier if it was warm?  Like putting it in a 5 gallon bucket of hot water for 20 minutes?  Just a thought.

Plastic deck?  That is unusual.

It sure is. I would never of thought about restoring a boat if it wasn't for this forum and Pontoonstuff.com. 
I have now made the boat mine and it feels really good.
