2460 Denali Cuddy " remodel"

Postby Puddlejockey » Tue Jul 02, 2019 7:05 am

Hey all!
I'm new to both this forum, and Pursuits in general; so howdy!

We just picked up a 2002 2460 Denali - naming her "Paws Button" btw ;
And the interior of the cuddy " wall carpet" is a tad stained in spots- and generally ugly. It looks like...17 year old carpet in a fishing boat.

I'd like to remove all that carpet and redo the interior bulkheads with teak trim or marine grade lapboard; potentially with a thin layer of material to replace the sound deadening lost by carpet removal - or maybe just remove it and go gelcoat with some teak strips a la sailboat v berth. does anyone know what's under that carpet; and what I'm going to find in regards to wiring, gel coat, etc? I'd also like to remove it to get a better idea of the cause of the stains ( good moisture readings in hull but you never know) ; but don't want to open a can of worms for an essentially
Cosmetic upgrade/ repair.

Thanks!

I believe it is glued on, and it may have a wire to a light under it. Taking it off could be a can of worms. maybe before you go that route you could try carpet cleaner on it? You can always pull it of if it does not clean up. If you do you will most likely have quite a bit of glue residue to scrape and remove chemically to get to a smooth finish. Try a test removal in a hidden area.

I don’t know for sure about pursuits. But from what I’ve seen under the carpet in other boats it is not faired to a nice smooth finish either. May find that if you want a nice gel coated finish that you may also need to do quite a bit of fairing first.

Thanks! The gelcoat was my primary concern; but I've been so impressed with the build quality that I held out hopes for some good news. :)
Will def just try shampooing / cleaning it first
Luckily- this weekend is one of only two weekends a year when I avoid our local lake like the plague- so I should have some time to tinker. :)
