This carpet was made identical to the shape that Cigarette playboy approved. Most would be shocked as to waht he is calling "does not fit"

The difference between the carpet is the cutouts around the bolsters, where my old carpet goes around the leg and back to the wall the new one goes straight over to the other leg.

The quality and look of the new carpet is way better then what was in it. i was all jazzed when i unrolled it. but with the way it is cut it exposes a bunch of the padding.
Here is a pic of how it was cut compared to my old carpet. If it would go back against the wall it would perfect. but i was told that they can't do that. He was real nice about it but said that they can't make that cut so to return the carpet and i will get refund. Hopefully i can find someone who will make one that is as good.

I will try Cigarette but i have never had any luck getting a responce from them.

I see the difference and having just pulled my carpet out to clean it, the difference does make a pretty big deal when it wont cover that portion of the flooring. It makes the carpet look "unfinished". I don't think he's being unreasonable to want it done just like the old one.

I have no idea what the oz are but it was under $1k shipped.
The carpet that was in the boat looked like house carpet that was seamed together but the new one has a complete vinyl backing that looks way more durable.

For future reference, I used www.rrtextiles.com, and I was VERY happy with the results.

I took my old carpet, and made a pattern to send them out of heavy brown paper. I had them cover EXACTLY what I made on the paper, by telling them to make the SEAMS, not the CARPET come to exactly where I wanted it. My original carpet had long 2" slots for the bolster legs. My new carpet had slits, and individual 2" round holes.

R&R Textiles NAILED it, and I was extremely happy with the results. The new carpet was heavy enough with a nice backing that I did not even have to install snaps in it when it arrived. In combination with the non-skid backing, and non skid floor on my boat, it stayed perfectly placed, even in the cabin.
