Re: hydro turf

Contact cement! Saved money buying closeout sheets w/o backing. One piece of tan camo was flawed, replaced with dark grey diamond pattern-holding up fine.

Re: hydro turf

I just finished installing my hydro turf last week and used 3M Super 77 Multipurpose Adhesive. Even though I purchased mine with the 3M backing, I used the spray around the seat base and edges of high traffic areas.

Just a piece of advice. Some of the cheaper Hydro Turf is B stock and the camo version of it is known to break down after some time. I don't recall the exact hours until it starts to break down as a result of direct sunlight. I decided to wait and get the non B stock with 3M backing. I figured for an extra $100 I'd play it safe. This may not be an issue if you cover your boat or store it indoors.
