Another one! Where can I get...??

Where can i get the appropriate/best glue for sticking carpet back to the hull in my boat?
Also Where can I get the rubber gromet type things that seal the wires and cables as they come out of the hull into the well, not sure what they are called? ( some boats also have what looks like hoover hose to make all the wires look neat too?)

Cheers

Grant

I use "sikoflex" if thats how you spell it from the marine shop its always done the trick for me.

"(some boats also have what looks like hoover hose to make all the wires look neat too?)"
I use the pipes for ponds and aquariums any garden centre has them.

Not sure about the other question sorry!

You want to use a good impact adhesive (evostik) for fixing your carpet. As the carpet is breathable, you'll only need to apply the glue to one surface!

The cone shaped things the cables come through are usually know as 'Witches hats' and you should be able to get them from any chandlers or boat dealer.
