depending on the type of carpet, if it is not too absorbant on the backing i would just use some good quality 3M brand spray addhesive. i would scuff the floor first with some 80-100 grit sand paper first

I was thinking eitherin out or marine. the thing with the 5600 is it folds in half so thought about just putting it on each section

you might not need any adhesive at all if you use a rubber backed carpet. if you do get some slippage you might consider strategically (?) placing a few pop rivets w/washers. that way you can remove it easily to replace or dry out... just a thought.

Non-skid strips. The type you put in your shower. Won't add weight. PK

I would think you would need "carpet" that would dry out quickly..... pulling a hut with wet carpet won't be much fun.
