I've always hated my boat carpet. Boat after boat, it was always dirty and stinky. Once you cleaned it, you had to let it dry for a week before the carpet wasn't holding water. The knock on SeaDek for a bass boat is the gaps it will leave between the lids. I have a couple ideas to counter that thought. I'm also willing to put up with gaps if it means no water logged carpet that takes forever to dry out. Stay tuned as I update this project.
