Carpet installation: DIY or pay?

I've got a 1997 PS 205 which I would like to get the carpet replaced. I got a quote for $1100 (seems steep especially since I could remove the carpet and glue residue myself) which caused me to rethink getting it professional done. Is this something that is easy enough to DIY for someone without experience laying carpet or is it a pain in the a** and just to let the pros do it? I've read others restoration threads and it appears straightforward but the run from the bow to stern looks like it could be quite a task along with other nooks/crannies.

Also, if you were to DIY would you keep it just to visible floor or run up the gunwales and under the seats?

Any thoughts or suggestions would be helpful. Thanks
