I've carpeted many boats myself . Was always happy with the results its a pretty straight forward project . My opinion is do it all . Make sure you do a good job removing old glue as it will print thru the carpet . I use an air da to sand it down just make sure you wear a respirator . The hardest part I have found is keeping your hand and clothing clean during install so you don't transfer glue onto new carpet . Keep mineral spirits and a lot of clean rags handy just in case you do . Try an keep the old carpet as intact as possible so you can use it as a rough pattern . Do not cut to your pattern exactly leave things a little over sized and trim as you go . Make sure you have a good carpet knife and lots or replacement blades and buy good quality marine carpet not indoor outdoor carpet
