If you did the carpet yourself, what weight carpet did you use? I thought I read all of the carpet/rehab posts but didn't see that issue come up before. Like the dark gray you used though. I went with a gray patterned carpet in lieu of the original dark navy blue that came out.[/QUOTE]
Wish I could help you but a local boat shop was needing some business so I let them do it. The carpet was a heavy grade - came from a local bass boat manufacturer (Bass Cat) and he did get it onto the seams somehow. We only actually removed the middle panel behind the motor. With the closed bow, the front panels are nearly impossible to get out! Pretty obvious that MasterCraft put the carpet in before they put the top of the boat on. Dark grey was original on my boat, we matched the carpet that is in the bow storage.
