Decadence for 205V

Has anyone pulled the carpeting on their 205V and replaced with Decadence or similar? I have had the process described to me but I am afraid to cut out my carpeting without a better understanding first of what the resulting raw surface is like, what the edges near the seats are like after cutting, how big a deal it is to get the carpeting up and out and how much post removal surface prep is required.

Thanks for any guidance

Following as well. Part of the problem is the carpet runs up the inside of the gunnel on the right side, and inside under the helm past the foot rest wall. Might be a big job for sure......

maybe there is a way to leave the right side wall carpet and have the seam hidden where Decadence buts up against it? The joint at the foot rest wall seems easier to manage. Will see if anyone was brave enough to have already undertaken. Sure would be a nice upgrade if it can be managed

There's a picture of a 205v with the carpet removed and seadek somewhere on here. I'm trying to dig it up

Edit:
Here it is

Here's what the owner said about the prep work

The installer tightened up the transition where the carpet was still showing on the main floor. took about 5 days once at the installer. its worth it to us to not have carpet. completely changes the way the boat feels now.

Thanks. i think that is a fabulous result. i guess the remaining questions relate to the 'installer" and those transitions. i am going to contact the original poster

Anyone know if the seem gaps are big enough to bother a heel or worse catch your toes? Standing on the gaps looks painful or at least annoying.

Looking at seems between the ski locker and the piece that includes the inspection hole I wonder if this is problematic.
