Carpet is kind of a personal preference, are you going for factory style? or a heavier weight better carpet? Could help to look at a new boat w/ different carpet options. See what you like.

Made pretty good progress yesterday. Removed all the carpet, cut hole in floor to "look" at bubble. It is similiar to other post on the subject. 3 rows of three holes aproximately 2 inches each covered in a layer of thin fiberglass tape. Foam got wet and degraded or froze and popped the 1/8" fiberglass floor loose from the black "W's". Looked like I had a layer of Glueish stuff troweled on with a notched trowel? My thought is to cut out the two area on either side of the motor (18" x72") where its bad and clean it up and reglass. Should I remove all the foam as long as I'm there and put new in? any thoughts? TB

Yesterday I also got two small surprises. 1:Learned I have a big fuel filter on passenger side of tank, will work at getting it apart and cleaning. 2: I had "access" covers installed in the floor under the tank. They were sealed down completely. I had to unscrew and pry them off they were stuck to the foam insulation. Someone had "repaired" the swim platform previously. They used 1/4" stainless bolts with nylocks no washers or backing plates. It LEAKED the foam was wet the transom appears to be in good shape still. The top nuts were just above the floor and had been epoxied in. My thoughts on repair was to use a stainless backer plate with 5/16" bolts welded. Stick the bolts out the holes as studs, epoxy and glass the inside. Bolt the bracket back on with cap nuts so it looks pretty. do you see any problems with the stud method or should I bolt from the outside in? TB

It might be a good time to consider changing over to removeable brackets.

Show me some pics! Every thread I search talks about all these great pictures that no longer exist. I like the idea of removable for more room in garage but the rattle thing has me leary. Wow I'm up to 18 posts when do I officially loose my Lurker status? I'm thinking of quiting my job to try and catch EastTexas skier!TB
