    i would try a 3M "77" or similar spray if possible.... might have to tape it off to prevent a mess but aerasol can might be the nice thin layer youll need.

    I'd also like to replace my carpet completely.  What kind of carpet do I go back in with and where is the best place to buy it?  Anything have to be done to keep it from fraying on the edges?

    Don't know if it matters with the carpet choice but it's a waterman hull and has the curvature under the gunnels.
