I replace the old tattered carpet in my 2001 Waterman with SeaDek. I was going to use carpet but the SD was a simpler application. It was hell to get the old contact cement off the sides/under gunnel area once the carpet was removed but when finished it looked great. If I had to do it again I would pay someone to do it!;)

Never had an issue with sand down here I don’t really get out of the boat. I just like carpet better
I pulled the carpet out from under my Maverick gunnels and it had about 5 pounds of sand in it. You would never have known it because I pressure washed the crap out of it after every trip. Trailering and wind will get it dirtier than you’d imagine.

Skiff Shop will remove the old stuff and put new stuff in for about $400. That might sound high, but I spent three days removing the old stuff and would pay $400 in a heartbeat if I was in FL.

You can try it yourself, if you're up for DIY. The carpet is available at Home Depot (the stuff HB uses) and the contact cement / tools are not complicated. Just time consuming.
