Glue a neoprene floor cover and then glue the carpet on top of that.
Use a thick neoprene but check to make sure everything still opens.

Welcome aboard TF and congrats on the "new" boat.
For interior sole replacement you might consider PlasTeak sheet flooring. I replaced interior carpet with this stuff including the optional padding and really like and recommend it. Not as inexpensive as big box vinyl but if you want a great look and feel ( soft under bare feet) worth considering
See for pics and info. Many styles available.

Found them! Dirty reinforced tubes on the front of the tanks clearly show my enormous tanks are completely full of red liquid.

Just because the sight glasses are full of red liquid doesn't mean it is good usable diesel fuel. Look for a bottom drain valve on each of the tanks and very slowly take a sample in a clear quart jar from each tank.

If you see any black stuff come out it is allege, and the tanks will have to be washed down and the fuel polished to 2-microns. The last thing you want is to go to sea with dirty fuel and/or dirty tanks.


Welcome to the forum and don't let all of us old guys scare you away.
