Talk to Wolfeman about the carpet as he may have an idea for you.

Definitely sounds pricey.

That's a full pro stereo system

i had some gelcoat repairs done on mine and it must be hard to match my blue, you can def see the spots they repaired and it makes me nervous about getting any more repairs. what looks worse, a discolored spot that was obviously repaired or some small spider cracks?

i am getting cracks around the vent in front of the windshield on my starboard side and cracks around the rear port cleat.

It looks like they messed up the spot around the cleat when they installed them due to there being an obvious gel coat repairs there that i didn't ask for, now their repair is cracking...

crazy thing is my boat isnt beat up on a alot, very rarely in rough water as i primarily ride a river that is glass all the time. worse beat it takes is crossing the wakes of on coming boats

thats what im worried about..i have a spot on the bow by the U bolt where the rope hooks to( looks like maybe the last owner bumped the dock and took a small chunk out ) and i have cracks around my front tower posts from the pulling..im more worried about the posts haha

I haven't owned a fiberglass boat without spider cracks. They don't seem to affect anything. Have any pictures?

I would do the carpet and stereo first, then get new skins. Unless you can do it all at once.

seats arnt that bad but they arnt the bright white anymore..more of a dark white now from the sun and everything..had to redo the sun pad since there was nothing left and the sun dried out the vinyl andit cracked into 100 pieces

I'd really like to remove my cleats, get the spot where they are patched up, and get pop ups installed but I'm paranoid about how it will look where they were. Ugh what I would do to go back and do pull up from the beginning

David , I think the pop up cleats would cover the old holes from the traditional cleats

Mid ship yes but the rear would be in a completely different location and the now would just be removed all together

I wish I could find some of the old moomba pop up cleats so I can replace my regular ones
