    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

    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.
