Chadwick Bruce Felmet asks: My project boat, 16′ Canyon River welded aluminum. Looking for suggestions/pros/cons on the decks and flooring. I’m torn between carpet and hard surface. Was going to reinforce the front and back decks with 3/8″ marine plywood. Deck the floor with 1/2″ marine. Carpet or just grip coat the whole thing? I like the ease of washing off hard surface, but the feel and quiet of carpet. Thanks for any help.
