just picked up my "new" boat yesterday...not new, but a '97 which is new to me. couple questions...the carpet is so-so...needs to be replaced sooner or later. i've seen on the pics of the brand new boats that the carpet is pretty "plush" looking - any place in particular to buy carpet from that would be a nice addition? how hard is it to do?? also, i noticed underneath the windshield that there is a small spidered crack in the fiberglass on the side of the boat...nothing major...is that a real big deal to anyone? i know if i paid $50k for it it would matter...but it is 9 years old. The hull doesn't have a mark on it...and i know this guy took care of it...what would cause the small crack(s)??
on a side note...i picked it up in salt lake yesterday...and drove it home to wyoming... it was hammered by the time i got home...covered in snow, ice, and dirt...and salt from the roads. it was 5 below zero when we got home...i took my truck and new baby through the car wash...but the soapy water was freezing before i could rinse it off! needless to say the entire thing is a huge block of ice including the interior...sitting in our shop. nearly killed me to see it like that... hopefully it doesn't break in two before it warms up and i can clean it up.
