I only put the carpet in for special occasions. After I put it in I take it out, hose it off, and hang it on a saw horse to dry. The floor in my Lightning has a diamond texture, so it's not slippery with out it.
I think the worst thing to put in a boat is carpet. What put carpet under the front seats, clamp shell, and V-drive lockers, all a bad idea. Carpet holds water grows funky stuff that smells bad. Inner spaces in boats should be covered in something like Rhino Liner.
