Not to mention that I like to enjoy dark beer. I‘ll bring three cans and usually spill half of it. ( Fish on! kick can over.)
This has been known to happen, d@m fish! My boat sits at a dock from Apr-Oct and between the rain and all the stuff that falls out of the trees, I get new growth all the time! If it had carpet it would be a new forest. Then add the spiders, snails and snakes that enjoy my boat, it would be even nastier. My cousin just power washed the carpet in their pontoon boat yesterday, he said it was the worst he has ever seen it. We've had a wet late Jun, Jul and Aug. If your boat is trailered and covered then carpet would be fine, but a boat that stays in the water and exposed to the elements it would lead to problems.
