    HI. I'm looking at some used Sea Ray boats like the 175 Sport and a few others. All are about 18 feet long bow rider style with the 3.0L Mercruiser Alpha One. Do the carpets come out of all of them ? It seems some have carpets that snap into place and can be removed which I would prefer. I plan on keeping the boat on a lift and stripping the boat as much as I can between use.
    Bear with me, I'm a new guy here. The boats I'm interested in are low hour boats with a fresh water history.

    Welcome to CSR. What years are you looking at? I would think anything in the last 20 years would have some type of snap in carpet (if it was ordered that way) I had a 88 Wellcraft that had glue down carpet everywhere and it was a real pain. Good luck

    My 1994 is listed as having snap in carpets, however, it is definitely glued down. Used boats, owners do things....
