I use HD carpet for my bunks, but I'd go with a heavy carpet and pad for my boat.

Don't use home depot carpet. It is really tempting because it is so cheap, but it just won't last. It's too thin. Not only will it wear fast, I've seen some people rip it dragging their foot on a hook set. It just isn't designed for that. Look for 20 oz. carpet at a minimum, and it will LAST! Especially if you take care of it. Can be had for not too terrible of a cost, and it will be worth it. Someone keeping 8 years of HD carpet, that's crazy. Good for them! But I'm just going to speculate, they probably kept their boat covered at all times, and don't fish too terribly often. If you fish regularly walking around on it, opening your hatches a lot, etc. you will wear out HD carpet FAST. And then you're right back where you started, having to do the tedious job of putting carpet on your boat.

Mine was redone in the thickest carpet money can buy.. Problem is now, compartments are "tight". I broke a latch pulling door open.
I hoping it will ware down with usage. have been told, heat or wax are also possible fixes.

They will wear in. New carpet is always tight! You must've gone even thicker than 20 oz.!

I promise u it won't disappoint. I can send pics of new carpet and old stuff in other boat if you wanna check it out. Old boat doesn't stay in garage but does have a lil half shed it stays under but rain still can get to it some. Very good stuff in my experience
