Anyone know of a fiberglass boat that is made without carpet? Maybe sea deck or something similar.

Ranger intercoastal. That Xpress that guys on the elites is freaking sweet. Not sure if it comes that way or not.

If you go through Ken Smith boat review videos I remember a couple of them you could get it as an option, I think Falcon was one of those and a couple of them its standard in the floor but not the deck, I remember Vexus was that way. Honestly it looks like no carpet is where the industry is going.

Sold my fiberglass a while back got an aluminum, the no carpet part was a big reason. It’s got the textured kinda like a truck bed floor. I trashed it on Saturday launching off the bank with mud and just sprayed it off when I got home. I think a fiberglass with no carpet would be sweet but I do miss that cushy feel.

Not really any quieter than aluminum with no spray on bedliner. Problem is its hot as Hades in the summer, put it in a bass buster and wish we never would have done it.

I believe falcon and ranger are the only ones that will do the whole boat without carpet right now. Most all will do the cockpit area without carpet. That's besides aluminum. Yes, the xpress was loud when closing lids but you could add weather strip or something to make it quieter pretty easy it looked like

I'm watching the replay of MLF on Sam Rayburn today and they guys in Blazers also have it in the cockpit.

I haven’t really noticed anything unusual, I’m actually pretty serious about trying to be quiet while fishing in the spring. I have only had adults in the boat though.

Buddy has one of these and I was super impressed when I fished out of it a couple weeks ago. Not sure if they are still making it, but they should be.

Sounds like the sea deck material isn’t made to hold up in the sun or something, since it’s not being used very much on the decks.

The lower console area is a catch-all for everything. That area is the worst for keeping clean. The front and rear decks, not so much. May be why it’s only being used (mostly) in the lower floor area.

The guys at Duck River Marine have been restoring older bass boats and put sea deck instead of carpet. Check them out on facebook.
