When I prepped the boat this past winter for our re-power, I covered the entire sole with a piece of leftover carpet from our basement, pad and all. I got used to it and, although not very "yachty", I too liked the feel of it, and it had some sound deading (sp?) qualities to!

Our sole needs attention, but I need to repair a annoying water tank leak first. That "Teak" carpet is pretty kewl, different anyways.
