i would be curious as to how "small" of a project they do.
I have an old fixer upper 15' fishing boat. Its got old carpet on and stuff, and a soft spot or 2 on the flooring. My spring project was to take off the seats (then rearrainge and possibly put newer seats in if I can afford it, but for sure rearrange), pull up the old carpet, fix the soft spots, put a hatch up on the front deck that built in to store life vests/fire extinguish below, then recarpet it, and then put the seats back on in a more user friendly manor.
I was going to just buy some marine carpet at bass pro or something and do it myself. I mean this boat is nothing fancy.........no livewells, no nothing fancy.......justa driving console with the old cables attached to a 69 evinrude that still runs fine. But being 31, starting a new career, by going back to school in a Physical Therapy Assistant program, with 2 small kids at home, its all I can afford right now! and it floats! It works good for the small lakes around SW Wisconsin that I fish. would it be worth having someone put the carpet in with material and labor included? or for something as simple as my boat, would it be just as easy to do it myself?
any suggestions would be appreciated! I want it to be nice, but for an older boat, I dont want to spend more than the boat itself is worth. I know carpet will be a few hundred bucks with adhesive.......is labor decent at this company? a hundred bucks or so would be worth it.
thanks in advance for suggestions!
