Success! The template I created for the recessed trolling motor was perfect! Now it is time to remove the tray and get to work on applying carpet throughout the rest of the boat.
I procured the carpet for my bass boat renovation on bassboatseats.com. While on this website, you may request carpet samples for colors and various weights. I chose 24-ounce gunmetal gray for my carpet color and decided to purchase 18 feet; which would be extra should I mess up anywhere along this project.
