    I'm interested in replacing my carpeting on my little bowrider with EVA teak floors. Curious if anyone has done so on a similar year/size model. Looking at the different manufacturers, I don't think any of them have my boat template on file. I've seen the DIY roll options, but I'd really prefer that custom border pre-cut look.

    How much did the floor plan change during this period, and even between manufactures of the same parent company? For example, would it be the same as a Bayliner 175?

    No, not the same as Chevy and GMC. They are not "made" by Brunswick. They are totally different companies that have their own buyers for materials, their own workers and also each make their own molds.

    I'm not being dismissive - I'm not relying on "guessing" or "assuming" - I'm offering you a fact. But you are welcome to "assume" and go ahead and order a kit for a Bayliner ;) You are also welcome to doubt me (that's not sarcastic - I'm being straight and honest) and do your own research.

    Epic second post. I'd suggest you take a gander at someone's post count before taking your shot :)

    But more on-point, it's deeply insulting to all Sea Ray owners that you would suggest a Bayliner is anything other than that distant, troubled and substantially less interesting cousin that we don't talk about around the holidays.

    Cool... thanks for the insight. Not interested in egos, so I'm out... all the best.
