Thanks everyone!

CaptUB, I 've been thinking about adding carpet to the overhead. I really like the idea.Any suggestions on carpet brand/ type? Carpet would also work well on the cabin sides.
Most carpets are heavy, an auto headliner would be better, I don't remember what I used!!!!?? Cabin sides (called ceiling) I used the gray colored with ribs outdoor carpet

I am considering this stuff to line my forward anchor locker to keep things from banging around to much. It comes in different thickness and isn't to expensive.

EDIT: Will also be getting denser EVA foam for making my gaskets for the hatches.

OQ I would use the thick outdoor carpet. Cheap, takes a lot of abuse and dries fast... It's made for outdoors!

Reason I like the EVA foam is it is waterproof and absorbs impacts from heavy objects. They use the stuff for floatation also. Carpet will still get wet and in a closed locker mold and mildew.

After months of searching I finally found a nice little outboard. It’s a 1993 Yamaha 3hp 2 stroke and it runs like a top. The guy who sold it to me refurbishes old Cape Dory Typhoon sailboats and had 5-6 sailboats in his back yard along w/a bunch of trailers, masts etc. He told me he could build me a trailer, find me an outboard bracket and all the (used)hardware and rigging for my boat just have to send him the list.

I tried to say something but God thought I was wrong and filled my mouth with saltwater. I kept my pie hole shut after that.

OQ: I used sheets of solid neoprene in my big boat. I would worry about the action of the anchor in the bow chafing through the foam.
