The clear plastic seat protectors work great on the interior... although do tend to get very hot and pliable.
We just throw some towels over'um.

Just buy a boat it's not perfect and already scuffed At a discounted price then you don't have to worry about it so much and you can beach it and just have fun

Yes, beaching dulls the gel but as long as it's just sand I don't have an issue with it.

My wife wanted to bang on the boat this summer but I had to say no. Could have stained the interior you know! NOT!!!

My girlfriend's footprints (now wife) are still on the ultra-leather ceiling on the Formula. Long weekend so it's hard to remember how her feet got up there.

Sounds like some of you guys need to work on your trailer loading and launching skills.

Is that the reason you had the hull and deck problem?
