Covering it up opens up your options nicely . I would favour the wire brush (brass) on a drill approach.

To cover, on one small boat I used carpet squares held up simply by double sided carpet tape (not overhead though!). The real cheapo synthetic ones for the anti rot properties (and being cheap!). The main idea with using squares was that easy to fit. Stuff up trimming one edge and don't need a whole new piece - and plus not being glued on can be replaced easily if ever needed (boat was sold a couple of years later so never needed to do that). The lines between each tile looked ok and barely noticeable.....really tidied up the interior.

Oh, and I painted the hull insides with bilge paint first - just to clean things up.

I just looked at the pics. I went through the same thing with the restoration of my boat. I personally prefer not to have any carpet whatsoever in the boat. After all of the carpet was removed, I used 60 grit sandpaper and an orbital sander to remover the carpet/adhesive remnants. I painted over the surface with a heavy duty bilge paint. You can use Rustoleum as well. I have had good results using it for a portion of the exterior of my boat where carpet used to be installed. It really cleaned up the area!

If you take this route, make sure you wear a respirator and be prepared to clean lots of dust. This is much better than a chemical stripper. You will not have ANY problems whatsoever with any oil based paint adhering to the surface. It has been several years since I applied the paint and it still looks brand new.

In the next phase of my restoration, I plan to either install bead board where the carpet formally was or mill individual planks and install them strip by strip. The bead board seems a little easier, so I'll probably take that route.
