Marine Carpet, where to buy?

I am looking for some marine carpet for a 74 Glastron Carlson. It is a CV-16 and look a lot like the GT 150 that James Bond jumped in Live and Let Die.

I am not doing a full-blown restoration but I want to keep it close to original. The boat is a burnt orange metallic with beige. The interior is the burnt orange color. I have found vinyl for the seats but I am coming up short on the carpet. It is the old grassy indoor outdoor stuff and matches the orange and has dark specks in it. I have samples from guys selling on ebay and seem to find the same stuff when I google. So if anyone else has any ideas I would appreciate the tip. Thanks, Kevin

Finding it in the right color is the issue. I am finding it hard to believe that it's not available. What about all the professional sports teams that incorporate an orange? I would think indoor outdoor carper for the man-caves would be all over the place.

Just got off the phone with West Marine. I'm probably going to check them out Saturday. There's a store about an hour away. Thanks for that tip BBB. If anyone has more please post. Thanks again, Kevin
