I'd suggest going with solid lumber. Ply delaminates when it gets wet unless you take a whole lot of care to seal it.
As to carpet, it wears, and will eventually need to be replaced, but any good heavy outdoor rated carpet should do OK (outdoor rated meaning water resistant, and mold/mildew and UV treated.) [Note: Just realized you've a SIB rather than a RIB; carpet wear is likely not going to be an issue anywhere but under the transom.]
