The boat is made of fiberglass, then they put gelcoat on top. You might buff through the gelcoat, but not the fiberglass. If the hull was that thin it would have buckled the first time you took it out. Try buffing a small spot and see how it turns out.
Rip the carpet out. Don't listen to your father. He clearly knows nothing about boats.
