Boat floor

Post by Sullo » Tue Sep 07, 2021 12:49 pm

I need to replace the floor in my tinny , thinking about going alloy checker,just not sure if it will get too hot,i dont mind painting it or putting some sort of matting over the top. It is only $100 more than ply and carpet that i've done twice already.Any thoughts cheers

I have alloy, its painted and has tube matting over the top. The tube matting is comfy, easy to clean and doesn't get hot.

Its a bit pricey but we are installing deck armour. Soft under foot, keeps dry and doesn't get hot.

Hey mate, that deck amour looks great,sounds like you are building a awesome boat. This is just a 4.4 m tinny, it gets used and abused pretty hard,crabbing,prawning,4 wheelers,dogs and dead animals but thanks for the reply :cheers:
