    Alternative to carpet????-gctid362425

    I'm in the process of replacing the deck of my 1850 LX. I am looking an alternative to carpet.

    Has anyone ever used Line-x or any other type of spray in bedliner? They come in a variety of colors now adays.

    I have also been looking into Rhino Hide which is a roll on application with ground up rubber.

    I've also looked at rustoleum and some other more known brands, most offer sand as an attitive. OUCH.

    I like the idea of rubber over sand.

    I would appreciate any feedback, thanks.

    I used it years ago in a 14' aluminum runabout. I had it sprayed on at a paint shop and lasted the 5 years I had the boat. The bottom got scratched a bit but still looked good due to the multi colored pattern.[/SIZE]

        I thought about a spray in last summer when I was remodeling my 1952, but knowing that they would charge $450 for my simple truck bed, I went with a roll on.

        I used a deck paint I got at Lowes. It came in a 5 gallon bucket and was about 75bucks. I bought the gray color and the special roller for it. It is textued sort of like rhino lining and it seems to have sand in it. I is holding up so far.

          Sorry, no pics. I think I paid about $250.00 to have it done, but that was in the early 80's. If I'm not mistaken I think the product was pretty new at that time.

            I am thinking about replacing the carpet in my 2004 210 classic with a rubber mat meterial (sea deck or HT Moto). It seems to be about the same price.... My other thought is "sea Grass" type material that is starting to be offered in the newer boats.

                Wow I like that marine flooring.What would the price of something like that say for an 18 foot open bow.

                I just bought a couple gallons of durabak. has anyone ever used it? Figure worst case I would get snap in carpet as a back up for a liesure day out and the durabak for a day of fishing.

                    Looks exactly like what they sell/sold at Home Depot here in Canada for outdoor mats. I used one of these a few years back as a boarding mat which I stapled to my dock. Lasted about 2 years however I left it there year round even through the winter. Held a lot of water and did not dry easily. Comfortable on the feet however.

                      This stuff is suppose to let the water go right through.

                        They make this outdoor flooring for decks that is kinda new, one guys aluminum boat I was on came with the floor covered in it from the factory.

                        It kind of looks like rubber tweed and comes in a bunch of different colors, not too expensive, non-slip, and waterproof.

                        I was trying to google image search it but my connection is giving me problems.

                          If it is indeed the same stuff then no water does not go through. Take a look at the close up they show. It has what resembles a rubber foam like bottom and I found it absorbed the water hence it took a long time to dry out. The top was dry but the rubber bottom backing was not. I may be comparing apples to Oranges as it looks identical but maybe it is not.

                            I haven't seen it first hand so who knows? You may be right.
