US Plastics has pretty fair prices and a good selection. 3/16" x 2' x 4' is, I think, a bit over $20.

Do a web search for HDPE sheet and you should come up with someplace acceptable.

Thanks, I'll try again, now that I'm clear what is needed. The hast estimate was around $240 per metre squared for 10mm board - that was tooo much!

I saw a boat using those door mats made from astroturf hung over the side , looked like a good cheap idea to me as the stuff has some shock absobing properties as well as alowing things to slide off

Now that's an idea. If I got enough, it could double as camouflage and maybe the wife will stop complaining about the RIB on the front lawn!

Plus, you can wipe your feet before getting on board.
