How have you found the matting in use. Was it worth the effort or do you find it traps dirt under it. I have just got a Honwave TE32 and I'm thinking of doing the same.

Truly awesome, transforms the floor in look and feel. I generally only use it on the sea so there isn't really any dirt but the boat stays very dry anyway, regardless I always remove the floor and wash the boat out of any salt water and grit etc.

I make custom fittings to suit from 8mm shock cord and various toggles and hooks, see the eBay store belonging to these people for all the bits (when they reopen from hols):

Brilliant review mate. I'm going to get some matting for mine also as I agree about that middle panel web piece.

Have looked at other suitable mats/matting and are having some samples sent to me to try out.
Its PVC, its what the boat is made from,,,,, different colours, patterns (grip/texture) and thickness. So should not turn things yellow and is fuel resistant.
So well post findings back here by the weekend.

Company supplying samples is on ebay,,,,, loads of helpful info,,,, Coruba is their trading name.

Any update on this?

Follow up on PVC matting

Sorry for the delay,,,,

Got the sample the other week

Its the 2.5 mm stuff, had it in the freezer for about 4 hours and it was still flexible with not signs of breaking. It was dipped in 2 stroke for an hour with the only sign of anything different was it looked cleaner looking on one side. You can see the lighter colour on the second picture,,,, top inch.

Ebay site name is coruba-online, their main site web site is called metroseal.

So I rang metroseal about ordering some, the ebay site is were they sell their end rolls and can do them a little cheaper.
End up getting the 4mm stuff as its cheaper then the 2.5



Had ago at fitting it this weekend along with the steering set up, got a longer steering cable for the cross bar steering, just need to get the right cables for the gear and throttle controls.

Nice job Al.

Added a mount for the Silva 70 I had knocking about - cut from a piece of number plate! Heat gun and some careful shaping and moulding, it 'spring' clips very tightly around the rail. Gaffer tape is just to reference the fore-aft plane of the boat so I can see if it sits right, will see how it goes Sunday...
