How long have you had these on your floor? I'm curious because I've read reviews that they aren't very durable. It looks like it'd be pretty comfortable.
I'm also wondering about issues with dirt, debris, etc getting stuck in the holes. It seems like it would be a pita to keep clean if you do much boating in sandy/muddy areas or in areas with much kelp or seaweed.

Why is painting not an option? While not really a paint, I would recommend taking it in and having a good quality bed-liner applied (as in pick-up truck bed) if you really want a long-lasting non-skid soft material on your floor boards. The quality ones are very durable and almost indestructible. I have it in my F150 bed for over 10 years, hauling rock, gravel, sand, etc. and it is amazing. Besides very durable, it is easy on the knees and feet, is cool in the sun and is very non-slip. You can get it in many different colors. Although this would last the life of your boat, the really big down side is that it is fairly expensive.

A very cheap option is outdoor carpet from lowes, home depot, or some other supplier. It has a rubberized backing so it doesn't slip around, is easy to cut to size/shape, and is in-expensive. You can cut it to fit exactly, and easily remove it to hose off when dirty. It usually is easy to find in either gray or black colors.

Zodiac has a non slip painted surface on its aluminum floorboards right from the factory, why couldn't you DIY?
