Floor covering

Hi again lads,
I am thinking of putting some kind of non slip flooring down on my sibs wooden floor, and have come across this... ebay item 130303524436.
They are made of EVA and are labelled as non fatigue.
I think they will stop a bit of noise, protect the floor from fishing weights and hopefully be non slip, both under foot and when things are sliding backwards when under way.
What do you guys think?
Will they last two minutes, and are they really non slip?
Does anyone know of anything better for a simlar price?
Cheers,
Geoff

Great minds.....

I was looking at getting something similar to this (ebay 140391684317 ) to cover my aluminium floor.

It's a bugger to keep it really clean when it ends up covered in cod sh1t, thornback blood, ragworm guts etc....

The big question is DO they float.
if you get any water in the sib your be tripping up just walking across them.
may well be worth asking the seller.

Yes, they will float.

They are also not so non slip when very wet.

Any blood/guts (from fishing) will still make it through to the floor below too.

Not ideal IMHO.

Mmm, think you are probably right. I had my doubts about the mats.
What about these... 180480637441. Look good, but a lot more expensive. I like Sharkbytes idea too, but again, pricey.
Anyone else have any other alternatives?
Cheers,
Geoff

Again it looks like a plastic that may well float if water is in the boat.
unless you can fix the matting down onto timber decking/flooring on all of the sections .

The only other thing i can think of is self adhesive pads of Treadmaster and there expensive as well but fixed and will not float about the boat .

Why call it not slip flooring them,this stuff not cheap and made for decks,yes it gets dirty ,but it scrubs up, it floats and yeah you will get a little mess going throught to the deck,more designed for larger boats NON SLIP flooring

I've used http://www.heskins.com before when I needed some anti slip for my RIB, now i'm all sorted with some anti slip strips and they've stuck fast, I actually may have problems if I need to remove them for some as yet unknown reason lol.
