Floor Grip / Bed Liner

Anyone install a rubber coating like truck bed liner on the floors of their SIB? Looking for some grip for standing, moving around and plastic coolers that move around.

I've recently helped a friend deck out an aluminium boat with truck bed sheet and it's thick and very heavy. In fact I wouldn't think it's really suitable and a thinner marine ply would be better.

Thanks for the reply but I'm not sure that is the same stuff I'm referring to.

The bed liner is typically a spray or rolled on thicker rubber paint. Probably would use less than a half-gallon or about 10lbs.

I used a custom color UV resistant version on the interior of my jeep but it's too slick for this application. Seeing if anyone used something like the gray version of Herculiner for theirs.

Tried doing a search and found only a couple of instances but they were all from a manufacturer's advertisement perspective.

Have you thought about using Treadmaster? It may work.

It's very different lol
Truck bed sheet is around 30mm thick similar to MDF but 100% waterproof with a textured non slip finish.
I did mind with anti slip paint and it works well.

Wow that is expensive! Looks cool though.

Stuff I'm looking at is about $17US for a quart. Would take probably 2-3 qts. This is the black version which would get hot but they also make it in light grey.

How about rubber matting, simple, cheap, easy to replace.

I bought some Rhino Liner (I think it was called) to protect some crab traps. Ended up not using it as it was too thick, and hence, heavy. Can is still sitting around in the garage somewhere.

Have you thought about non-slip tape? Quick and easy (though you may need to clean the flooring pretty well first), and much easier to remove.

Thanks. Kind of tossed around the non-slip tape if I didn't get any confirmation on the bed liner.

My concern is for the way we haul and store our boat and the floor boards. We stack the boards back to back and face to face to prevent scratching from the rivets on the face. My worry would be if the tape would act like sand paper against the other. Biggest concern is keeping the edges smooth that are in contact with the boat. With the bed liner having more of a rubber texture, thought it would also help protect the boards while stacked and from moving around on each other during trips.

I probably wouldn't do any of this until the down time in the winter. I may grab a small quart, apply it to a test material and see what happens.

Have used this on my truck exterior with excellent results. It is extremely abrasion resistant, and if used with the textured roller brush that I've linked, you will have a very grippy surface. I have tried some other DIY roller liners, and have had far better results with the Pro-Form liner. I have read very good things about the durability of Monstaliner, but apparently it is not really grippy. Proper prep is essential.
