rubber matt for airfloor

Hi was thinking of putting a 3.5 mill thick rubber matt in bottom of my honwave 3.8 air deck to protect floor while still new from damage ,fishing hooks ect.has anyone tried this and does it work?have bought a piece of rhombus boat deck matt from corubba but not got it cut yet,only problem i wasnt thinking about was its pretty heavy, any feedback?

Max did you ever keep a note of that bright blue grid type matting in the Zodiac 3.4? I'm looking for exactly the same for our current 3.4 but can't remember what it was and not been lucky with a Google search.

Thats good to know beerbelly;did you put the straps for fuel tank up through the matt ?i was thinking they would help hold it in place.do you leave it in when you roll boat up ?

David, I sold it with the Zodiac but it is just the same stuff sold at caravan dealers as awning flooring or similar or in tiny pieces as non slip drawer lining etc.

Max have you a pic of it... I remembered it as quite a heavy roll of stuff more like an industrial door mat where the dirt would drop through a grid pattern. In fact my memory is of something like this in the blue variant...

€˜Open Grid' High Quality PVC Grid Matting €“ Coruba

I have some of the awning floor non-slip light stuff and within a few mins it's all rucked up by feet and the dog.

Thanks for the idea of Coruba Jake... they do some decent matting... at a price!

Ahh, not sure TBH, I didn't think it was very heavy duty or tough though.
