Sealing SIB Floorboards

Hi All,
I want to seal my floorboards and i was wondering what would work best.
I was thinking of truck bed liner so i could get the added benefit of non-slip.
Any ideas?

most likely guna chafe the toobs on ya with the bed liner stuff. resin seems to work best, then you can do the nonskid with resin on the deck serface.

As Fred said resin will be good but till trap water in too so make sure its dry.
If you put some form of none slip down where do you sit in your sib as some drysuit knees wear through fairly easy on non slip decks!

i have in the past mixed a small handfull of sand in with the varnish or resin for making surfaces non slip,one thing about using clear products ie varnish or resin is you can see if any water or bad moisture is getting through as it goes white in colour or color, regards mart
