Flexiteak

Morning,

does anyone have any experience of the above guys?

i am looking to get it fitted. i have seen plenty of ribs that have been done in the build process but anyone got first hand experience of aftermarket fitting??

i have very little deck space on Charlie Brown as the raised foredeck takes most of the space. im worried it will be a little bit complicated and look rubbish.?

thanks in advance

Tony,

did you have it fitted in the build process of was it an after market thing??

I spoke with Flexiteak yeasterday at the show who were very nice. i know they do a lot with Scorpion and other manufactures but guess its a lot easier to fit without the console and seats in the way!!

Personally i think it finishes any boat off well and my experience of it isw fantastic grip in the wet!

It was fitted at Scorpion at manufacture stage. It is fitted under the console and the seats.
It gives brilliant grip and gives the boat the finishing touch!
It does mark if you dont wear boaty type shoes though..

I had it fitted by Ribcraft on my 7.5 it looked great and was simple to clean... fairy and a deck brush or the power washer....
