If so how do you do it?

I have purchased a rubber matt (octomat) on the deck to prevent the chipping of the gel coat/ fibre glass

Hi Mick,
where did you come across this matting, was it in our neck of the woods?
Cheers Aaron

Glued this rubber matting down to deck 15 years ago and its still going strong despite hard use.

I found loose matting tends to ruck up in heavy weather.

I use cow matting. Designed for cow cubicals and avalible from any good agricultural supplier.

Mine came from a farm sale, couple of quid each and they come in 4x3' mats. Not sure on the new costs.

Back in the '90s, dive RIBs were almost universally decked out with ring mats, (also found in ski stations ):
