Looks like hypalon with reinforcing.
The ones we have on the Atlantic are as above and are glued to the deck, just the usual prep work and then two coats of glue.
We haven't broke any since we got the 75 but on the 21 we used to replace a few and removing the old ones used to rip splinters out of the deck so they's no chance of em coming off.

I hardy use them on the Atlantics, prefer to jam my foot under the tube although in the footwell you have no choice.
If fitting them yourself you should get them where YOU want them, after all the RNLI can't keep everyone happy!

Sorry for taking this thread on a tangent mate and thanks for the info. Basically then I just need to source a strong material and fit to the deck in the most secure way.
How about nailing me Wellies down ?

You can buy the foot straps if thats all your after?
Dead easy to fit.

Make sure you put drain holes in the wellies, oh and they have to be Yellow wellies as everyone knows these make your boat go faster!
