SKYDEX shock mitigation flooring

Doing a search in the forum I can see that SKYDEX has been discussed for some years now.

Yesterday the templates were prepared for the SKYDEX shock mitigation flooring which is going to be installed on my current demo rib the Parker 800 Baltic known as Grey Mist. The posted photos 3, 4 & 5 are just samples of the SKYDEX flooring. Even the colour is matching which I like .

This is for sure going to make a huge difference for the body say my body when cruising along in tough conditions - even in any conditions

We are exhibiting at Seawork 2018 3-5 July at Mayflower Park and will also be participating at the new event speed@seawork.

You are welcome to visit us on berth VB01 to jump up and down on the deck and get a good feeling of this type of flooring.

Scotseat now put SKYDEX inside their seats so I have even sent one cushion to them to see what difference it makes. This can also be seen at Seawork

I am not so sure how long it is going to take to get it over here and install but for sure before Seawork. I will post photos when the installation is complete and let you know how this performs.

I am also not so sure but if it makes a difference I may just have all the seats done

Seasure in Warsash list it on their website and there was a firm near Portchester marketing something similar.

It's eye wateringly expensive but I'll certainly be interested in having a look at it during Seawork.

Come and see us on berth VB01 I have never tested SKYDEX so I do not know what to expect but guess it is going to be much better than a bare deck. On my last demo rib I had WOLF shock mitigation flooring and it did make a difference and it was not cheap either

I do not know as yet as SKYDEX are providing the flooring FOC for my demo rib. I will know more at Seawork when I meet up with the SKYDEX people

From Seasure, a 1.5m x 0.6m x 18mm thk piece is £607 i.e. £600'ish / sq m.

You can get made / cut to measure from the Skydex website but that is POA.

I suppose if that were to provide shock mitigation for two jockey seats then you could probably do some man maths to justify it but it would require so special man maths (which I'm afraid I'm quite good at).

People often say that crass statement 'you get what you pay for' and in this case that is true you would pay for and get some well overpriced spongy stuff

Value is subjective but it is a boat, very little is "cheap".

However, suspension seats for those of us who have a bad back are worth every penny. If this stuff helps even more then it is again worth the money.
