Treadmaster flooring

Now that I have a floor I was thinking of laying some treadmaster flooring around the main deck area and at the helm. Three questions.

1. Is it really worth it

2. Smooth finish or original diamond finish

3. On a RIB with yellow tubes, White hull, floor, console etc, What colour. I was thinking white but could get real dirty real easy.

Thanks

RIBase
Treadmaster

I have it in my boat and like it. I have the original diamond pattern - longer lasting I reckon.

However, it is expensive and does need to be stuck down well.

One negative point - it doesn't like petrol - I had a leak and one section of it wrinkled up.

Regards



Duncan

I fitted Treadmaster throughout the whole boat and it seems to be lasting. Haven't seen any problem with fuel spills. I fitted Black to an all yellow boat and it seems to be still black and undamaged after nearly a year of twinsets being thumped down on it every week

We have a white deck (not Treadmaster) we were advised not to have a white deck, wished we had taken that advice ,dispite hosing down after every trip still looks grubby
