We are fitting more and more Treadmaster wear patches, I think they look great and give a obvious area that people are to stand on when getting in from a pontoon. I would go for black or a darker grey than the tubes.

If you're going to be spending some time sitting on the wear patches, in your shorts/speedos/pants, then that Treadmaster stuff will leave an odd diamond pattern on the backs of your thighs which will make you look like you're wearing fishnets.

Saves buying fishnets.
Another downside is you might ladder your fishnets on the treadmaster.

I have hypalon patches on the tubes which work fine for people putting dive gear on whilst kitting up. The only other stuff I've seen which is fantastic is used on TP Marine boats, i believe its very expensive but hugely hard wearing.
