Where to buy non slip flooring for RIB?

Hi,

I am after new flooring for my Humber RIB, it is getting a bit old and ugly...

I tried Homebase, FocusDIY, Halfords .... but they don't sell these stuff.

Does anyone know where I can buy them?

Cheers

Whilst searching on the internet I found this one:

The one you are suggesting, is it easy to cut?

It weighs 400g, won't stay in the boat long.

Yes but you can order it cut to size (up to their maximum).

I would use an anti slip paint for a more professional finish. Most are easy to apply and no more difficult that painting the house and feeding chickens

That stuff is not really designed for standing on and is not very hard wearing - its more intended for slopping objects slipping about, e.g. you could put it down in a vehicle boot or I've seen it on dashboards etc. That price also seems rather high - maplin used to sell it (may still do) for about half the price and Aldi/Lidl occassionally have it for half that price!
