Mate is that product you're talking about similar to this? I'm looking at doing this in mine. Can't go past the cost and the 10year guarantee.

That's the stuff. To make installation easier, I purchased a paper cutter from Harbor Freight and it made it a lot easier to make accurate cuts.

Sweet. Great to know. Don't suppose you used it outside as well did you?

Matt, someone was selling interior flooring at the last 2 Sydney Boat Shows, no idea who (sorry,not much help), it looked good.
I priced the exterior stuff before I had my decks redone in real teak except for the bow section done in painted nonslip. Tek Dek brand I think, quite expensive,was sold by Jerry Hendry in Sydney. I have seen it or something similar on a boat. Looked ok, but only just.

Thanks Pete. Not sure what I'm going to do outside yet. Be great if these strips are suitable. Mind you, can't see much issues especially withe the 380 hardtop design roof covering it.

This is the high end way to go. Real teak decking. As I understand it, you send them a pattern and they cut the wood for you and help you with the install or they will install it. Don't think it's cheap but it's really nice.

One word of caution: before you buy anything, take out your keys and try to scratch the surface of a sample. The PO put down some cheap self-adhesive flooring from the big-box home stores and within a year it's full of little dings with white showing through.

In a previous post someone pointed me to Metroflor, which looks good although I haven't tried it yet. Another product mentioned here is Lonseal.

Given the relatively small area of most soles, and seeing what happens when you go cheap, I'm thinking it's worth finding the good stuff.
