Hydroturf B sheets are probably the best bet. Seadek is pricey.

Lots of info out there on these types of products for our applications. The ol google machine can help you do a bit of research...like for your next question. 3m backing or spray adhesive?

Ya, it isn't that I am not looking myself. It is that I have no experience with this and everything I am looking I am not sure is what I need.
I looked up hydro turf and that stuff is ugly. Like old fashion looking camo.
Dont want black because I fish with the dogs in the summer.
Just figure you vets to duck hunting would help

Same stuff I have on my boat. I bought mine through Gator Trax. Mine came with the 3M adhesive, and I also used the glue to secure it to my floor. Word of advise, if you are wanting to have it hold up for many years, keep it out of direct sunlight. My boat was stored outside this summer and it is starting to break down in areas. Keep it under a tarp or inside when not in use.

I've got this in my boat:

Basically the same thing as hydroturf. As mentioned above, avoid prolonged periods of direct exposure to sunlight. It will break this stuff down.

In my plate boat the builder used colored powdered rubber over an epoxy mastic. Acid wash the surface, trowel on a thin layer of mastic then sprinkle on powdered rubber( I used tan dead grass). Had it for 4 years, pressure washed repeatedly moderate hard use never chipped or flaked. Also was quiet, dropped stuff and no metal sound.
