Hello -
I have a 20' G3 center console - camo. Man can the metal interior get hot! Any suggestions on a floor coating that could help me out some? I looked at Seadek and it's around $4k to have it done. While I would consider it, I almost think it's too fancy for my boat. My G3 is new, but it's camo and it gets used and it scratches easily. I was hoping to have someone professional do it, but stay in the $1-3k range. Any suggestions or pics?

Look at Hydro-Turf. It comes in 4' x 8' sheets with 3m adhesive. Its very light and extremely durable. You can walk barefoot on it in the summer. Just hose out if dirty. Easy install.

You might price SafeFloor, I know its cheaper than SeaDek but not sure how much. Could maybe price a lighter colored Line-X also

I pulled the dark grey carpet out of my X19 and installed a light colored line x type coating. Doesn't get hot at all and not too rough to walk on bare foot.

It's only a good cast if you catch a fish...

Where did you get the material? What was the cost?

Durabak No slip coating. It's used on navy ships, commercial boats, etc. $124 / gallon. I cleaned the [censored] out of the aluminum, rough scuffed it with a wire wheel then applied a self etching primer for aluminum first per the manufacturer's recommendation. I ordered mine off Amazon, blew in with an undercoating gun I bought for less than $30.

That looks real nice , How long is your boat ? How much paint did you end up using . A undercoat gun can go through a lot of product in a big hurry .

My boat is an X19, so 19'. I did the entire topside and all of the rod lockers, storage, and engine bay using 1 gallon and a quart and still had a little left over for touch ups later if needed. The undercoating gun I have is adjustable and doesn't really waste product. I turn it down and blow a base coat that is thin then come back with a heavier coating and the first coat keeps if from sagging.
The key with aluminum is surface prep.

Appreciate it, not a big fan of carpet even in my bass boat.

Its simple to use a bottle to spray directly for a while.

This is what you need. Like above it is hydro turf that was bought in rolls. I did not buy it with the adhesive back. i took it to Danny at Lake Fork boat carpet and he cut to match then took it to his guy and had the black trim sewn in which looks awesome. 1 year of really hard fishing on it and it still looks new!! all said and done it was probably 2k, but worth every penny!
