    Does anyone know where I can get 1/2" thick rubber matting in a 6' wide roll. Looking for something cushioning and non slip for our decks.

    Sounds like barn mats would work, try calling a feed or tack store.

    Was looking for similar but weight of solid Matt concerned me. Here's an option from Home Depot

    My friend had the Home Depot product in his Arima and the floor is always filthy with the holes and blood and scales.

    One site said 4 pounds per square foot for solid

    We bought the stuff from Home Depot. It was reasonably priced and it feels good under foot but we aren't happy with the install trying to cut around fish holds, etc. I'd like a product that will fit the entire beam of the boat and then just trim out for openings. I'm not overly concerned about weight (within reason). I figure a little extra weight will just make the DE ride that much better.

    Try North west Rubber in Abbotsford, they make it all from bed mats to barn mats and everything in between

    I had that stuff as well, nice to stand on but horrible for trapping dirt and slime.

    I have a few 3x3 pieces available free to the first taker. I'm located in Tsawwassen. PM me regarding pickup.

    I only use small pieces of the perforated stuff to act as a cushion for my pancake leads to sit on and another piece for my net handles to sit on instead of the deck. They are bad for trapping dirt and blood. I wouldn't have solid for two reasons, weight and the floor will never dry out. Ok on aluminum but not glass with wood core.

    Stall mats. Try local equestrian supplier or even an industrial belt supplier. As in conveyor belt.

    Go to cap it or another truck accessory shop and they will have 4x8 and 4x6 truck bed mats, solid rubber and non skid. Cut to fit deck and done.

    Industrial Plastics have the thick solid rubber mats too. They are usually not a cheap store to buy from though.

    Yes, the plastic shop sure isn't cheap.

    Home Hardware building centres have rubber gym mats, they're 3/8" (10 mm) thick and solid, no perforations. $10 for a 3'x 3' mat.
