Boat Floor Liner

Does anyone have any info. or experience with that bedliner stuff for the floor of an aluminum boat. I have a 18ft. aluminum center console. The floor gets pretty slick when wet or after a few fish slime it up. Any suggestions appreciated.

Bed Liner
I had my aluminum poling platform sprayed with bedliner several years ago. It's not slippery, it's much cooler and has held up very well. The color has fades some, but there is no peeling or cracking.

I think it should work well for your boat floor. The only question I would have is how it would hold up to the likely flexing that may occur with a boat floor. Perhaps someone with it actually sprayed on a flat boat could better answer that.

Good luck.

My Father-in-law had got some Herculiner from some where. It has worked great. I know they used to sell it at Auto Zone. He did it himself. Just primed the metal and rolled it on.

This stuff is the ticket, got in a 18/46 Gator Tail and this stuff will not let you slip or slide with redfish slim or marsh mud all over the floor. One boat at the camp has had it for three years and stays parked outside and the stuff is still in great shape. The 3M self stick is the way to go!

As far as im concerned this the only way to go. Not slippery, not hot, and its soft to stand on while fishing. Takes a lot of pressure off your back while standing. My buddy has it in his Gator-Tail and loves it. Im just waiting for the carpet to start tearing so I can change mine out.

Friday I bought 5 sheets from Gator Trax for $80 a sheet plus tax it's tricky to put down it takes a while to get it straight you have to wipe it down with denatured alchol and on the edges spray glue 3m 90 you can get both at home depot the glue is $13 a can.Also the sheets are not square you have to be carefull when you lay it out I will go take a picture of it and post it in about 10 minutes. ALso you can taper the edges with a sand disc it really dresses it up

i did the floor of my 16 ft sea ark with the non skid paint from bass pro. i added alittle more sand to it and never had a problem with it geting slick. you will see some cracking from where the boat is flexing but it never cause a problem. i used the sand color for the base and webbed the olive and it looked great. cost under $200 for whole boat.
