Just bought dri dec mats from Kendal Products. 800 232 7211. Cost 3.99 for 12"x12" squares . Has anyone else had experience with this. I did see Chuck Tribolet's piece on be using Almond color to come close to Desert tan. The CSR said the matts can be trimmed to fit.

I have a similar product lining the cabin floor of my sailboat. I'm not wild about it, but it does improve the footing some and is very easy to clean up.

I just think it looks kind of ugly, and is uncomfortable for bare feet.

I know this product and can recommend it to anyone who wants to improve footing in any wet enviroment. It comes in a multitude of colors and can be trimmed and fitted to look great. There are finished edges and corners available also that makes for a professional look. Priced high...but top of the line in their business. Also not bad on bare feet.

It's Dri-Dek, not drideck. (No, I'm knot
korecting yur speling, just making it easier
on anyone who wants to do a web search ;-)

3.99 a square foot is a good price. Kendall
(the manufacturer) is undercutting West
Marine by $1 a square foot. When I was
looking for it, the cheapest place I found
was a couple of discount veterinary and dog
grooming supply places (it gets used in dog
kennels too). It's a good bit cheaper in
3x3 panels.

This is NOT the season to do it. It's
really hard to assemble when it's cold.

I do find it a bit hard on bare feet, but
I'm only barefoot aboard the whaler a couple
of weekends a year. The rest of the time I'm
in my dive boots.

John O -

I've also used it to line the bottom of lockers, fish boxes, or coolers that I'm using for storage. If the interior of the box or locker gets wet, the Dri-Dek keeps your gear up and out of the wet.
