Has anyone tried the Footcush product. Thet are sold at West Marine and Cabela's. The Idea is to absorb some of the pounding while standing.
I am looking for something to take pounding off of my back. I thought about the black mats that are used in restaurant but they will mark up the deck.

I am not positive if that's the name of my foot cushion but I have something my wife bought me for my bad knees. It is FANTASTIC. I can stay out all day and never feel the pounding on my legs. It is a piece of thick solid rubber covered with marine vinyl, about 2'x4'. I think it comes in a smaller version too. You can snap it down to the deck if you wish to install screws. I use it without the snaps because I didn't want to drill into the deck. It has very little movement even without the snaps. It also floats so it can also be used as additional floatation. I use it all the time well worth the money.

I ordered one. I don't think I would want to consider it for a floatation device though.

My wife rides horses. She has a neoprene saddle blanket (goes between the saddle and the horse) that's about 1.25 inches thick. She doesn't like it for the horse, so I'm going to take it and cut it down to put on the floor between my bench seat and center console. I haven't tried it yet, but I suspect it will take some of the strain off of the knees and spine when boating in rough water.
