I am going to replace my floor boards this fall and right now I have wood floors covered with vinyl. I like that they are easy to clean, warm to touch and relatively quiet but not very durable and do eventually get water logged. I am considering aluminum and was wondering if anyone switched from wood to aluminum or had another boat with one or the other, what they thought of going to aluminum? I'm worried about being noisy? Cold? Etc? I really like the thought of it, especially the durability and looks like it would be easy to maintain. Was thinking diamond plate for grip so I won't have to paint? Any experience would be apreciated. Thanks.
